A major part of mobile communications is speed, and networks that offer the best performance undoubtedly command the market.
With this in mind Slash Gear reported on an announcement made by T-Mobile at CTIA, claiming doubled speeds for its 4G network. These benefits will be seen over three major US cities including Las Vegas, New York and Orlando.
As of today T-Mobile users in these areas will gain the faster access. For the rest of us don’t be disheartened as the mobile carrier plans to expand the uprated 42Mbps download speeds across Chicago and on from New York down to Long Island.
To celebrate its new found performance, T-Mobile wants to introduce us to a new device, the LG G2x with Google. According to Phone News the new handset features a 1GHz Tegra 2 dual-core processor. Also noted is that the 4-inch touchscreen smartphone will run on Android 2.2 and house an 8 mega-pixel rear facing camera with LED flash capabilities, along with a front camera for video calls.
A new addition to the T-Mobile modem range will also be rolled out sometime in spring, to complement the new data speed. The Rocket 3.0 USB modem will feature 4G Mobile Hot spot and support the lower 21Mbps speed rating. More 4G compatible additions will be available soon with a T-Mobile Jet 2.0 laptop stick hitting us first.
Will you be signing up to the faster network speed from T-Mobile, or checking out the new LG G2x smartphone?
