T-Mobile 3G expanding to 21 markets by mid-October


TmobilelogoNow we’re gaining some momentum! After waiting and waiting for T-Mobile to get their high-speed wireless broadband market going, the ball is rolling. In fairness, T-Mo was delayed when they had to wait for the Feds to give up usage of that valuable spectrum. Are the squatters all gone then? They will be in these cities within the next four weeks: Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Orlando, Philadelphia, Sacramento, San Francisco and Seattle all get lit up soon. Six markets follow by year-end: Birmingham, Denver, Detroit, Kansas City, Memphis and Tampa join the 3G goodness. Now if we can just get some handsets to leverage the 3G speeds, we’d all be happy. Of course, we figure that Google Android phone that’s officially getting unveiled next week ought to tide folks over for bit, right?



Hmmm, I just went to the T-Mobile site, and was excited to see that they had a tab for “3G” under the list of phones they offer. So, I clicked on the tab only to find out that there are no phones offered with that feature yet. I assume they will be putting those (or it, if it is only one) soon :-)

Well, of course for this to be useful we need to have phones that have radios supporting the frequency for T-Mos 3G. I think that will be the HTC Dream, and the question will be when will the Dream ship and what will demand be like?
