A new Breed of myTouch Devices Ready for the Masses
Another year, another set of T-Mobile myTouch smart phones. The myTouch torch has been passed again this year, from LG to Huawei. Huawei will be taking the reins on this year’s myTouch following a long legacy that started at HTC. Rumors of a Huawei made myTouch have been circulation the web-o-sphere for some time now, and just like that, they exist! The juicy details of Huawei’s myTouch series of devices started too emerge from the depths of the internet shortly after the Chinese based telecom company confirmed its plans for a push in the American markets. After the myTouch 3G the myTouch handsets showed up in two flavors of excellence. A sliding variation provided all the text crazed, QWERTY loving messengers, while the myTouch kept it simple with a slate style design. The Huawei versions of the myTouch are no different.
The new myTouch Q, the keyboard variation of the two, was exposed back in March as the Ascend G312 QWERTY and rumored to be hitting tmo as the myTouch Buddy! Luckily for anyone who can’t stand a gimmicky name, the myTouch Q will suffice. The new myTouch and myTouch Q are identical. The only difference between the two variations is the Q is as expected, a bit thicker than its slate styled counterpart. But components, design and specs the two are like peas’ in a pod. So what can we expect from the latest in myTouch? Actually, what you should expect. The two new myTouch handsets will run Android 2.3 with a custom user interface. A 4 inch WVGA touch screen can be found on these magnificently mid range devices and clock a 480×800 pixel resolution at 233 pixels per inch. The two devices are powered by the likes of a 1500 mAh battery, a single core 1.4 GHz chipset that is unspecified but rumored to be the MSM8255T kind, 1 GB of RAM (unconfirmed), 4 GB of internal storage and expandable micro SD memory options. Around back a 5 mega pixel camera capable of recording video in 720p is perched just above an LED flash and speaker. A front facing .3 mega pixel camera has also shown up to the party. But the best part about these new myTouches is their HSPA+ connectivity for super fast 4G speeds.
The two myTouch devices will be made available August 8th. The myTouch will be available in dark red and black, while the myTouch Q can be had in white and black. The two options will cost you about $50 bucks after a $50 dollar mail in rebate.
