Tip of the hat to the boys at This is my next as they just scored what they believe is a 2011 device lineup for T-Mobile. I guess the Samsung Hercules was just the tip of the iceberg for them today as they’ve uncovered some of the blanks we’ve been searching for ourselves through the end of 2011. We’re going to follow their lead and do a month by month breakdown so let’s get to it!
June: Sensation 4G, T499 Tass T379 Triumph
- We’ve already been able to nail down the June 8th release of the HTC Sensation 4G, Samsung Exhibit 4G and Samsung Gravity Touch 2 or GT2. We’re also expecting T-Mobile’s first 42Mbps HSPA+ mobile hotspot properly known as the Huawei E587 but better known by its codename “Wayne.”
- One week later on June 15th comes the arrival of the Samsung T499 “Tass,” which is possibly the long rumored Galaxy S Mini possibly arriving as the Galaxy Suit. June 29th brings yet another low end arrival in the Samsung T379 “Triumph” which is likely billed at the Gravity 4. Expectations for the Gravity 4 are low as it’s billed as a refreshed version of the Gravity 3.
July: myTouch 4G Slide, Marvel and Monza
- The HTC Doubleshot is hardly a secret codename around TmoNews or as it will properly be known: the myTouch 4G Slide. The expectation is the myTouch 4G Slide will launch July 6th as expected. Then we have the HTC Marvel which we’ve previously discussed as the T-Mobile branded Wildfire S. This will be a mid-range device with a 3.2″ display and an 800MHz processor.
- The Blackberry “Monza” which we’ve previously target for a June 29th date has slipped a month and is now expected to hit store shelves July 29th. This is the long expected full touchscreen Blackberry with an HSPA+ radio of 14.4Mbps, 3.7″ 480 x 800 display, 1.2GHz single-core Snapdragon processor, 5 megapixel camera with 720p video capture and Blackberry 7. Expect to see this one arrive under $200 on contract.
August: Bold Touch, Apollo and Huawei S7
- August is the month Blackberry activists have long waited for with the launch of the Bold 9900 Touch on August 17th. The “Apollo,” previously known as the next generation Blackberry Curve will arrive August 31st.
- Huawei is looking to enter the T-Mobile tablet space this August with the arrival of the Huawei S7, an Android WiFi powered tablet which will be found at your local Best Buy. Coming in a WiFi trim only at Best Buy the T-Mobile branded version will feature an HSPA+ radio.
September: Hercules, Flip II and Nuron 4G
- The greek demigod Samsung Hercules arrives just in time for an end of September launch on September 26th.
- Arriving a little earlier in September comes the LG “Flip II” on the 14th which we really don’t know anything else about. Thisismynext suggests a possible replacement for the LG dLite but other than that we’re drawing a blank.
- Nokia fans T-Mobile hasn’t forgotten about yo with the arrival of the Nokia “Panda” on September 21st. The Nokia “Panda” which if you can really believe is the retail name of the Nokia Nuron 4G. The Panda will launch under $150 with 14.4 HSPA+, 3.2″ 360 x 640 display, 5 megapixel camera, WiFi and Symbian 3.1.
October and beyond:
- LG has two more devices called the Maxx and Maxx Q with the latter being described as the QWERTY keyboard version. Both phones are expected to launch November 2nd but beyond the names we’re not sure on any other details.
- The Huawei U2805 is a likely HSPA+ capable phone, possibly a Comet replacement.
- The Samsung “Jamong” is a simple flip with a 1.3 megapixel camera and 3G! This one is a possible prepay exclusive.
- The Samsung “Dumont” is one to keep an eye on though we don’t know anything about it.
- The LG “Gelato” is the successor the Optimus T as the Optimus II. That’s a guess based on the notion that 2011 will be too soon to look for G2x replacement.
- HTC’s got two phones in here to keep an eye on, the “Bresson” and the “G-Infinity.” Thisismynext suggests the G-Infinity could be the next model for the T-Mobile G-Series of devices that currently serves the G2 and G2x. The Unfortunately we don’t know much about any of these devices but again, names to watch out for.
