T-Mobile to launch 4G tablets in 2011

T-Mobile has announced today that it will launch a line of 4G enabled tablets sometime in 2011. T-Mobile recently also started calling its HSPA+ network 4G and calling themselves “Americas largest 4G Network.” T-Mobile’s 4G network has been clocked around 10Mbps downstream while the standards for 4G rate the standard to be 100Mbit/s to 1Gb/s for some devices. So right now the “4G” in advertisements really isn’t the 4G standard it is just something for the consumer to easily understand. Here is T-Mobiles official announcement:

“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.”

    The ITU spec for 4G is using a WiMAX network with 100mbps average bandwith. The important thing is people will be begin to compare REAL performance, no matter the technology.

    Real WiMAX speeds (WirelessMAN in IEEE 802.16-2009) will not be available for a while, and I have not seen a single Smartphone with WiMAX 2009 available in the US market.

    Sprint is claiming 4G using Clearwire WiMAX network, but the system only supports speeds up to 6 Mbps. more in line with enhanced 3G systems such as HSDPA.
