T-Mobile Lies Some More: 4G Tablets Coming in 2011

Okay, enough, T-Mobile. Just because Sprint is announcing a 4G tablet in 2011 doesn't mean you have to do the same, especially since you don't even have a 4G network. We haven't heard anything of the platform or even the brand that the tablet will be on, only the fact that T-Mobile is still trying to fit in with the cool kids by using all these fancy buzzwords. I think it's because everybody except pre-teens and grannies have moved on to better carriers with more reliable and faster networks.

Here's what T-Mobile has to say about it.

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.

I can't believe they used the terms '4G' and 'HSPA+' in the same sentence only separated by a few words and thought that people wouldn't notice. So expect a 3G+ tablet in 2011, folks.
