In a press release being handed out by T-Mobile today, the company is letting everyone know that come 2011, 4G will be going strong and they’ll have the tablets to prove it. While the operating system on said tablets has yet to be discussed (it’s highly anticipated to be Android), the official statement on the matter is as follows:
“T-Mobile is working closely with the majority of our OEM partners to deliver 4G products by integrating HSPA+ into roadmaps in 2011 as the dominant global standard. Consumers will continue to see HSPA+ fuel future innovation in a variety of mobile consumer electronics from smartphones and tablets to emerging devices. T-Mobile will continue to be at the forefront of wireless innovation, delivering an aggressive 4G product lineup in 2011, including 4G tablets.”
So far the only 4G devices to come from Magenta have been powered by Android – The G2 and myTouch 4G. I wouldn’t be surprised if some WP7 devices came out with HSPA+ on board before next year comes to a close, but I would be surprised if the OS made it’s way onto T-Mobile’s first 4G tablet.
What do you guys think, a T-Mobile branded 4G packin’ Android powered tablet? What’s a Galaxy Tab again?
