First T-Mobile USA 3G device may be coming in September

I've been with T-Mobile for over 5 years now and was patiently waiting for them to roll out 3G when I decided that the iPhone was enough to take me over to AT&T where I could get a 3G SIM to use on devices like the HTC TyTN and HTC Advantage. I just read the news on The Boy Genius Report that the first 3G mobile phone from T-Mobile USA may be coming in September. The 3G network may not be activated at that time, but the 1700 MHz UMTS network should already be in place and ready to go. The Samsung t639 looks like a decent clamshell feature phone, but wouldn't be something I would personally purchase. I am still pleased with my AT&T data service because I am seeing 3.5G speeds with HSDPA on both the TyTN and evaluation Advantage right now and the UMTS network that T-Mobile will be coming out with generally sees speeds less than half of what HSDPA brings to you.
