The folks over at TmoNews recently got their hands on some internal documents stating T-Mobile’s plans on how they are going to market the G-Slate. Apparently they’ve got the legal approval to tell customers that the G-Slate is more than “2x faster than the iPad 2 on AT&T and Verizon, and over 3x faster than the Motorola Xoom”.
While the statements are inherently true right now (T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42Mbps network is faster than Verizon’s or AT&T’s 3G), what happens when Verizon gets the Xoom upgraded to LTE? The G-Slate is only capable of HSPA+ 14.4Mbps and Verizon’s LTE upgrade will make the Xoom much faster than the G-Slate. Unless of course, this is only a temporary marketing strategy, which they will amend after the Xoom LTE upgrade is released (if it ever gets released). What do you think of T-Mobile’s marketing strategy? Is bragging about having faster network speeds (even if it’s an unfair comparison) the way to go about it?
