T-Mobile to Intro Windows 3G/Wi-Fi Phone

By Nancy Gohring

T-Mobile is discussing all of its upcoming data offerings at the 3GSM conference this week: It will offer the same combined 3G/Wi-Fi device that Orange is introducing. Both operators will start selling the Microsoft Windows Mobile device this summer.

T-Mobile also revealed some statistics about customers. It said that in January, customers in the U.S. transmitted more than 10 terabytes of data over T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi networks. T-Mobile plans to have 20,000 hotspots in Europe and the U.S. by the end of this year.

T-Mobile also discussed plans to introduce HSDPA within a year. The company’s chief technology officer compared HSDPA to ADSL, which may offer a hint as to how T-Mobile may market HSDPA. While some operators are looking at the technology as a way to offer a DSL or cable modem replacement service, I’ve talked to at least one analyst who thinks that HSDPA will be best suited to applications based on handheld devices or for filling in the connectivity gaps when customers are on the go. But because of the expense that operators paid for their cellular licenses, it’s unlikely that they could offer a similar price point for HSDPA as the DSL operators can for a similar unlimited Internet access offering in the home.

Given T-Mobile’s announcement that it is using a broadband wireless technology similar to WiMax for an onboard train offering, I wonder if T-Mobile may instead consider WiMax if it is looking for a technology to offer a service that is competitive to DSL or cable mode.
