T-Mobile Commits to 4G Tablet in 2011

As we head into the new year and begin talking about all the wonderful smart phones and tablets in store for consumers.  With CES, Mobile World Congress, and CTIA kicking off 2011, we’re going to see plenty of announcements from the various handset makers and carriers.  One such carrier, T-Mobile, has committed to a 4G tablet in the coming year.  We just received an official statement from the provider.

T-Mobile is working closely with the majority of our OEM partners to deliver 4G products by integrating HSPA+ into roadmaps in 2011 as the dominant global standard.  Consumers will continue to see HSPA+ fuel future innovation in a variety of mobile consumer electronics from smartphones and tablets to emerging devices. T-Mobile will continue to be at the forefront of wireless innovation, delivering an aggressive 4G product lineup in 2011, including 4G tablets.”

We are going to go out on a limb here and guess the first one will be an HTC tablet running Android.  Based on the relationships between all parties involved, we’d be surprised if it was anything else.  Anyone holding off until they can get their hands on a tablet with HSPA+ support?
