T-Mobile is working fast and furious to expand it’s current 4G footprint (even if that footprint will only be around for a limited time) with the announcement of the T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot. Enabling customers to “extend the power of America’s Largest 4G Network” to (up to 5) any Wi-Fi enabled devices. The T-Mobile 4G Mobile Hotspot can be used to power music players, tablets, laptops and so much more. Manufactured by the ZTE corporation, the 21 HSPA+ capable device resembles a clamshell phone and fits in the palm of your hand.
Beginning later this Spring, T-Mobile will only sell 4G capable laptop sticks from prepaid to premium devices. The T-Mobile Rocket 3.0 will be the first 42 Mbps device capable of taking advantages of T-Mobile’s new 42 HSPA+ network.

T-Mobile will also deliver two additional laptop sticks capable of delivering speeds of 21 Mbps including the T-Mobile Jet 2.0 (available March 23rd) and the prepaid T-Mobile Rocket 4G.
