t-mobile-mytouch-3g.jpgAs expected last month, T-Mobile has officially launched the new MyTouch 3G Android Phone, making this the carriers' second handset to use Google's open source operating system since the G1.

Unlike the G1, which was also made by HTC, myTouch 3G will lack a physical keyboard, making it much slimmer. Main features include: 3.2" HVGA capacitive touch screen, 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and YouTube and Picasa uploading support, Microsoft Exchange support, which the G1 lacks, MicroSD card slot with a 4GB card included, quad-band EDGE, UMTS/HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS.

So as you can see, hardware-wise, there are not many improvements to the device and the Android 1.5 OS will be pretty much the same, so T-Mobile will try emphasize on the only new feature it has, which is the ability to buy custom cases. Exciting...

The T-Mobile MyTouch 3G is available for pre-order right now for existing T-Mobile customers for $199 with a 2-year contract extension. The pre-orders will start shipping on July 28, while the rest of you will have to wait until the public launch, which will happen around August 5th.

"Unlike the G1, which was also made by HTC, myTouch 3G will lack a physical keyboard..."
