T-Mobile USA’s second Android phone to come this month, possibly not from HTC

T-Mobile USA has officially confirmed that its second Android smartphone is going to be released in “early summer”, which probably means before the end of June.

In an interview with mocoNews, T-Mobile’s CTO Cole Brodman confirmed not only the upcoming release of their second Android device, but also the fact that there will be several other Android phones launched this year.

Interestingly, the carrier’s second Android handset might not be the HTC Magic aka MyTouch 3G, but a device made by a new T-Mobile partner – possibly Samsung or Motorola.

The new handset will obviously run on Android OS 1.5 Cupcake. Sadly, further details about it are not known at the moment.


Android aside, T-Mobile’s CTO also said that they will most probably not carry the Nokia N97, which, as you know, will hit the US this month.

“Some of the Nokia/Symbian devices have a lot of functionality, but they are quite expensive and Symbian does not have a lot of traction in the U.S. While Nokia is a strong partner, we haven’t had a lot of demand for N-series products to date,” declared Brodman.

Well, at least T-Mo’s customers will have several new Android phones to choose from pretty soon. And let’s not forget about the WinMo 6.1 HTC Touch Pro 2, aka T-Mobile Wing II.
