T-Mobile unveils G2x smartphone, 4G Mobile Hotspot, more; doubles HSPA+ speed to 42Mbps

March 22nd, 2011 at 12:01 AM

Just because it’s most likely going to be acquired doesn’t mean T-Mobile is going to be a no-show at CTIA this year. The carrier just introduced its latest smartphone, the T-Mobile G2x, which is a new Android handset from LG. It is powered by a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor with a 4-inch display, an 8-megapixel camera, and Android 2.2. In addition to the new handset, T-Mobile is continuing the company’s 4G onslaught with an announcement that it will be doubling its HSPA+ speeds — first in markets like Las Vegas, New York and Orlando, with Long Island, Northern New Jersey and Chicago close behind. The carrier expects 140 million people in 25 markets to have access to increased 4G speeds by mid-year. T-Mobile also introduced its first portable hotspot — a 4G Mobile Hotspot manufactured by ZTE. It will allow up to five devices to connect via Wi-Fi to a compact 21Mbps-capable 2.64 ounce device. Lastly, T-Mobile says that the Rocket 3.0 from ZTE will be the its first 4G product to take full advantage of the new 42 Mbps service, and it will join the T-Mobile Jet 2.0 and prepaid Rocket 4G laptop sticks. All of the aforementioned devices will be available later this spring except for the Jet 2.0 laptop stick, which will launch later this week on March 23rd.
