T-Mobile Rallying Up The Androids To Take On The iPhone 4S

Tmonews has release a major road map that details a bunch of Android handsets coming to the nation’s fourth largest carrier.  Although we weren’t sure back in March it’s now confirmed that T-Mobile will be here, and strong, for the holiday season.  The court case involving the Department of Justice and AT&T isn’t going to court until February 9th.

We’ve heard conflicting reports about the release of the HTC Amaze 4G (Ruby) and the Samsung Hercules (Galaxy S II) however the road map has them coming to T-Mobile October 19th. We’ve heard through T-Mobile, that next week is more like it.

More after the break
An entry level 4G Android device from Huawei is expected on October 19th for just $99. It’s a great value proposition Android device, like the Samsung Exhibit 4G.

The next entry is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 4G HSPA+. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 seems to be the most successful Android 3.x Honeycomb tablet to date. With it’s thin form factor, beautiful screen/display and even the Touchwiz UI, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is towering above the other tablets, although Android tablet numbers as a whole have yet to wow even the biggest of Android enthusiasts.  Coupling the success of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with T-Mobile’s 4G network will be a win to the Android loyal community of users who are customers of T-Mobile.

The LG Maxx and Maxx Qwerty are a pair of Android phones being dubbed “MyTouch”. MyTouch is a T-Mobile signature franchise brand of Android, that until now, have been manufactured exclusively by HTC.  This is an interesting change switching from HTC to LG but both phones promise decent specs at a good price, and one with a slide out keyboard. These two devices are due to come out November 2.

November 2 is also supposed to be the release date for the new HTC Radar 4G now dubbed the HTC Omega.  It’s been officially announced for November 2nd.

Rounding out the list are the Samsung Ancore,  Huawei Tallsome, which Tmonews speculates we will find more about at CTIA next week and the Samsung Robin.  The Samsung Ancore is expected to replace the mid-range affordable Samsung Exhibit 4G. Then there is the Samsung Robin, presumed to be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab plus, a reissue of the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7″ with a superAMOLED screen and Honeycomb to boot.

Hopefully this entire road map will come to fruition.  T-Mobile was left out of the iPhone 4S party and is using Android fire power to attract new customers and continue on, even with their future uncertain.
