Mystery HSPA+ Device Gets Teased on T-Mobile Webpage
T-Mobile has made it no secret that the carrier intends on launching a smartphone compatible on its HSPA+ network. Now, T-Mobile USA has put up a teaser page that shows an outline of a device that will be the first phone to take full advantage of HSPA+ 21 Mbps speeds of T-Mobile’s 3G network. The source code of the page reveals the name “Vanguard,” which many believe is another codename for the HTC Vision phone.
Though not much details are given, there had been plenty of rumors that HTC and T-Mobile will be releasing a smartphone for the 3G AWS network that aims to promise 4G speeds and the webpage may be just another indication that the HTC Vision will be landing soon on T-Mobile.
The HTC Vision/Vanguard/G1 Blaze was recently also spotted with T-Mobile’s branding. The device is said to be arriving in Europe as part of the HTC Vision code name while the US code name will be the Vanguard. T-Mobile USA may release the device as the G1 Blaze if rumors are true, an homage to the original G1, which has just been recently retired from sales this week.
