Following huge introductions of the Palm Pre and new iPhone 3G S, T-Mobile announced July availability of my Touch 3G, the second phone on Google’s Android operating system.
It’s the first of 18 new Google-powered phones coming worldwide by the end of the year. Also Sprint is expecting an Android phone coming by year’s end. T-Mobile has sold one million of its first generation Google phone. My Touch is smaller, can sync with Microsoft outlook and has an improved battery life. T-Mobile said : “We’ve addressed some of the concerns from customers” Current T-Mobile customers can order My Touch 3G starting this July 8th for delivery later in the month. General retail availability is planned for early August.
The price? 199 dollars with 2 years contract.
It features an improved form factor in comparison to the G1 (in my opinion), a full QWERTY touchscreen keyboard (yep, Android 1.5 is on board), a 3.2 MP camera, plus tight integration with a bunch of Google apps including Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail and more. This is all to be expected considering the device is a ‘Google Experience’ unit. colors ? black, white, or “merlot.
