Houston.. Houston … The Rocket will be launched on March 14th!

By: t-marco March 12th, 2010

T-Mobile announced that the webConnect Rocket USB Laptop Stick, the first HSPA+ device for the U.S., will be available beginning on Sunday, March 14. HSPA+ is interesting because it could enable 4G LTE-like speeds using existing 3G infrastructure.

The device is branded the WebConnect Rocket USB Laptop Stick, and will initially be sold in Philadelphia, where TMo has recently upgraded to the 7.2Mbps iteration of HSPA. While AT&T is avoiding the HSPA+ step, planning to move straight to LTE from 2011 onwards, T-Mobile does not have new spectrum for 4G and is set to pursue a longer HSPA+ path, possibly topped up with a WiMAX or LTE partnership with a spectrum holder like Clearwire.

The webConnect Rocket USB Laptop Stick retails for $99.99 with a two-year contract and an Even More webConnect data plan. $60 per month gets you 5GB, while $30 gets you just 200MB; both charge 20 cents per megabyte over that. Another new option, Even More Plus webConnect, drops the annual contract and lowers the monthly prices by $10 in each case, but raises the up-front price of the modem.

Rumor: T-Mobile training employees on HTC Desire?

By: t-marco March 10th, 2010

First we heard that the HTC Desire will hit AT&T in May/June, and now, according to Androincia, a manager at a T-Mobile USA store was being trained on several phones that are coming to the carrier this year, and the HTC Desire Android phone is on the list. They also said that they contact other T-Mobile employees and they said that their manager’s are off for training.

It seems that the device in question comes with a large touchscreen display, which means that it might not be the smaller Motorola CLIQ XT, but the name is still unconfirmed. For what it’s worth, considering that T-Mobile already has the Nexus One on its airwaves, there are great chances that Desire will also land there, especially since the two phones are basically the same device. However, previous rumors suggested that other carriers in the US would receive it, and this remains in the rumor side until further confirmation emerges.

Just rumors guys.. stay tuned for more information
