T-Mobile just announced the official launch of their new 4G LTE network, and customers will have six devices to choose from, one of which is a new LTE hotspot. Customers will have their shot at the Samsung GALAXY S 4, Galaxy Note II, BlackBerry Z10, HTC One, iPhone 5 (announcement here), and the Sonic 2.0 Mobile HotSpot LTE.
The GALAXY S 4 is the newest smartphone to be announced, and T-Mobile will have it available starting in May, with CEO Legere mentioning "about May 1." However, pricing hasn't been announced yet. The BlackBerry Z10, on the other hand, is available starting today. It'll cost you a total of $531, but it'll be split up over 24 months with $18 payments per month, and a $99 down payment at the start.
The HTC One will also be hitting T-Mobile "later this spring." The carrier hasn't announced pricing or availability, though. The HTC One was announced last month, and it pretty much stunned us with its 4.7-inch 1080p display and the new "UltraPixel" camera technology, not to mention its beautiful metal design.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II is already available on T-Mobile, but customers can update the device via an over-the-air update to enable the LTE chip for the network. If you don't yet have a Galaxy Note II, you can grab one for $29 down, and $16 monthly payments for 24 months. As for T-Mobile's new hotspot, the Sonic 2.0 Mobile HotSpot LTE supports up to eight devices and is available for $29 down with 24 monthly payments of $5. The device is available now.
