HSPA+ is T-Mobile's stop-gap between 3G and 4G. IntoMobile reports that a T-Mo spokesman has confirmed for them that September will see the launch of the first HSPA+ smartphone. It will run Android and be made by HTC.

In theory, HSPA+ will be able to hit speeds of 10 megabits per second. That's unlikely to ever be seen in practice, but it is possible that this will prove to be speedier than the current WiMax technology. Here's hoping HTC manages to put together a phone impressive enough to fully exploit that kind of speed.
