4G.co.uk have to say that at this stage of their 4G strategy plan, EE ( Everything Everywhere – which owns Orange and T-Mobile ) looks to have performed wonders to amass such an impressive array of 4G Phones, 4G Tablets and 4G mobile devices.
When we first heard months ago, that EE was launching 4G on the 30th October this year, we anticipated just a few 4G phones would be ready to coincide with the 4G launch. However, EE have pulled together a very impressive portfolio and it seems that they have either been somewhat lucky or have worked closely with the 4G phone and tablet manufacturers. We think it’s the latter.
Who could of foreseen that one week prior to the EE4G launch that a 4G enabled iPad mini and a 4G enabled iPad 4 would be ready to complement the launch. Yes, there were rumours galore that the iPad mini would be officially released but the iPad 4 came as a total surprise. Quite frankly it is a masterstroke by EE and we hear at 4G are delighted to acknowledge this. Bravo EE !
The 4G Ready portfolio is impressive to say the least and is confirmed as follows :

Of course, having the 4G phones and tablets ready to go is only half the deal so we need to see that the launch of the 4G network is as well organised as the 4G Ready portfolio of 4G phones, tablets and mobile devices. We will soon find out on the 30th October when 4G officially launches in the UK, at last.
