As predicted: T-Mobile launches 3G in NYC

Following consistent reports last week, T-Mobile USA has commercially launched its 3G UMTS/HSDPA network in New York City. The carrier, however, noted that the service will support both voice and data services, despite the rumors that the initial launch would not support data. By the end of 2008, T-Mobile USA plans to rollout its network in major cities across the U.S. The carrier also announced plans to launch its first HSDPA device in the coming months.

Reports last week, which pulled from a leaked memo from the carrier, claim that upcoming market launches include: Los Angeles, Detroit, San Diego, Austin, Las Vegas, Minneapolis and Miami. Expect more details on the 3G launch this Thursday when T-Mobile USA's parent company reports on its quarterly earnings.
