Posted: 27-Apr-2011 [Source: T-Mobile USA]

[T-Mobile challenges Seattle-area iPhone owners--if their iPhone beats the Galaxy S 4G smartphone in a speed test, you will win a $1,000.]

Bellevue, WA -- T-Mobile USA, Inc. today issued a challenge to Seattle-area iPhone owners: If your iPhone beats our Galaxy S™ 4G smartphone in a speed test,1 you’ll get $1,000.

iPhone owners who bring their phones into participating T-Mobile® retail locations in the Seattle area April 29 through May 1 can take part in the T-Mobile Speed Challenge. iPhone owners will compete in a head-to-head, best-of-three test against the Galaxy S 4G using a free third-party application. If the download speeds on the iPhone beat those on the Galaxy S 4G two out of three times, T-Mobile will give the iPhone owner $1,000.

Even if the Galaxy S 4G prevails, iPhone owners can still benefit by switching to a T-Mobile smartphone running on America’s Largest 4G Network™. Participants also can take advantage of an offer, available at participating stores, in which they trade in their phone and get up to $300 in value when they purchase one of T-Mobile’s fastest smartphones.2

“T-Mobile is so confident in our network that we’re willing to put $1,000 on the line in a public competition against an iconic device such as the iPhone,” said Eric Schlumpf, vice president, Pacific Northwest, T-Mobile USA. “For months, we’ve heard various advertisements from our competitors claiming to have fast networks. We’ve decided to put our money where our mouth is by putting one outstanding smartphone against another in a test with measurable results. In this way, we plan to demonstrate the incredible speeds available on T-Mobile, America’s largest 4G network.”

T-Mobile’s 4G service now reaches 167 markets and more than 200 million people nationwide.3 The Galaxy S 4G manufactured by Samsung is T-Mobile’s first smartphone capable of delivering theoretical peak download speeds of up to 21 Mbps and is a great device for consumers who want to fully benefit from 4G network speeds with live video chat, fast audio and video streaming, mobile gaming, and social networking.
