T-Mobile currently only has two phones capable of taking advantage of its HSPA+ "4G" network, the myTouch 4G and the G2, but on Jan 20, T-Mobile and Samsung announced "Galaxy S 4G," which could be the next 4G smartphone T-Mobile will offer.

As per the announcement, Galaxy S 4G will actually be the first smartphone it offers capable of the network's theoretical 21 Mbps peak downlink speed. T-Mobile has rolled out its 4G network capable of these speeds in approximately 100 major metropolitan areas, and completed its overall network upgrade at the end of 2010.

At CES 2011, however, T-Mobile USA CEO and President Phillipp Humm announced the company's plans to double the speed of its HSPA+ network to a theoretical maximum of 42 Mbps.

T-Mobile today didn't announce pricing or availability for the Galaxy S 4G.
