Recently, we told you about Sprint's plan to expand its tablet offerings, including plans to introduce a tablet with WiMAX service sometime next year. Not content to let Sprint steal all the thunder, T-Mobile wants its customers to know it has plans to release a 4G tablet sometime next year as well.

"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," the company said in a statement. "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."

Because T-Mobile and Sprint use different wireless standards, their tablets will also support competing technologies. T-Mobile's tablet will run on HSPA+ while Sprint's tablet will support WiMAX. To date, neither Sprint nor T-Mobile have offered any details concerning the tablets, so OS, price, release date, and manufacturers are still unknown.

Lies, damn lies! I have enough issue with Sprint and Verizon calling their WiMAX and LTE 4G (since nether will meet 4G until the next version), but what T-Mob is calling 4G has no chance of actually ever being 4G.

I'm wondering if someone will decide to sue them for false advertising.

They'll be free if you sell three of your children into slavery and send the wife over to clean their shop's floors once a week for 30 years.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
