T-Mobile has released their myTouch 4G handset. While the myTouch 4G isn’t T-Mobile’s first 4G phone (the G2 gets that credit) it is their first 4G phone to support video chat via QIK. Three retailers have dipped the price of the Android 2.2.-running, 4G-powered T-Mobile myTouch 4G to as low as $79.99. T-Mobile is offering it for $199 after a $50 rebate.
The HTC-made myTouch 4G runs Android 2.2 (or “Froyo”) and features 4G, 3G, EDGE, WiFi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1 and GPS connectivity. The processor is a second-generation 1GHz Snapdragon, from Qualcomm, and the display is a 3.8-inch TFT widescreen, with a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels. The latest myTouch runs Google’s Android OS 2.2 on a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and is bundled with an 8 GB microSD memory card.
T-Mobile makes a point, in an ad that began airing Nov. 3, that the myTouch 4G can video chat with or without WiFi, and to that end there’s a front-facing camera, in addition to a 5-megapixel camera on the back, with video at 30 frames per second. There are 4GB of internal memory, plus an 8GB SD card, though it can support up to a 32GB card. And for a few extra bucks a month, the myTouch 4G can be used as a hotspot for up to four other devices.
And Like all Android OS-based models, the myTouch 4G will come with an extensive suite of entertainment and communication software. It is available in a range of colors: black, white, red, and plum.
