T-Mobile to release HSPA Plus device this summerAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Sure, T-Mobile's HSPA+ network now reaches 85 million people, but what good is a spiffy, new network without a hot, cutting edge device to take advantage of it? T-Mobile won't have to worry about that soon, as the carrier announced today that they will be launching an HSPA+-capable device some time this summer. No other information was given, but I'm sure we'll be hearing more sooner rather than later.
T-Mobile has been touting its HSPA+ network and the "4G speeds" that it's capable of producing, but so far the only devices that have had access to it are data sticks. A speedy HSPA+ device with T-Mobile's cheap plan pricing would almost certainly be a big seller. We may not have much more information to go on than a "summer" release, but come on. The fact that we're finally going to get an HSPA+ device is enough to get me excited!
