T-Mobile puts up teaser site for its first HSPA+ model?
Recently, T-Mobile tweeted that it would soon introduce the first handset for its HSPA+ network. Today, the carrier put up a teaser site for a device known as the HTC Vanguard. As we reported, the carrier said it planned on offering a smatrphone for its zippy pipelines before the end of the summer, and the expected September 9th launch date for the Vanguard would meet that goal. According to Android and Me, the third Monday in August is supposed to have a big announcement relating to Android.

The Vanguard is expected to sport a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and supposedly has a peak of 14.4Mbps while T-Mobile's HSPA+ network supports speeds up to 21Mbps. With the carrier promoting this network as the largest to offer 4G speeds, the first handset to take advantage of the zippy pipelines is going to get a huge marketing budget by the nation's 4th largest carrier. So don't think that this is all you are going to hear or see about this device. No, this is just the tip of the iceberg and as we get closer to September, you can expect to see a flood of info about the first handset for T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. You can sign up to receive e-mail whenever news occurs about either the network or the new phones for it by signing up at the source link.

I hope this is finally the HTC device that can at least be close to what Verizon and Sprint have.... Front facing camera, Big screen, 1 ghz processor (already confirmed), flash on camera would be nice and updated to at least 2.1..... well I can dream at least....

Another website, I forget which, thought that the Nokia N8 is the device in that trailer. I doubt it considering the lack of a 1GHz processor. But if the device on the website is the N8 then this could be very popular for T-Mobile. Although Symbian isn't the greatest operation system in the world, it is pretty user friendly. The addition of widgets on Symbian 3 will encourage some to give it a try. The top notch camera on the N8 could be a very good advertising point that could get some interested in the phone. As well as the HSPA+ service.

the N8 has an awesome camera... unfortunately many of the high end android sets now support HD video recording so by the time it comes out it might not stand out as much.
