T-Mobile myTouch HD announced, comes with Froyo, video calling and “4G speeds”
T-Mobile USA has finally announced the HTC-made myTouch HD, but, for some reason, it’s calling it just “myTouch”.
As previously reported, the new smartphone runs Android 2.2 Froyo and features a 5MP camera with HD video recording. It also comes with a front-facing camera for video calling via both Wi-Fi and T-Mo’s network (through Qik or Yahoo Messenger).
Like the yet-to-be-launched T-Mobile G2, the myTouch is compatible with T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network, thus being capable of providing “4G speeds.” Of course, HSPA+ isn’t 4G, but T-Mobile says the network can offer speeds comparable to 4G.
Other features of the myTouch: 3.8 inch WVGA touchscreen display, Swype virtual keyboard, new Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor clocked at 1GHz, and an 8GB memory card preinstalled.
The T-Mobile myTouch will be available for purchase “in time for the holidays”. T-Mo didn’t say for what price, but it did mention the color versions that customers will be able to buy: black, white, red and plum. You can register for updates here.
