T-Mobile has just unleashed an interesting marketing maneuver for their Galaxy S 4G by claiming it’s faster than any iPhone – and offering $1,000 to anyone who can prove them wrong!
For those in the Seattle area, from Friday through Sunday, T-Mobile is calling on iPhone owners to bring in their handsets to one of 10 local stores, where it will be matched against a Galaxy S 4G in a series of download speed tests conducted by an app specified by T-Mobile.
If the iPhone comes out on top, T-Mobile will pay out $1,000. If not, then the iPhone owner can trade in their iPhone for up to $300 credit towards a T-Mobile smartphone.
This intrigues me, because for some strange reason, I’ve always thought that interface, ease of use, and the speed at which I can be productive in apps are far more important than speed… but maybe I’m just crazy…
