T-Mobile CMO Cole Brodman announced on stage today at Mobilize 2011 two new devices that are heading to the T-Mobile network; the HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II.
The Android smartphones are set to become T-Mobile’s first 42Mbps-capable handsets. In terms of specs they both have the same 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor, a NFC radio and they both facilitate mobile payments. 1080p video recording is another feature they both share.
The HTC Amaze is sporting a 4.3-inch qHD screen with 540 x 960 resolution and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera which is the same camera from the myTouch 4G Slide.
The Galaxy S II is also sporting a 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, though has a larger 4.5-inch screen with 800 x 480 resolution. Other specs are pretty much the same as the Epic 4G Touch.
Although the maximum data throughput for these devices is 42Mbps, T-Mobile has stated the average speeds are around 8Mbps with peaks of 20Mbps. Those are still some pretty impressive speeds.
They both go on sale October 10 online and are available to buy in stores two days later on October 12. The HTC Amaze will cost you $259.99, whilst the Galaxy S II will cost $229.99; those prices are after a $50 mail-in rebate and in conjunction with a two-year service agreement.
