This leaked screenshot reveals T-Mobile's launch plans for its first LTE phones

A leaked picture reveals that T-Mobile will launch its LTE 4G handsets starting on March 27. The devices set for release that Wednesday are the  T-Mobile Sonic 2.0 Mobile HotSpot LTE, Samsung Galaxy Exhibit in Pebble Gray in both pre-paid and post-paid models, Samsung Galaxy S III LTE in White Marble or Titanium Gray (launching 3/27 or 4/3), and the BlackBerry Z10 in Black which will also launch on 3/27. Speculation continues to build for a launch of the Apple iPhone 5 for T-Mobile at the end of next Month.

While all of the devices have previously launched on other carriers, this will be these model's first release on T-Mobile. The nation's fourth largest carrier is expected to soon turn on its first LTE market, which is expected to be Las Vegas, followed by Kansas City. It's the same pattern that T-Mobile followed earlier when it turned on HSPA+ in the 1900MHz band and would point next to LTE coverage in Baltimore, Houston and Washington D.C.

Bring LTE in Chicago! I'm really curious to are how fast they're actually going to deploy LTE and the speeds that come along with it.

They need to spread their LTE faster than sprint to take the #3 spot for LTE coverage as quickly as possible. Despite HSPA+'s speeds, LTE availability is already a mindset availability of many smartphone shoppers, especially as even the outdated iphone offers it now.

Very much agree. Their goal is to cover 200 million people by the end of the year. At that rate, Sprint doesn't have a chance and even At&t will be worrying as right now they cover like 65 million. Unless they kick it up a notch, T-mobile will have the 2nd best network for LTE. Not to mention MetroPCS already has LTE(same band as T-mobile plans to use) out in some big cities so when(if) they fully merge, that'll be another huge bump.
