HTC Teams up with T-Mobile yet again for the myTouch 4G capable handset
T-Mobile has added yet another Android to its exclusive line of devices. This one, the T-Mobile myTouch smartphone is made by Android handset pioneers HTC and is designed to deal with the new super-fast HSPA+ mobile broadband network. T-Mobile says that this handset is built with families in mind. It features HD video recording, spontaneous face-to-face conversations through Video Chat and the ability to reach 4G speeds on T-Mobile’s new network, which is now available in more cities across the country. Video Chatting will of course be available on Wi-Fi in case you’re worried about your bill. Customers can even see who is available to chat through presence information integrated into the myTouch’s address book, and have the option to leave Video Mail using Qik when someone is unavailable.
The myTouch’s high-quality HD Camcorder also comes with a feature called Screen Share, which allows customers to share or broadcast HD video and pictures they’ve captured. The handset can also hook up to DLNA compatible devices in your home. Another set of exclusive features include – Genius Button, powered by Dragon Dictation from Nuance. It lets customers call, text, e-mail or access the internet with a simple voice command. There’s also the Faves Gallery, which offers shortcuts to one’s most-contacted family and friends; and myModes, which creates customized home screens for work and home. The handset’s got a brilliant 3.8-inch WVGA touch-screen display, comes with Swype, a second-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz MSM8255 processor, 8 Gigs of internal storage and a 5MP camera. All of this is powered by Froyo.
The new T-Mobile myTouch is expected to be available in time for the holidays, exclusively from T-Mobile USA in four colors — white, black, plum or red.
