T-Mobile today posted a teaser site announcing the upcoming T-Mobile G2, which the carrier said would be its first HSPA+ handset. With few details available, T-Mobile only says that the phone will run at 4G speeds, T-Mobile's wording for its HSPA+ performance, which is comparable to Sprint's 4G branded WiMAX network, and that more information will be available in the coming weeks. On its Twitter feed, T-Mobile has also said current owners will have the first opportunity to buy the new device.

4G? Umm...not according to the ITU's definition of 4G speeds

According to the ITU 4G speed is 100mb/s. 5yrs from now we probably still won't have true 4G speeds.

Besides with Tmo what's the point in having speed if you can't watch videos on a laptop? Videos rack up data, Tmo has data limits.

Speed only makes sense with Sprint/Clear cause you can actually use it for what its designed for.
At this point, 4G has become nothing more than marketing term thanks to Sprint. And as Phonescoop even tested themselves, T-Mobile's data does exceed Sprint's "4G" speed in the new HSDPA+ areas.
IT does not mention it is a 4G phone. It mentioned a comparable speed boost which can be likable to those theoretical speeds.
