T-Mobile myTouch 4G unboxed before Nov 3 launch

T-Mobile's flagship Android phone had its final myTouch 4G name confirmed through an unboxing video (below) as much as a week ahead of launch. Third-party shop Wirefly has both shown the new ID, which makes reference to the '4G-like' HSPA+ speeds. It has already gone so far as to post product pages, which also have the device shipping on its widely suspected November 3 date for $150 on a contract.

The myTouch 4G should be one of the fastest smartphones outside of its 14.4Mbps peak download speeds, as it uses the same 1GHz Snapdragon chip found in the Desire HD. HTC is giving T-Mobile's device a 3.8-inch, 800x480 LCD as well as a five-megapixel camera with 720p video capture. T-Mobile's custom UI from the myTouch Slide is likely to carry over, and the carrier is bundling an 8GB microSDHC card to supply most of the storage.

T-Mobile hasn't set official launch details itself, but it's expected to rework its data plans and supply a tethering add-on plan on the same day as the myTouch 4G appears.
