T-Mobile outs myTouch 3G

T-Mobile today marked the official release of its second Android-powered handset, the myTouch 3G. Already delivered in advance to some pre-orders and reviewed here, the device is also T-Mobile's first keyboardless Android device sports a 3.2-inch display with haptic feedback for its keyboard as well as a trackball for one-handed use. Besides access to Google apps, it gets Microsoft Exchange support from HTC and multi-IM chat support for AIM, Windows Live and Yahoo. There is a 3.2-megapixel camera capable of recording video, a Wi-Fi connection and a slot for the included 4GB microSD card.

Unlike the G1, buyers can customize the outside of the myTouch by printing various decals, as well as their own photos, for use on the swappable back shell. The myTouch 3G is now available at T-Mobile's stores and online in black, white or merlot red. It remains priced at $200 on a new two-year contract.

At the same time, T-Mobile announced it is now offering the BlackBerry Curve 8520 smartphone. It has a full QWERTY keyboard and a touch-sensitive pad in place of the signature BlackBerry trackball. It is available in black or frost, and costs $130 when purchased with a two-year plan.
