T-Mobile today took the wraps off its long-awaited LTE network, launching in seven metro areas. There are three Android smartphones that will take advantage of the higher-speed 4G data. They are the Samsung Galaxy S4, Note 2, and the HTC One. (BlackBerry's Z10 also rocks T-Mobile LTE.) The Galaxy Note 2 is available now; the HTC One and Galaxy S4 are expected in April.
The seven cities in which T-Mobile now has LTE data are:
- Kansas City
- Las Vegas
- San Jose, Calif.
- Washington, D.C.
That's just the start, of course. T-Mobile didn't announce any future plans, but says it expects to "reach" 100 million people in the U.S. by mid-year, and 200 million by 2014. Those are potential subscribers, meaning more LTE-enabled cities.
