It's the new line from HP? The "42-Meg?"


Seriously -- Brodman today said the phones "might" have an average download speed of 8 Mbps and "could" hit a peak download speed of 20 Mbps. Neither of which T-Mobile will guarantee in any shape or form. So it's either 42, 20, 8, or whatever. Take your pick.

So T-Mobile USA will have the 42Mbit/s smartphones before they do back at the mother ship in Germany. Deutsche Telekom has rolled out 42Mbit/s to 95 percent of its 3G sites in Germany and the only devices it has for the service are two USB dongles from Huawei and a Samsung tablet. 


It's probably difficult for operators to get their hands on HSPA+ devices when handset makers are launching their efforts at LTE at the moment.

re: T-Mobile Revs Android to 42 Megs


unless i m running torrents on my mobile phone having a speed of 8 mbps looks fine (all mails pushing by, 2 messengers,HQ youtube video). Ok, 42 meg is here, but is it for smartphones? Where is that Big Battery to power 42 meg for even half a day? And if my usage is less why would I take 42 meg.


Looks good for SOHO setups, mobile offices though.

I will believe those throughput when I see it.However,theoretically,it is possible for wireless to have the same throughput,or close to that of their wired brethren,but wireless device has to be very close to the base  station and with good line-of -sight  for that to happen.I get the same throughput from my wireless router fifty feet away on my laptop as when I connect an ethernet cable to it.But the speed varies depending of the kind of wireless card and the CPU of the laptop.My little netbook with an Atom CPU,and my Android phone does that give me the speed that my Macbook core2duo does.

Let's get it straight -- they are NOT 42 Mbps phones, and they never will be. Just because T-Mobile calls them that, doesn't mean we have to repeat their fantasy. But apparently it works since across the board headlines and stories are calling them "42 Mbps phones." But until I see some guarantees -- any guarantees -- from T-Mobile I'm calling them "the potentially faster phones." Not as snappy but more accurate.
