One awesome T-Mobile leak isn't good enough for you? Well then, you'll be interested to hear that the folks at This is my next have a second (albeit related) leak for Magenta customers - a roadmap detailing their device releases from now until September of 2011, as well as some glimpses of what we can expect beyond that. Without further ado, let's introduce the devices:

June

  • HTC Sensation 4G, Samsung Exhibit 4G, and Samsung GT2: Admittedly, these won't come as much of a surprise, as their release has already been confirmed. June 8
  • Samsung Galaxy Suit: Originally announced as the Galaxy Mini, T-Mobile will be releasing their own version called the Galaxy Suit, though we don't know how it will differ from the original. It's got a small, approximately 3" 320 x 240 resolution display (hence the "Mini" name) so this is definitely intended as a budget phone. June 15

July

  • MyTouch 4G Slide: Long rumored as the HTC DoubleShot, the QWERTY-packing sequel to the MyTouch 4G will also feature a dual core processor, 3.7" WVGA screen and an 8 megapixel camera. July 6
  • HTC Marvel: A T-Mobile branded Wildfire S may not top the charts in specs, but as a mid-range Android device it can certainly hold its own with an 800 MHz processor and 3.2" display. July 15 

August

  • Huawei S7: If you've never heard of it, we wouldn't blame you - Huawei's S7 tablet, previously only available at Best Buy in a Wi-Fi only model, never made much of splash, due to its low-res display, weak processor, and resistive touchscreen. Unfortunately, for whatever reason T-Mobile has decided to pick this up and stick a new radio in there. This will be on the only Android device T-Mobile launches in the month of August, so hopefully they bump up the specs a little (is asking for Honeycomb too much?).

September

  • Samsung Hercules: If that August release date seemed too far away for you, prepared to be disappointed - T-Mobile's Galaxy S 2/Infuse 4G hybrid won't be available until September 26.

And Beyond

  • LG "Gelato" Optimus II: Considering the Optimus T is just a branded version of LG's Optimus One, it's a safe bet that the Optimus II will be another well-made, budget Android handset, though we don't have any other information at this point.
  • HTC G-Infinity: Despite a complete lack of specs or images, this stills manages to be one of the most exciting phones on this roadmap. As part of T-Mobile's G-series, we know that this phone would run stock Android, and the fact that it's made by HTC is a fanboy's dream. Not to speculate too much, but - flagship Ice Cream Sandwich phone?

The roadmap also includes a few codenames with no information attached whatsoever, not even a release. There's no telling if any of these even run Android, but the possibility is certainly there:

  • HTC "Bresson"
  • Samsung "Dumont"
  • Huawei U2805

    HTC moving to bootlockers is disappointing to say the least. Here's to hoping for a @lggirl superhero powered Nexus icecream samnich at the end of the year!

    The G-Infinity sounds like an incredible device. If it is Ice Cream Sandwich what are the chances of it being also a Quad-Core flagship phone as well?

  • Coco hime

    Wow definitely exciting news for me! I'm one of those people that just can't give up having a physical keyboard on a phone. And was I was going to upgrade my outdated Cliq to a G2 but I've been trying to hold out to see if a dual core keyboard phone would come out. Now I know the wait won't be much more! Here's hoping to the Mytouch 4g slide to be everything I dream of!

    I see the rational of Google trying to spread the Nexus love around when it comes to manufacturers of Nexus devices. But i strongly hope they go back to HTC as the manufacturer of the Next Nexus phone. I don't know how the Nexus S is doing sales wise...but i think some ppl sat out and skipped the Nexus S myself included cz there wasn't much love for sammy as the manufacturer and also a few missing specs. I would think if Google did a survey amongst the key Android manufacturers to see who should make the next Nexus...my guess is HTC will come out the winner hands down. The goal is to make a device that will showcase the future of Android and also by a manufacturer who the Android die hearts and masses hope to see make such a device and with top-notch specs and materials. When i hold my N1 you can definately feel it is a device worth the Nexus moniker even though it is now considered old...heck the N1 is not even 2yrs old. I don't wonna be sitting on the sidelines when the next Nexus device comes out...i am strongly hoping there is a more powerful Sensation like Nexus phone out in the wild under going testing. So hopefuly my next phone will be the new NEXUS (hopefully by HTC) or the HTC SENSATION or some other unknown VANILA ANDROID phone by HTC with Tmo bands. Really i dont know for how long i can resist not buying the Sensation..i will try my utmost to hang on till the official announcement of Ice Cream Sandwich and see which Nexus device come along in tow b4 i take a plunge.
