T-Mobile is set to roll out two new devices that will run on the Google Android platform early next year.
The wireless carrier will introduce a home phone and a tablet computer, both powered by Google's open source mobile operating system.
Confidential documents cited by The New York Times suggest that alongside its current offering of Google Android devices, T-Mobile will a home phone and a small form factor tablet computer that will be powered by Google's mobile OS.
According to the Times, the tablet will "handle basic computing jobs like checking the weather or managing data across a variety of devices in the home." The Android-powered home phone will "plug into a docking station and come with another device that handles data synchronization."
A T-Mobile spokesperson declined to discuss specifics, but confirmed that the carrier was planning several devices based on the OS.
T-Mobile was the first wireless carrier in the world to launch a Google Android phone -- the T-Mobile G1. Despite starting off slowly, Android gained user traction and more mobile phone manufacturers committed to building devices using it.
The wireless carrier will launch the T-Mobile G2, its second version of the Google phone later this year.
