As we reported
yesterday, and confirmed today by a press-release, T-Mobile will launch its new flagship model on November 3rd. The T-Mobile myTouch 4G is the official name given to the handset, which is chock full of features. By putting '4G' on the name of the phone, the nation's fourth largest carrier made a subtle notice to the other mobile operators that its HSPA+ pipelines run at 4G speeds and should be called a 4G network under the loose definition of such in the U.S. The T-Mobile myTouch 4G will be priced at the gold standard of $199.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a 2 year contract.
Just in case someone didn't get the message about how fast the carrier's HSPA+ network runs, Andrew Sherrard, VP of product management over at T-Mobile, said, "Taking advantage of the 4G speeds on T-Mobile's HSPA+ network, the new myTouch delivers a faster and more compelling experience than most competing smartphones on the market." The broadband pipelines currently bring access to 4G speeds in 65 major metropolitan areas, and by the end of the year should reach 100 major metropolitan areas and 200 million people.
