Encrypted Messaging App Telegram Hits 100m Monthly Active Users, 350k New Users Each Day

butcher Pavel Durov 2 That didn’t take long. Telegram launched just two and a half years ago and is today announcing at Mobile World Congress 2016 it has 100,000,000 monthly active users. Shortly after launching, the messaging app claimed it had 100,000 users communicating on its encrypted platform and then in December 2014 there was 50 million active users, who were generating 1 billion messages daily.

iPhone 6s reservations are already up in Germany

iPhone 6s Plus Preorder Reservation

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus aren’t even officially official but one major carrier is already letting you reserve yours. The move isn’t exactly surprising, as all mobile operators who stock Apple’s smartphone try to make the most of the iPhone, particularly the latest model. We’ve already seen T-Mobile promising current iPhone 6 buyers a seamless iPhone 6s upgrade this fall, and T-Mobile’s parent company has an iPhone 6s play of its own.

Conflicting reports emerge regarding Deutsche Telekom talks with Comcast to sell T-Mobile

temp_comcast

German Manager Magazine (via Reuters) reports today that Deutsche Telekom is in talks with Comcast and others to sell T-Mobile US. Sources say that these potential buyers include satellite TV provider Dish (as corroborated by Reuters), but Comcast is seen as the most attractive option from the point of view of the German telecom, due to its financial strength and ability to buy T-Mobile’s shares in whole:

Deutsche Telekom is in talks with U.S. cable company Comcast about a potential sale of T-Mobile US, German Manager Magazin reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

Deutsche Telekom is in talks with several parties, including satellite provider Dish, according to the magazine, but Comcast is viewed as a more attractive buyer by the German telecoms provider’s management.

Comcast would be a better candidate as it is financially stronger and would be able to make an offer to buy all shares in T-Mobile US, Manager Magazine reported.

As reported by Bloomberg, T-Mobile and Deutsche Telekom shares rose slightly following the news:

T-Mobile shares rose as much as 3 percent in early trading, before the U.S. markets opened. Deutsche Telekom traded 1.8 percent higher at 15.31 euros at 1:44 p.m. in Frankfurt. T-Mobile, which is the fourth-largest U.S. mobile-phone company and is about 66 percent owned by Deutsche Telekom, has a market value of $31.5 billion.

A conflicting report has since surfaced, thanks to a “Comcast source” for ArsTechnica. According to the person familiar with Comcast’s thinking, the company isn’t actually interested in buying T-Mobile. As of yet, no official statement has been made by Comcast or T-Mobile, but Deutsche Telekom has said that it “does not comment on rumors and speculation.”

T-Mobile USA CEO responds to ‘unsustainable’ claim in typical Uncarrier fashion

Happy Holidays from T-Mobile CEO John Legere - YouTube 2014-12-22 15-08-26

What does T-Mobile US CEO John Legere have to say about comments from parent company Deutsche Telekom this week calling his “Uncarrier” approach unsustainable?

“Its total bullshit,” according to a brief response from Legere referring to comments made by Deutsche Telekom CEO Timotheus Höttges in an interview earlier this week.

According to Re/code, Höttges “admitted that T-Mobile’s current approach is not sustainable” during the interview: “The question is always the economics in the long term … and earning appropriate money,” Hoettges said. “You have to earn your money back at one point in time.”

Höttges also noted that he was “intrigued by the idea of having a combination with Sprint and being the ‘super-maverick’ in the market,” referring to T-Mobile’s plans for a merger with the company that fell through last year.

On sustainability, Höttges claimed T-Mobile’s aggressive discounts and Uncarrier approach would not work long-term as the company invests approximately $4-$5 billion each year to keep up with the other carriers.

Despite disagreements on sustainability, Höttges did briefly attempt to praise Legere’s work during the interview: “His management style will never be adaptable to Germany,”Hoettges said, although he added that Legere’s competitive nature and desire to win are very much in line with the company’s culture. “I like people being disruptive… I like people who are brave. He is very much fitting to our DNA, how we want to be, even if he is very American in his approach.”

Video of claimed actual iPhone 6 back emerges alongside storage size rumors

Mac Otakara has posted a video it says is of the actual back of the 4.7-inch model of the iPhone 6, contrasting it with much simpler mockups.

While there’s no way to assess whether the part is genuine, it certainly looks convincing. The many mockups floating around are essentially featureless inside, but this appears to have the detail of the real thing. If it’s a hoax, it’s an extremely elaborate one … 

Here’s a cleaned-up close-up of the inside:

grab

We’ve previously seen claimed photos of both the front and back of the iPhone 6, but this is the first time we’ve seen video.

Chinese site Feng.com is also claiming that the 4.7-inch model will come in only two options, 32GB and 64GB, while the 5.5-inch model will add the option of 128GB. The site echoes an easier report from Deutsche Telekom that Apple is finally dropping the 16GB entry-level option on the new phones.

While dropping the 16GB tier would certainly make sense, and is something I’ve previously suggested Apple might do, we’re viewing the rumor with some caution for now.

There does, though, seem to be growing evidence that the smaller and larger iPhone 6 models will differ in more than just physical size, an earlier KGI report suggesting that the 5.5-inch model will get optical image stabilization while the 4.7-inch model may not.

Netflix may have finally found an ISP it actually likes

Netflix Deutsche Telekom Marketing Alliance

Netflix might have finally found an ally in a very contentious market. Reuters reports that German telecommunications company Deutsche Telekom is in talks with Netflix regarding a potential marketing alliance once the U.S.-based video service begin its international expansion. The news comes via Manager Magazine, a German publication in which it is noted that the two companies are rather far along in negotiations, but they have not reached a deal. In fact, Netflix was still weighing its options with other German telecom companies at the time of publication.

Report: T-Mobile’s Parent Company Might be Screwing With Hungary’s Press

Report: T-Mobile's Parent Company Might be Screwing With Hungary's Press

Deutsche Telekom is the huge corporation that owns two-thirds of T-Mobile. It also, if you follow a chain of sub-companies, owns Origo.hu, a hugely popular Hungarian news site. Origo's editor in chief was just unceremoniously fired, after writing critically about the Hungarian government—which, incidentally, just inked a $1.5 billion broadband agreement with Deutsche Telekom. Something is rotten in the state of Hungary.

European carriers again offering pre-order Tickets for the next iPhone

Much like in the weeks leading up to the iPhone 4S launch in early October 2011, European carriers are preparing for the expected Sept. 12 introduction of the new iPhone with pre-order tickets now available through various carriers. As noted by reports from German website iPhone-ticker.de, Deutsche Telekom will offer pre-order tickets to interested customers through its distribution partners starting today. The tickets will offer a first-come, first-serve basis for the new iPhone with express delivery of the device to ticket holders on the first available day. Carriers are clearly preparing for the launch of Apple’s next-gen iPhone. Not that we need additional verification, as the most recent reports once again confirm a Sept. 12 unveiling and add the device could actually be available for pre-order on the same day. Last year, Vodafone and other carriers quickly followed Deutsche Telekom by offering iPhone pre-order tickets.
