T-Mobile Expected To Receive 42 Mbps Devices From HTC By The End Of 2011

With the recent roll out of their 42 Mbps network, T-Mobile’s next logical step is to introduce devices capable of reaching those speeds.  And who better to provide the handsets than the Taiwanese giants themselves, HTC?  With blazing speeds in over 152 local markets, T-Mobile aims to take the company a little closer towards LTE.  But they’re not the only ones entering the game.  According to various sources, we could expect to see devices manufactured by HTC, Huawei, LG and Samsung by the end of 2011.  And it’s very likely that the first handset to be offered could be the T-Mobile Sonic, a Huawei device which we saw pass through the FCC with 42 Mbps radios installed.  Only time will tell, but if you’re a T-Mo customer, these have to be some exciting times for you, until AT&T takes over that is.  Feel free to shout out and share how you really feel in the comments below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    Great news, but as soon as ATT takes over my 4 lines are going to Sprint. It will be a very cold day before ATT ever gets another dollar of mine.
