T-Mobile to launch HTC Espresso aka myTouch Slide or myTouch 2 for U.S. in May?
T-Mobile customers are getting excited about some of the superstar smartphones that are about to crack the line-up. TmoNews is reporting on a few of them. While almost everyone knows that the HTC HD2 with it's massive 4.3 inch capacitive screen (yes, we said capacitive) is coming to the U.S. and T-Mobile in Q1, a tipster told the site that a Motorola Android device would be launched by the carrier on March 10th and TmoNews wonders if it could be the Sholes Tablet. A week later, a Nokia smartphone will join the T-Mobile gang and once again, throwing its 2 cents into the ring, TmoNews suggests that it could be the Maemo powered N900. The tipster also passed along word that the HTC Espresso, an Android model we have seen dressed in Sense UI, and aka the myTouch Slide or myTouch2, will be launched May 17th with the latest Sense UI, a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard, a display with a  resolution of  320 X 480 pixels and it will feature the same 528MHz processor as seen on the Hero/Magic .If this pans out, it would be an amazing selection of some of the hottest devices to choose from as the Nation's fourth largest carrier seeks to move up in the standings. With a group of devices like these, the cellphone fanatics that seek out the hottest phones of the moment will be opening T-Mobile accounts.

tmo is tmocrap..now that Att dropped it's monthly pricing due to vzw starting..the monthly pricing Is the same as tmo monthly for 1 or 2 line family plans..so..my point is tmo always had the better phones..but now Att has the bigger network which is now 7.2hsdpa..Att us soon to get droid phones anyways

I agree... Although they have good phones their network coverage sucks (meaning its worse than att) and its much slower. The only reason to go to T mobile is for a nice phone (that will be unusable on their network) or to save money...

Uhm...i have tmobile and my network is just fine. My girlfriends iPhone is sometimes unusable in parts of VA where as my G1 always has signal. I guess At&t would be the better option if you wanted the crappy Mot Backflip and live in rural Montana. If you live in the city T-Mo is the only sensible GSM option.

I would like to see T-mobiles phones at Sprints pricing on Verizons network with AT&Ts international coverage...if someone manages that, they'd be unstoppable (and probably bankrupt, but still....)

Do you also believe in the tooth fairy? Soon enough Att will get away from the iPhone (which I own and love) and will be the dominate network.... Its much faster than anything else in the US.... (besides sprints 4G confined to Baltimore and Seattle.)

I don't know where your getting your information from, but Sprints 4G network is in a lot more places than just Baltimore and Seattle. It's in Philadelphia, Seattle, Baltimore, Washington D.C. (unoffically), Las Vegas......do I need to go on. And as far as your comment about ATT being the dominate network, that's false. Everyone wants to talk about the supposed 3G network running at 7.2Mbps. Please show it to me I have yet to see a ATT phone break 1.0Mbps and overall see horrible coverage with ATT period. I have to say though I give them the fact that they do have the international footprint, but not everyone travels overseas, the main concern is for where people live and work, which is here in the US. Other than that I have Sprint and everyone wants to say we have such a horrible network, well we do have the fastest data network and as for our voice it is good and we have coverage everywhere and anywhere we don't we roam onto Verizon's so called amazing network. We also don't pay to roam and I know all the Verizon fanboys are going to look at this and say it is not possible that its not true, but it is. Look at the facts, besides reading the articles that state we have roaming agreements in place with Verizon, all CDMA phones in the US on Sprint and Verizon run off of the 850MHz and 1900MHz networks, ok so Verizon's network is 850MHz and Sprint's is 1900MHz, so whose fooling who here. Sprint's got the best coverage( along with Verizon) and the best plans (that Verizon can't match) the only thing they lack is a stronger lineup. The hero is nice and so is the Touch Pro2, but they are no Nexus One or HTC HD2.

All I have to say is "Thanks apple for getting AT&T so focused on your gay iphone, because of that distraction all the best GSM phones are going to Tmo." Now we just need a distraction for Verizon now, so Sprint can get more awesome handsets. Oh I forgot it's not going to matter Sprint will be the only US carrier running wimax. So that means they will have very few handset options...
