T-Mobile gets 3G… kinda

If you live in New York City, you can now waltz into a T-Mobile store and score Samsung’s 3G-enabled SGH-T639 handset. Great, so that means that T-Mobile finally has their long-awaited 3G network up and running…right? Wrong. Though the SGH-T639’s main selling point is its 3G radio, T-Mobile has yet to make any sort of formal announcement as to when its 3G network goes live. Despite that fact, PhoneScoop reports that the T369 is “the first phone to be compatible with T-Mobile’s 3G network, even though the network is not yet up and running.” At any rate, this snazzy little number knows how to do quad-band GSM/EDGE and WCDMA, so it might not be a bad gamble–seems like T-Mobile could announce its 3G network any day now.
