Hate to say it, but I'm not really surprised.
T-Mobile has generally been last out of the top 4 US carriers to get new phones.
Still, even if it is the LTE version, that doesn't mean they have to wait that long to release it because even when they do start having LTE in a few cities and launch on March 27, there will still be a TON of cities that don't have it.
In fact, I'd rather they just sell the LTE version if they don't have LTE at the moment. This obviously didn't not stop SGS3 owners from switching to prepaid T-Mobile 4G.

What I really hope for with T-Mobile is that the phone is not overpriced like with the 9900.
The 9900 was 299.99 AFTER a 50 dollar mail in rebate with new contract and upgrade. So upfront the phone was a little over 400 dollars.
The phone would need to be competitive with the S3, NOTE 2, and HTC ONE-S on tmobile to even have a chance.

The world is filled with people that fell for marketing. There is a reason Verizon feels the need to slap "4G LTE" in big font on all of their LTE phones. Its to continue to pushing the hype machine and make people think they need 4G LTE. Crazy, but I don't remember seeing phones with "Verizon 3G" branded on them. Lol
In my area verizon LTE = 8 to 11 mbps. My Nexus 4 on T-Mobile's non LTE network = 14 to 17 Mbps consistently.
I personally don't see a need for LTE and would rather have a hspa+ device and better battery life. But marketing dollars are hard at work trying to convince me that I am wrong about that. Lol

Those slides "leaked" today, stating late February and late March for the release of the "BB10 device"... We all saw what an "analyst" made to the RIMM stock by saying that BB10 phones would release by March 2013. Everyone believed him and the stock dropped a lot. "
Now, tying this with today's stock manipulation attempt downgrading RIMM, I believe those slides with the March date were just the plan B of the guy responsible for the drop attempt to make the stock fall one way or the other.
Or perhaps T-Mo is actually releasing the phones 03/28/2013...

Ok hold on, let's assume this leak is fact, that means that z10 will be fully launched (meaning all phones are released on major carriers) around April. However, April/March is when T-mobile is speculated to release/announce the iPhone 4/5. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is being announced at this time as well. So with z10 coming to T-mobile with rising hype of the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5 I wonder how this will pan out.
edit: Also, BB Aristo is coming this year meaning z10 will be obsolete by the end of this year leaving z10 8months on store shelves before being pushed aside for another $700 RIM phone.

Re: T-MO release date reported as March 27, 2013
They just better hurry up because I've been whoring myself around on other OS' s til it comes out. WP8 is pretty good, and my android is killing me

It's coming. That's what everyone wanted. Now we're crying about the release date.
I can understand that, because I've waited for this phone like everyone else for ages. Is two months really too much to ask for? I'm perfectly happy with my 9900. Most android phones are pretty but also pretty useless when you are trying to get sh!t done. Windows Phone 8 is nice but pretty basic, still a young platform.
My point is this: It's coming. Don't be greedy. We'll all be saying come April that "this was SO worth the wait."

Re: T-MO release date reported as March 27, 2013
Granted this is all rumors and heresay.. And perhaps T-Mo will be the last carrier to get it. Who knows.. However I hope for RIMS sake that at least 1 American carrier gets this device out well before March.. Or it'll be a blood bath in the media..
