There is no doubt that T-Mobile wants to be right up there with the big boys, the Verizons and AT&Ts of the world, but for that to happen it had to overtake Sprint first which held third place. Following a failed acquisition bid by AT&T in 2011 T-Mobile got to work and with some industry-first moves that it made over the past year or so the carrier has been able to substantially increase its subscriber base so much so that it has overtaken Sprint and become the third largest mobile carrier in the country.

EOS M3 EF-M18-55STM FSLEarlier this year Canon announced their latest mirrorless camera in the form of the Canon EOS M3. Previously Canon’s mirrorless efforts could be said to be somewhat half-hearted so safe to say, we were very curious about how the EOS M3 would perform. Unfortunately at the time of announcement, Canon stated that there were no plans to bring it stateside.

However according to a report from Canon Rumors, they have heard from one of their sources that there is a possibility of the camera making its way to the North American market. Canon USA is said to be currently debating the idea of whether or not they should bring the device here, which we guess isn’t surprising given the stiff competition in the mirrorless market these days.
