T-Mobile is following in Sprint’s footsteps and will also be producing a 4G tablet to hit shelves in 2011. Sadly, neither an additional information about the T-Mobile 4G tablets was released, nor a timescale when to expect them in 2011.
A press release on Friday reads that:
T-Mobile is working closely with the majority of our OEM partners to deliver 4G products by integrating HSPA+ into roadmaps in 2011 as the dominant global standard. Consumers will continue to see HSPA+ fuel future innovation in a variety of mobile consumer electronics from smartphones and tablets to emerging devices. T-Mobile will continue to be at the forefront of wireless innovation, delivering an aggressive 4G product lineup in 2011, including 4G tablets.
Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile are all competing in the 4G arena, and it’s only natural to assume the devices they offer with the service would soon include tablets. It looks like competition is heating up, as the New Year will bring at least two 4G tablets. Keep in mind that they’ll have to compete with the iPad 2, rumored to be coming in February 2011.
As you probably know, T-Mobile branded its HSPA+ network “America’s largest 4G network” and is set to further expand it. That’s why it would be interesting to see what kind of speeds the fourth-largest carrier’s subscribers will achieve on their tablets in 2011.
