HTC and T-Mobile Announce new myTouch

HTC has recently announced the latest addition to their myTouch range: a line of Android-powered devices designed exclusively for customers of the popular T-Mobile carrier.

The myTouch HD features a considerably higher specification than previous myTouch devices. In a refreshing twist, HTC has blessed the device with the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor found in the Desire HD, along with 768MB of RAM, a 3.8″ capacitive WVGA LCD, a 3.5mm headphone jack and two cameras (one front-facing 0.3MP sensor along with a 5MP sensor at the rear). One of T-Mobile’s key selling points for the device is that it will work with their newly launched 4G network and the phone is expected to run Froyo from launch.

The myTouch HD will be marketed as an affordable alternative to large-screen smartphones such as the Nexus One and the Desire and should be hitting T-Mobile some time in November. You can expect to see forums appear for the device in the coming weeks.

Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles.
