T-Mobile has been known for radical moves and interesting experiments. The latest project from the Magenta team is “The Underground,” a special portal for devices with limited availability. The service wasn’t launched with great fanfare, and right now there’s not much to see on the site. The options are currently limited to the gold Galaxy S5, Samsung’s latest Gear devices and the Jawbone UP24. When more devices will be added, only time will tell.
T-Mobile has said that The Underground portal is meant for “true enthusiasts.” At the moment, however, there’s nothing that’s really of interest there. We’re hoping that perhaps T-Mobile will begin to offer devices that normally aren’t sold stateside, such as Oppo devices. The idea is loaded with potential, but T-Mobile needs to do more to unlock it.
What devices would you like to see become available in The Underground?
