T-Mobile to make bold moves July 10

The carrier has issued invitations for a July 10 event in New York City where it promises its boldest moves yet.

T-Mobile issued invitations today for a media event in New York City on July 10.

Exactly what the carrier has in store for the shindig remains a mystery, but T-Mobile promises that it will deliver its "boldest moves yet." It all begins at 11:30 a.m. PT.

Of course, a flashy new handset (or handsets) is a big possibility, with the Sony Xperia Z as the most likely star. Remember that last week, CNET's Roger Cheng reported that T-Mobile had confirmed that the Xperia Z would go on sale "in the coming weeks."

The Xperia Z, which made its debut at CES back in January, has a waterproof design and brings respectable features like a a 5-inch 1080p high-definition "Reality Display" with a mobile Bravia engine, a 13-megapixel camera, a "Stamina" mode to stretch out the battery life, and support for T-Mobile HSPA+ and 4G LTE networks. Still, it's unlikely that T-Mobile would refer to just one new phone, especially a handset that's six months old, as its boldest move.

Indeed, T-Mobile already made a few bold moves this year, like switching completely to no-contract service plans, activating an LTE network, and adding the iPhone 5 to its lineup. Perhaps, then, we'll hear more about the first two initiatives as currently, T-Mobile lags far behind its national carrier rivals in switching on LTE markets.

With T-Mobile's event, the second week of July is shaping up to be a big week for tech in New York. Nokia has already scheduled a "Zoom" event for the next day, July 11, which we expect will center on a new high-end smartphone camera.

Whatever happens, though, CNET will be there. Maybe Carly is coming back?
