SAN FRANCISCO (GaeaTimes.com)- Finally the much touted MyTouch 4G Android smart phone from the stable of T mobile is arriving in USA today. The ad of the handset has created a buzz in the tech circle already and some reports suggest that the model is actually being offered by some retailers at much lower prices compared to what T Mobile is offering. If this is true that the customers can access “America’s largest 4G network” as claimed by the network service provider at unprecedented high speeds. The handset comes from T mobile at a price of $199 after a generous $50 discount. However, three retailers have brought the price down to $79.99 and they are also offering it with a 2 year contract.ARTICLE CONTINUED BELOW
The handset has been made by Taiwanese company HTC and it runs the latest Android 2.2 Froyo OS. Talk about features and the MyTouch 4G has it all, be it support for WiFi, 4G, GPS or Bluetooth. The hardware is also beefed up with 2nd generation Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU that runs at 1 GHz. The 3.8inch TFT Touchscreen display is a joy to use as well. The phone has in built 4GB memory and T Mobile is also giving a 8GB memory card in addition. This would be adequate except for the very demanding users. There is a decent 5MP camera at the back and a front VGA camera. This is the first time a T Mobile phone is coming with a front facing camera.
The USP of the MyTouch 4G is the support for the high speed HSPA+ network of T Mobile. It has beaten Verizon in rolling out 4G services in the USA first.
