Leaked T-Mobile roadmap includes launch date for HTC 8X of November 14th
Nothing like a leaked roadmap to really get your juices flowing. All of those upcoming handsets, some that we've already heard about countless times and some that are new, have expected launch dates making them all seem all the more real. The latest roadmap belongs to T-Mobile and comes from a leaked screenshot from its "Frontline Planner". It shows a variety of models including the Windows Phone 8 flagship for one manufacturer.

Leaked screenshot shows a fresh roadmap for T-Mobile

Let's start a week from next Thursday with the expected launch of the BlackBerry Armstrong. This is a name we have heard before, from an earlier T-Mobile roadmap leaked last July and is believed to be the BlackBerry Curve 9320. This is a low-end handset with a 240 x 320 (QVGA) resolution on its 2.44 inch display. It's worth noting that this is not a touchscreen model. ON October 29th, the carrier is planning a 'color refresh' for the Samsung Galaxy S II. On Halloween, the Huawei Summit is scheduled to launch, scaring you with tales about espionage and spying. On that same date, the top-end model of LG's Optimus L line, the LG Optimus L9 (hey, that rhymes!)  should be making its debut. The device was officially introduced by the nation's fourth largest carrier this week and brings its 4.5 inch qHD display to the table.

Turning to November, the first launch of the month is expected to take place on November 7th with the release of the Samsung Toba. This is a new name that we haven't heard before. The next week, November 14th, we expect to see the launch of the Windows Phone 8 flagship for Taiwan's own HTC. Of course, we are referring to the HTC 8X. This phone has a ridiculous (we're saying that in a good way) 342ppi pixel density on its 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 screen and is another phone powered by the dual-core 1,5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM 8960. Lastly, also on the same day, the roadmap shows the Dell BMW which is expected to be a Windows 8 laptop.

I really want to buy a windows phone out right just to see if its worth it or not but at the prices they are going for out right I might as well just stick with android. HMmm maybe I cna find a used windows 7 or 7.5 phone on the cheap.

Odd, nothing about the Nokia Lumia 810?

Also, laptop from T-Mobile sounds promising... got enough equipment credit built up I might be able to get that for very little!

I had the tiniest hope that we'd see the Nexus 4 on there. Sold direct in store would be awesome. :)

This pretty much assures that the Galaxy Note 2 will launch on Tmobile October 24th. It's no way Tmobile will wait till after November 14th to launch the Galaxy Note 2 with the event scheduled by Samsung in New York City October 24th. I think at bare minimum we on Tmobile will be pre ordering our Galaxy Note 2 on October 24th or walking in a Tmobile store to purchase out right.
