T-Mobile Dash

HTC's new challenger to the Motorola Q has had a long development history: known initially as the Excalibur, the new smartphone has long since been suggested as a prime candidate for T-Mobile USA's emphasis on data-savvy models. The speculation and doubts have been put to rest on Wednesday by the official release of the T-Mobile Dash, a provider-branded version of HTC's design. The Dash is designed with Internet use in mind and has a touchstrip along the side for scrolling through e-mail or websites; it also includes EDGE support and WiFi for connecting to the Internet either through the cellular network or a local hotspot. A 1.3-megapixel camera gives the Dash an extra advantage over Motorola's handset.

Specific to T-Mobile is support for the company's myFaves feature that lets subscribers have unlimited calling to any of five friends or family, regardless of the carriers they use. T-Mobile will start shipping the Dash on October 25th for prices ranging from $350 without a contract to $199 with a two-year plan. See a full photo after the jump.
