According to TmoNews, T-Mobile will flip the 3G switch in the NYC market on May 1, also known as tomorrow (or today, or yesterday, etc. if you're reading this from the future!). Austin, Las Vegas, Minneapolis and Miami are the next to be lit up, and by the end of 2008, T-Mobile is planning to cover 20 markets. Right now, the carrier offers four 3G handsets, but we expect that number to increase, now that the technology is actually here. Hit the link for a full list of the cities.
