T-Mobile To Release New Android Phone

Posted by at 3:35 pm on June 22, 2009

T-Mobile has announced the release of their next generation Android based phone, the MyTouch 3G.   Based on the HTC Magic , released in Europe earlier this year, the MyTouch will be the second phone in T-Mobile’s Android line-up, joining the G1 that was released in October of 2008.

Like it’s predecessor, the my touch still has the same display (3.2 inches, 320 by 480 pixels), 3G radio (HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA 2 Mbps), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (with A2DP) and 192MB RAM / 256MB ROM.   It also retains the same 3.1 megapixel camera.   Other items missing from the G! that are still not included in the My Touch are a flash for the camera and a standard 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack.

There are a few additions to the MyTouch, most notably a slimmer form factor that lacks a physical keyboard.   It features a greatly improved battery life with 420 hours of stand-by time (from 406 on the G1) and up to 7h 30min of talk time.   Official Exchange support should prove to be a welcome addition for business users.   It will be available in two new colors, merlot and black.

T-Mobile will begin taking pre-orders on July 8, for expected delivery in late July.   Nationwide retail availibility is expected to occur in mid-August.   The listed price is $199 and will include a 4GB microSD memory card.
