T-Mobile and HTC have once again collaborated to announce their second HSPA+ handset, the MyTouch, a high-end version of myTouch 3G and myTouch 3G slide. Compared to its predecessors, myTouch has improved its specifications in every aspect and could be one of the best sellers for T-Mobile USA.
The plasticky feel of the handset reminiscent of earlier myTouch series is long gone as the myTouch (also known as myTouch HD) is fully metal thus improving its aesthetic appeal.
In terms of hardware specifications, the phone gets a jumpstart with a 1Ghz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor, HSPA+ 14.4Mbps networking, Android 2.2 Froyo OS, HTC Sense, a 5MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front facing camera for video conferencing. In fact, the myTouch is one of the very first T-Mobile phone to come with a pre-loaded video chat feature that works either over HSPA+ or Wi-Fi.
Furthermore, the interface of the myTouch has been tweaked to encompass a larger 3.8", 800x480 resolution screen with SWYPE text input for easier text messaging.
The phone also includes a "Genius button" for handsfree calling and messaging and a T-Mobile TV to stream in the latest broadcasts.
There's no know-how as when the T-Mobile myTouch will be available and how much, but rumours blurt out a $200 on-contract pricing.
