Judging by a spy shot that a tipster sent to TmoNews, T-Mobile will be getting a couple of new smartphones on September 26 – one by HTC and one by RIM. The devices on the agenda are codenamed HTC Era 42 and BlackBerry Armstrong respectively.
T-Mobile G1 since the latter was once known by the Era G1 codename. To that we can add that the "42" in the device's name likely indicates it will be an HSPA+ device rated for 42Mbps speeds on the downlink. Of course, this is just a guess that can end up being totally wrong.That is pretty much all that the leaked image reveals, which leaves plenty of room for speculation. Some say that the HTC Era 42 could be a successor to the old-school
BlackBerry 10 device. Those are not coming until next year, unfortunately. We are dealing with a low-end handset – the BlackBerry Curve 9320, to be more specific. The smartphone is more or less identical to the Curve 9310 for Verizon and Boost Mobile.
Let us remind you once again that the above information is based on a leak, so it might be inaccurate. We hope to hear more about that mysterious HTC Era 42 as its alleged release date approaches.
