T-Mobile To Release 24 Data Devices In 2011?

Today’s news of the Dell Streak 7 on its way to T-Mobile has me wondering just how many data devices T-Mobile is planning to release in 2011. Rumor has it that we could see close to 24, that’s right, 24 data devices during the course of the next year. That’s a combination of USB modems, MiFi hotspots, laptops and tablets, tablets and more tablets. With plenty of news sources calling 2011 the year of the Tablet it would behoove T-Mobile to launch at least a “few” that are HSPA+ ready. More to the point, if T-Mobile can keep data pricing at a minimum compared to the competition combined with heavy promotion of HSPA+ speeds, perhaps they can manage to steal a few customers tired of higher costs.

With the Dell Streak 7 all but a sure thing, we’re also hearing that LG has a tablet in store for T-Mobile, unfortunately that’s about all we know. LG + T-Mobile = tablet, that’s about the sum of our current information on that front but our sources are sure it exists in at least a test phase.

We also expect the Galaxy Tab 2, or at the minimum, a Galaxy Tab that runs HSPA+ to surface sometime in the coming year as well based on rumors our ninjas are hearing. Though it’s more likely the Galaxy Tab could see more than just HSPA+, including a spec bump to a better processor, improved screen etc. That sounds more in line with what a second generation Tablet would look like.

We of course can’t count out HTC and the expectations for their forthcoming Tablet (s), which we also expect to make a T-Mobile appearance.

Needless to say, from what we’re hearing T-Mobile is ready to start 2011 with a bang and hit the ground running. We’d be remiss if we said we weren’t looking forward it, or just downright excited.

    Great, too many tablets

  • Him

    Tablets without Honeycomb are just not worth it (IMO). Google doesn’t want 2.3 and below on a tablet so why would you do it? Wait for Honeycomb and THEN unleash the dragon. I’ve played with the Galaxy Tab in my store and its nice, but still……wait for Honeycomb.

    • J-Hop2o6

      i agree.. but anyways, keep on improving your line up Tmo! you did great in 2010.. 2011 sounds like your year also!

    • OneUpDave

      With so many legit manufacturers committing to tablets soon, we can only assume that Honeycomb will be out when these start getting released. But I do agree with your opinion, I refuse to consider buying any tablets until they’re running a tablet-optimized OS.

    maybe they’ll get cheaper now

    not interested, what about mobile devices (cellphones)?… iPhone?

    I need a new cellphone. My G1 is slowly dying and I don’t want anything they currently have out. Nothin peaks my interest. The Mytouch line makes me cringe. and the Nexus S…meh

  • Redyian82

    If T-Mobile will release 24 Data Devices this coming 2011 that’s GREAT. But in my humble opinion, I think calling feature is Perfect. I don’t want to carry a tablet and cellphone at same time. If they can put it together into one device. That’s what they call it “ALL in ONE Device” is amazing.

    • http://twitter.com/SParKlngCyaNide SparklingCyanide

      see I disagree, I really don’t want my Tablet to make calls. I’d rather carry a separate 4G phone. but I mean everybody has a preference and Mine is definitely not the only one so they should cater to others as well! : )

      • Redyian82

        Thats your preference but if you think about it you will pay two data plan + your voice plan. I respect your opinion. Mine just a wish if they can it. I mean harm, I just express my opinion, so do you. Honestly we don’t have any control to this topic just a wish list, just an open idea.

    Dear T-Mobile,

    You know what would make you #1? Or at least push you past Sprint? Offer a bitchin tablet with an unlimited data plan for $10 per month.

    • Petey

      forreals. unlimited data plan for $10 or no mandatory data plan with smart phones.

      • Anonymous

        That would be nice, but it will never happen. They’re in business to make money, not lose money! How can they expand 3g and hspa+ and give 10 dollar data plans?

        • uDummy

          Well, consumers are rarely logical. These are the same people paying $8 for an all-you-can-eat Netflix Watch Instantly plan and seem to think they’re getting less service because they have to wait an extra 28 days to watch Inception.

          Whoever said ‘The customer is always right’ should have their grave dug up and pissed upon.

        • Anonymous

          LOL. I guess I just have a different point of view because I own a small business. I put customer service first and foremost, but at some point the customer has to give something up (money), to get the services they want/desire. It’s not a free world!

        • Grammatica di Polizia

          Your crude and rude comment requires comment:

          Sprint had the same attitude and expressed the same feelings as you about the slogan “The customer is always right.” And for 6 years Sprint employees got away with their cocky attitude.

          Come 2009 we saw the Sprint CEO on TV in tears, begging for customers to come back, saying “we have changed, we were wrong, you are our number one priority.”

          But from what I read on the Net, there’s still a lot of Sprint employees, who despite what the CEO says, feel the way you do. Note: “The customer is always right” is an attitude and general principle. It’s does not literally mean that the customer is always right, under any circumstances.

          Your attitude is not surprising. Professors in business school instruct that most companies who enjoy a monopoly of service or are “too big” have problem, “dummy” employees who mistreat customers. These employees feel and behave like they are doing the customer a favor even answering the phone. The employees enjoy dueling with and telling off customers who they feel are wrong or stupid. The employees like feeling they are in charge and command of the call. They love the ultimate display of power, disconnecting the call, knowing there won’t be any immediate recourse by the customer hung up on. Of course the customer eventually takes his business elsewhere.

          The professors also teach that companies with “piss poor” customer service eventually suffer and many go out of business.

          By the way, if you want to “have their (sic) grave dug up and pissed upon,” that person is Harry Selfridge. Buy yourself a plane ticket and go here:

          http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=13731901

          And here’s other slogans and phrases for which you might want to piss on Selfridge’s corpse:

          = The boss drives his men; the leader coaches them.

          = The boss depends upon authority; the leader on good will.

          = The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm.

          = The boss says “I”; the leader, “we.”

          = The boss fixes the blame for the breakdown; the leader fixes the breakdown.

          = The boss knows how it is done; the leader shows how.

          = The boss says “Go”; the leader says “Let’s go!”

        GREAT idea!!! That makes perfect sense to the company! Lose $200 or so by subsidizing the cost of the phone for you, and then have no addition on the plan to regain that lost money.

  • 10+ years w/ tmobile.

    I’d rather tmobile boost their coverage everywhere. I live 25 miles north of Kansas city, and my coverage area is “good” which means in my house, service is spotty. In the basement, where I spend most of my time, I don’t get any service at all. I’m glad tmobile is coming out with more devices including tablets, however I think in order for them to compete, they also need stellar service. We all know that’s what they lack, they know it too, so why don’t they fix it?

    • Cause I can

      So, coming from an employee stand point, and I by no means am touting that T-Mobile is the best that there is to be. There are definitely areas of opportunity that T-Mo needs to improve on. However, there is more to just adding a tower in one specific location that is required. There has to be permission granted by the FCC for the spectrum in that particular part of the US, T-mobile then buys that spectrum when it is offered by the FCC, there has to be the population to support putting in the required equipment to justify the cost of a said $750,000+ piece of equipment. Now, take that all the way across the nation, and you’re looking at easily a billion dollar investment over a year to add 100 or so towers. It’s expensive.

      So, in order for this all to be done, there has to be revenue. How do you think there is revenue generated? By offering rate plans that justify people being with T-Mobile, listening to their customers in the type of line up that they are wanting (it has been changing with the change of the CEO), having people locked into service agreements to justify subsidizing the cost of a handset (we don’t get them for free – even though folks think that the carriers do), there is the work force that needs to be paid. Who do you think answers the phone when you have a technical issue cause your phone is not doing what it is that it should be doing — o yea, that’s right .. it’s me. You have to take into consideration as well, for a customer to call the company just once …. it costs $7.00 for that initial phone call, now what if you need to be transfered (?), then that’s $14.00. There is more to this equation that folks think.

      Now, this is what gets me that FOLKS DON’T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND. CELLULAR SIGNAL IS A RADIO WAVE. It cannot travel through concrete, it cannot travel through steel, or anything else that you want it to go through. If you want the stuff to be guaranteed to work INDOORS, get yourself a landline phone and stop complaining!

      I can honestly say, after working for Sprint, ATT Wireless (back in the day), Cingular, and back to ATT — working at T-Mobile, is the only company out of those providers that I can honestly say listens to the customer. Why do you think it is that we win back to back JD Power awards? Every service provider provides the same thing, cell signal. But the customer service experience is different with T-Mobile than with anyone else.

      • stonekillr

        Are you saying it costs 750,000 dollars to build a new site?? If you are, your on crack.

  • Which way is Up?

    Dear T Mobile, after being with you for over 8 years now, I say, bring it on. During this last year you have proved to me that you are willing to be more agressive with your phone collection. Since 2009, I have not felt the need to purchase an unlocked phone, you guys have certainly stepped up.

    Now, promise me a beastly 4.3′ Android from HTC as I really dont want to give up HSPA speeds for a Desire HD, cool?

  • Tyrone M Jackson

    Dear T-Mobile, loyalty is a two-way street. After being with you for over a decade, I am about to switch to Verizon. Why? because of your complete lack of support for your products. You released a batch of Android phones in 2010 that had less capability than a huge swath of your non-Android phones, not due to hardware limitations, but due to software limitations. All of these issues are addressed in the T-Mobile version of Android 2.2, but rather than focus on getting these phones updated, you’ve devoted your limited resources into the bloatware no one wants but that you get paid to load up on these phones. As a consequence, most of the myTouch line, for example, was touted as going to get updated to Android 2.2 literally before they were launched. (The Slide is an example of this.) So given the complete neglect of your customers once they layout their cash for a phone and commit to a 2-year contract, why should anyone care about your releasing new phones that too, will go unsupported? What? I could just buy a new phone at full price to make up for the lack of T-Mobile support for it’s phones? It’s actually cheaper for me to pay the $200 T-Mobile early termination fee and get a subsidized phone from another carrier.

    • uDummy

      What were the capabilities you were lacking? Unless you’re more specific, I just assume you’re talking about superfluous crap that only you care about. Go to VZW already.

      • Cry Baby

        Dear Tyrone,
        Absolutely, go to Verizon and spend a ton more money for your service and when you get tired of spending all of that money each and every month you can pay that $375 ETF fee and come back over crying your little eyes out. To make it even better I hope that you buy that phone through a 3rd party and then have an ETF through them also. Just like “The Darkness” said, its not on the carrier to make the software or the hardware. When it comes to loyalty you are probably the same person that thinks that everything in the world is entitled to you just because you are you

        • Tyrone M Jackson

          The carriers both set the priorities for their phones getting updates, and are the final “bloatware” installers. If a root version of a version of Android exists that runs on your phone, then (a) Google’s part is done and (b) your hardware is supported. The gatekeeper at that stage is the carrier. Shilling for the carriers does not change that.

      • Tyrone M Jackson

        The main thing is WiFi calling. If you’ve never needed it, you’d never understand. If you have used it (e.g. work in a building where that blocks the tower coverage), you’ll realize its a “can’t live without it” kind of thing.

      • Anonymous

        Ultimate D X, you are 100% wrong on this. The carriers have had the updated software for many months. It is almost ENTIRELY the fault of the carrier. As much as I’d like to blame Sammy for my lack of updates, the real reason is Tmo is wanting to make sure that everything works with their stuff. Tmo is the one that updates the phones, not Samsung. Need to get your facts straight youngster…

        • TMO_ATL

          ELK it goes simply as this

          UPDATE RELEASE Google > Manufacturer > Carrier, then it is up to the manufacturer if they want the carrier to have the release or vice versa, the carrier determines which device will recieve an update

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2SQQCAN7ZQ4PGUKAY7NIMEWDUU cyberstoic

          Right, the carriers get them and then they go into testing, as it should. Even with that, as in the case of the Samsung Behold 2, there are bugs and that update ended up getting pulled for months until they were worked out. I would rather that the carrier adequately test the updates that release buggy software that bricks phones.

      Have you seen what the 2.2 update did to most mytouch3g users phones? Most of them became slow, buggy, laggy, and overall a bad user experience. Kind of like this http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/cleanplatecharlie/2009/05/python_eats_alligator.php
      stuffed too much in it and there was no room left for an experience. Not to mention that as soon as any new device comes in, I’m sure that T-Mobile has a flood of customers that have phantom problems magically appear on their new devices. Long story short, if you want to get a new phone, call them and ask for one, if you’ve really been there for over a decade, just get in touch with their loyalty department, they work for you, unlike any customer service for any other provider.

        You comments are amusing to me because as a customer that has been with them for a decade now, they had no interest in hooking me up with a deal to upgrade to a new phone when they were offering “select customers” a G2 for free. In fact when I threatened to leave they didn’t do anything to try and keep me as a customer. I like Tyrone will most likely be ditching TMobile very soon b/c they care more about adding new customers and creating churn than they do about keeping their long time customers and reducing churn.

      I also agree with Tyrone, and I have onl.y been with TMO for 2years. Sure, the customer service is outstanding but the loyalty department is asleep at the wheel. Why should i stay with you on the promise of 4G not avialbel where I live? “Well, we may roll out ino your area soon and you would miss out!”

      Why does a new customer get a better deal then an existing customer? “Im sorry but thats the only deal we have available to you”

      I’m supposed to be line up to be a part of this kind of attitude? hell, I can get that crap from AT&T or VERIZON. Bye bye tmobile.

    • beastly

      Sorry to hear it. As a T-Mo employee myself, I must say that FrankBarrone doesn’t speak for most of us. Personally, I don’t know all that goes into software updates, and I’m usually pretty happy with the software that originally comes on a device. But it’s important to you, and so it should be important to your service provider. I don’t know when the next update comes out for the Slide, but before you go to Verizon, maybe you could give us a call and give us a chance to address your concerns? You may still decide to switch, but at least you’d be fully aware of all your options and be making an informed decision.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2SQQCAN7ZQ4PGUKAY7NIMEWDUU cyberstoic

      You might want to take your complaint to the phone manufacturers who insist on putting their BLOATWARE interfaces on top of and integrated into android. Motorola BLUR is laggy and integrated into android. Samsung needs to seriously stop wizzing on their phones with TouchWiz, and Sense – while probably the best of three – is no better. All of these manufacturer UI interfaces stuck on/in android make the upgrade path SLOW and DIFFICULT.

      It would be significantly better if they would develop these as apps or a launcher, so that the upgrade of android would not be impeded. No where is that t-mobile’s fault that I can see. And t-mobile, in my opinion, has been cautious in releasing the upgrades because it does not seem that the manufacturer UI interfaces play nice with the new android (e.g., Samsung Behold II).

      As for me, I don’t blame t-mo for this at all. However, no more bloatware on my phones. If is not stock android, I don’t want it.

        I’m not in favor of your preference of words to describe “Sprint” and it’s service/CS, but I totally agree with what you are trying to say about them. They SUCK!!!!

    I would just like to have a 4.3 inch Android device like the EVO please! T-Mo always seems the last to get the good phones.

      I’ll take a 4.3″ inch device in either android or Windows Mobile as long as it is 4G. I would have no doubt purchased the Nexus S if it was 4G. That would have been a no brainer.

      • FrankBarrone

        nexus s is pretty slick but because its made by samsung, I will never spend a penny on it. samsung = junk. korean, fish headed, dog eating junk.

      “Good” is a relative term. What’s good to you isn’t necessarily good to others. The MT4G has been on the “Tops” list of most blogs best Android phones of 2010.

      ummmm have u seen the phones offered by verizon and at&t? sheer and utter junk. And btw, the evo is a piece of sheeit too. Better have a couple spare batteries fully charged on hand if u r using a prehistoric evo. what’d it come out like almost a year ago? yeah, sprint sucks bull balls.

    • Ryan

      Compare a vibrant or nexus s to the evo and they will blow the evo out of the water everytime. I currently have a vibrant that has been “moddified”, even stock there is no other screen besides that on the iPhone4 that compares

    So, coming from an employee stand point, and I by no means am touting that T-Mobile is the best that there is to be. There are definitely areas of opportunity that T-Mo needs to improve on. However, there is more to just adding a tower in one specific location that is required. There has to be permission granted by the FCC for the spectrum in that particular part of the US, T-mobile then buys that spectrum when it is offered by the FCC, there has to be the population to support putting in the required equipment to justify the cost of a said $750,000+ piece of equipment. Now, take that all the way across the nation, and you’re looking at easily a billion dollar investment over a year to add 100 or so towers. It’s expensive.

    So, in order for this all to be done, there has to be revenue. How do you think there is revenue generated? By offering rate plans that justify people being with T-Mobile, listening to their customers in the type of line up that they are wanting (it has been changing with the change of the CEO), having people locked into service agreements to justify subsidizing the cost of a handset (we don’t get them for free – even though folks think that the carriers do), there is the work force that needs to be paid. Who do you think answers the phone when you have a technical issue cause your phone is not doing what it is that it should be doing — o yea, that’s right .. it’s me. You have to take into consideration as well, for a customer to call the company just once …. it costs $7.00 for that initial phone call, now what if you need to be transfered (?), then that’s $14.00. There is more to this equation that folks think.

    Now, this is what gets me that FOLKS DON’T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND. CELLULAR SIGNAL IS A RADIO WAVE. It cannot travel through concrete, it cannot travel through steel, or anything else that you want it to go through. If you want the stuff to be guaranteed to work INDOORS, get yourself a landline phone and stop complaining!

    I can honestly say, after working for Sprint, ATT Wireless (back in the day), Cingular, and back to ATT — working at T-Mobile, is the only company out of those providers that I can honestly say listens to the customer. Why do you think it is that we win back to back JD Power awards? Every service provider provides the same thing, cell signal. But the customer service experience is different with T-Mobile than with anyone else.

      Excellent point there sir! I too was a T-Mo Employee up until August of this year. Saddly I left due to a conflict with a supervisor who was not doing what they should be doing and after almost 5 yrs with the company I made the discision to leave. However you are absolutely correct in what you said and I agree that we(T-Mobile) do listen to our customers a lot, it is just so hard to make people understand. It is easily outlined in the contract that they sign assuming they go with even more and not even more plus. That it is a radio wave and that there will be some places where there will be no signal.

      Thank you once again for stating such valid points and I look forward to see what the new year brings us from the fastest mobile web in the U.S!

      I work in a building thats concrete/steel and all my coworkers Sprint, Verizon and AT&T phones all work just fine w/nothing less than a 3G connection. But not my Nexus One on T-Mobile. Outside the building I have an HSPA connection. Once inside the building I drop down to EDGE but I might as well have no connection because data just doesn’t work at all. So I guess some carriers radio waves are better than others. LOL!

    Please Tmo pick up some nice hardware, get away from those Clique esq looking phones. Think more along the lines of the LG optimus. Your all grown up now, no more baby looking phones.

    I wish we could get the iPhone!!!!! I’m pretty sick of these phone wars between carriers!! If we had a NO Competetion law here in the US, we as consumers wouldn’t be screwed when it comes to using the phone we want and the carrier we want to use it with!!!!!
