Despite the news of AT&T purchasing T-Mobile, T-Mobile has not stopped announcing new products and services here at CTIA 2011. To go along with the new 42Mbps HSPA+ networks in New York and other cities, T-Mobile has introduced a few new broadband products to take advantage of the higher speeds.
The T-Mobile Rocket 3.0 is the first device capable of achieving the 42Mbps speeds that the new network offers. Manufactured by ZTE, the Rocket 3.0 is a USB laptop stick and will be available this spring.
T-Mobile is also introducing the 21Mbps-capable 4G Mobile Hotspot, also built by ZTE. The 4G Mobile Hotspot can connect up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices at one time. There are two other USB laptop sticks that T-Mobile is bringing out that work with the 21Mbps speed level: the T-Mobile Jet 2.0 and the pre-paid T-Mobile Rocket 4G.
The Jet 2.0 is expected to show up March 23, while the other products will be available this spring. Pricing has yet to be announced.
