HD2 and webConnect Rocket get special T-Mo models

T-Mobile today outlined its plans for two high-end 3G devices due to reach its network next month. The webConnect Rocket will be the US carrier's first 3G modem to take advantage of its new HSPA+ network. In the areas where it's supported, the USB adapter will have the option of up to 21Mbps downstream with 5.76Mbps up; in practice, HSPA+ networks usually deliver closer to 7Mbps down and over 2.5Mbps up.

The stick will have a microSDHC slot to double as storage and will work with both Mac OS X and Windows PCs. T-Mobile doesn't have pricing but expects the Rocket to ship next month.

Extra details have also been supplied for T-Mobile's version of the HTC HD2. While its main difference from the original is native 3G, the first American model will have Barnes & Noble's e-book app and video apps from Blockbuster and MobiTV preloaded. It will also come preloaded with both live-action Transformers movies preloaded and half a year of free airline Wi-Fi from those carriers that use Gogo.

The 4.3-inch, Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone is only set to be available "this spring" but is widely expected to be ready as soon as March.

    it's really nice phone

    I just baught my HD2 about an hour ago. Love what I see, and looking forward to getting my hands on the rom side of it.

    I begin using windows mobile starting with the T-Mobile Shadow. That was wehn I first learned about Windows Mobile. As I was a computer technician then, and still am, I soon began to work on making the Shadow's rom better for all users. I created themes mainly, and am still the only themer for the 6.5 ROM that has been put onto the Shadow.

    I then got the LG Incite, and started off by making themes. I quickly began to learn how to do more however, and a few months ago I began to create ROMs for the Incite. My Incite rom is currently one of the most stable Incite ROMs. I am currently developing another incite ROM based off my first, but this time with more resources and customizations.

    I have been a computer technician for over 4 years now, that is just the professional side of my skills. Before the pro side computer modding and hacking was just a hobby I did that became very helpful when trying to get past security features at the high school.
    I love windows mobile and look forward to getting to know you all, and be a bennefit to the community.

    BTW, I came across it's a must see for HD2 owners.
