I find it quite laughable that BT is making its return to the mobile market with a “BlackBerry-style smart-phone” considering that device is the HTC Dash, which is a dinosaur here in the States. The service itself dubbed Total Broadband Anywhere seems akin to T-Mobile’s HotSpot@Home service. Actually, it is the same thing. The other device being rolled out with BT’s new service is the Mogul you’ll find available with Sprint. I like HTC devices, but these are two super old, crappy devices. Doesn’t seem like it’s worth the hassle if you ask me, but then again, I don’t live in Britain.
Plans start at £24 a month for the first three months that comes with the BT Hub and BT Hub phone along with either HTC device. After the initial three months you’ll be handcuffed to an 18-month contract that will set you back £29.99/month. Yikes.
