LG G-Slate, Dell Streak 7, Vibrant 4G Release Dates Confirmed

So this is the very first look we’ve had at the LG G-Slate release date which looks to be dropping on March 23rd, a date which jives with our late March info from before. Not to be outdone is the Dell Streak 7 which will release on February 2nd which also coincides with earlier info. More important though is the anticipated price of $299.99 (after unknown rebate) which was said to be “competitive” by T-Mobile CTO Cole Brodman during the CES press event. Last, but not least, is the Samsung Vibrant 4G, which drops February 23rd which again coincides with earlier info. Seems like previous release date rumors were right on the money. The only thing left now is the Sidekick 4G release date…

    will t-mobile get the galaxy S 2 ? Does anyone know?

    • jcj

      that is the vibrant 4G, so yes and is listed as 2/23 release. galaxy S is a line not a phone in the USA

      • Flyingrequin

        incorrect — the galaxy S2 is NOT the vibrant 4G. This will be a different phone probably launch late summer.

      Ummm, who is finding unemployment because of this site? If anything, the buzz I help create stirs up more sales for them as I allow for anticipation of new products and services. With ease I could find you dozens if not hundreds of comments that show TmoNews is single-handedly responsible for keeping customers on T-Mobile based on the news we’ve previewed.

      • Mtnman

        I would agree with you David. Just today as a matter of fact my co-worker and I both have a Vibrant. She seen that mine is updated to Froyo 2.2 and she wondered how I got it and she didn’t. I told her that I check TMO news daily and that’s how I found out, and how to do it. I upgraded her phone on my lunch break. She was thinking of leaving T-Mobile until she seen all the new things her phone could do. So in essence, you saved a customer.

    As usual, T-Mobile is gonna not do the correct thing and put out a 4.3in Android HTC phone with front facing camera but put out that garbagely buggy Samsung junk and a bunch of tablets. Everybody is not a Tablet-Slate lover (especially with the price for data). Furthermore, they obviously choose not to compete with the iPhone (which Verizon will demolish At&t by taking their customers, finally).

  • Blue

    Lastly, Windows 7 phones are TRASH!!!!! So T-mobile needs to jump off that bandwagon quick. I know what the real sales figures are, and for Tmo it is a bust on Win7

  • http://www.dolphinfree.net Tenkely

    Really wanting that G-Slate… but, if it T-Mobile effs it up with some custom UI shenanigans I will not be getting one. Look at the custom version of HTC Sense T-Mobile slapped on the Slide 3&4G, it’s awful, tons of bloatware and bundled apps, Facebook for MyTouch, Peep, even the contacts are confusing to some (what account am I saving this to?). T-Mobile should be carving itself out as the vanilla Android provider. They would get big wins with that.

    “The only thing left now is the Sidekick 4G release date…” Really?! What about the LG optimus x2? this was supposed to be the first dual core phone. The Atrix is coming out Feb. 13th on AT&T. Why doesn’t anyone have news on the x2?

  • Nosuchthingas4gonTMO

    why is everyone focused on 21 or 42M? You cant get more than 4 with a 2.0 air card
    I tested the m4g and g2 and they max at 4. This was witnessed by a TMO store manage who confided that he never sees 4 outside the store.

    The technical support is a joke. I would love to see a consistent 5!

    • Chatter

      I have received 5M+ in various parts of Cali, NY state and DC (traveling, don’t live in all these places!) so your store manager is probably only referring to the area around you. MT4G.

      We consistently get 5-6 M-bps on our Vibrants in our home!

      • Nosuchthingas4gonTMO

        I finally got in touch with an honest tech rep. Turns out 3G for tmobile can go as high as 8. If you are in a marginal 4g zone your speed will drop.

        Here is the kicker: 4G is presently defined as 1-14.4. So you are compliant anywhere in that spectrum. This is critical when selecting a phone. I may be sending back my aircard as she admitted this was not clearly stated in the contract.

        So, if you are waiting, like I am, for the LG, think hard if you do not have true H+. My suggestion, test one in the store before you buy.

        Thats why Vibrant owners can see 6+M. She admitted that the Galaxy S will run at the SAME speeds in my area of FLA under the current provisioning.

        David, you should look into this.

        I have a trouble ticket into the engineers and if anyone is interested will report back.

        Let me know!!!!

        • chris

          dude, do you even know how networks work?

          maybe you should learn about networks first before you complain about network speeds…

          here’s a little tip:

          network speeds depend on:
          1) how much bandwidth the network has
          2) how much people are currently downloading/uploading/transferring files – basically using the said network
          3) how far are you from the current cell tower
          4) are there any physical stuff that can block these waves coming from the tower
          5) are there any noise present
          6) how is your phone in terms of processing these data that are coming in from the network – meaning how is it handling the data ( is it processing it at a fast speed, is downloading the only thing your doing and nothing else, etc.)

          so before you complain about network speeds try to think about these stuff.

          also, 21 Mbps is a theoretical speed. technically means, you can possibly reach that high in the current network. but that doesn’t mean everyone is getting that speed (like i said, look above for reasons). it means, you can have from 1 Mbps to 21 Mbps at any given time.

          like seriously man, stop complaining about the damn network.

          If it doesn’t work for you, go to another carrier! try their network ( maybe it’ll work, maybe it’ll be the same freaking thing!) network is just like it says a network.

        • Aerofanbig

          People, pay attention to that last line Chris wrote….go to another carrier and maybe it’ll work…maybe not! Verizon loves to pull the wool over peoples eyes by claiming how ungodly fast their new network is….but, its being used by a few dozen people at most right now, who are engineers…there are not millions of customers on it LOL. Wait till people get LTE capable phones and their network won’t be any faster then ours.
