T-Mobile Jet 2.0 4G modem tipped for March 23

A leak late Tuesday gave out one of T-Mobile's plans for the CTIA phone show next week. Backing earlier rumors of the Kitty Hawk, the Jet 2.0 4G would provide a 21Mbps HSPA+ 3G connection for budget-minded travelers. TmoNews' copy doesn't mention most details but expects it to ship on March 23, likely the same day it's made public.

If the same as the Kitty Hawk, it should be a cross-platform modem with Mac and Windows PC support. A microSDHC slot (seen in the leak) was expected. The low-price nature will mostly stem from frequency support, since the Jet 2.0 4G should be limited primarily to the US for 3G. A 42Mbps modem possibly arriving at the same time would have international frequencies for world roaming.

Other T-Mobile plans for CTIA haven't been mentioned, but the Orlando event should mark the official release for the G-Slate (Optimus Pad) after several weeks of teasers.
