T-Mobile Unveils New MyTouch with HSPA+

T-Mobila USA has revealed the new myTouch, which features an HSPA+ radio for 4G-like speeds, a front-facing camera for video chat, and Google Android 2.2 (FroYo). Here are a bunch of goodies from the press release:

Designed by HTC exclusively for T-Mobile, the new myTouch features a brilliant 3.8-inch WVGA touch-screen display with virtual keyboard and Swype for easy text input.The thin and sleek device also comes with a blazing fast second-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz MSM8255 processor optimized for speed and graphic performance, a 5-megapixel camera, a preinstalled 8 GB microSD memory card, and an integrated media player that brings together favorite music, video and internet radio under one set of controls.

My initial thoughts on the phone are kind of meh. I love that it has the second-gen Qualcomm chip and a front-facing camera, but I don’t like the plastic look of the myTouch and I really don’t like the Espress version of HTC Sense found on recent myTouch models. I rather have the G2’s metal body and 800MHz processor running vanilla-ish Android.

Then again, I wasn’t really impressed with the G2 when it was first announced. Much to my surprise it has become one of my favorite Android phones of the year. There’s a chance that the myTouch will change my mind when it’s released (though I doubt it). If you want early notification from T-Mo on the upcoming myTouch then sign up here.
