T-Mobile’s leaked phone roadmap for 2011 has plenty of good news for Android and Blackberry fans, but no mention of Windows Phones or the iPhone.

You can check out the entire roadmap at This is My Next, including a bunch of unremarkable feature phones and dumbphones. Here are the hightlights:

June will likely bring HTC’s Sensation 4G, a powerful smartphone with a 4.3-inch screen and dual-core processor. We may also see an upper-midrange Samsung smartphone called the Exhibit 4G.

July may see the launch of HTC’s “Doubleshot,” which will probably be dubbed the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide. This sequel to the MyTouch 3G Slide will reportedly include a 3.7-inch screen, dual-core processor and 8-megapixel camera. The Android love continues in July with the HTC “Marvel,” a mid-range phone with a 3.2-inch screen.

Blackberry gets its time to shine in July and August, says the leaked roadmap. First comes a full touch screen phone codenamed “Monza,” with a 3.7-inch display, 1.2 GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera and the Blackberry 7 operating system. After that, Research in Motion will launch the Blackberry Bold Touch, a touch screen revamp of the classic smartphone that’s also the thinnest Blackberry yet.

September may bring yet another Android smartphone in the Samsung “Hercules,” with a 4.5-inch screen. It’s probably just T-Mobile’s version of the AT&T Infuse 4G, which launched this week.

Beyond that, it gets a little murky. LG is reportedly working on two phones called the Maxx and Maxx Q for November, and we may see an update to LG’s Optimus T at an unknown date.  The roadmap also mentions the “G-Infinity,” which could be anything but will likely be one of T-Mobile’s flagship phones.

As for the iPhone, I wouldn’t expect to see it on the roadmap even if it was coming to T-Mobile, as rumors suggest. When people were speculating about the Verizon iPhone least year, Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg said his company is “ready to do it, but that’s an Apple decision.” I doubt T-Mobile could confidently put the iPhone on its roadmap.

Windows Phone fans, should be a little worried, but T-Mobile offers lots of Nokia phones, and the promised Nokia Windows Phone 7 handset could be a beauty. We just don’t know when it’ll arrive, or which carriers will get it.
