At Mobilize 2011, T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 4G network, Cole Brodman, CMO and EVP at T-Mobile USA, announced the availability of two new premium Android handsets for T-Mobile, the ubiquitous Samsung Galaxy S2, and the HTC Amaze 4G.
As you may have noticed, there are different versions of the Galaxy S2 for almost every carrier; T-Mobile is no different.
T-Mobile’s version has a 4.52″ Super AMOLED screen (largest smartphone screen of T-Mobile’s offerings), and a 1.5 GHz, dual-core processor. T-Mobile is touting Netflix, however, the Netflix app should be supported now for any Android phone running 2.3.
The HTC Amaze 4G is touted for its great 8MP still camera and HD 1080p video recording. Cole Brodman also talked up the new SmartShot feature that rapidly takes 5 photos in succession then automagically combines the photos so that everyone in the shot looks good, avoiding the problem where one or two people blinked, or weren’t quite smiling when the shot was taken.
Of course both devices will support T-Mobile’s brand of HSPA+. When asked by Om Malik whether T-Mobile would be moving to LTE for 4G, Brodman said that they plan to in the future, but in the near term, for at least the next couple years, T-Mobile will remain on the HSPA+ bandwagon.
