T-Mobile touts its latest Android 2.2 device

The army of Android-powered smartphones continues to grow, and the latest addition is coming from the folks at T-Mobile. The new T-Mobile myTouch uses Google's Android 2.2 operating system.

When it comes to hardware specs, the myTouch is pretty comparable to other Android phones on the market thanks to its 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.8" WVGA display, and dual cameras (a rear-facing 5MP camera, and a front-facing camera for video conferencing). An 8GB microSD card is included for additional storage.

“Taking advantage of the 4G speeds on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network, the new myTouch delivers a faster and more compelling experience than most competing smartphones on the market,” said Andrew Sherrard, T-Mobile USA's vice president of product management. “Our continued focus to build innovative new features and personalized services truly makes myTouch unique.”

HSPA+ gives the myTouch what T-Mobile claims are 4G speeds in 65 markets in the United States (the company hopes to expand to 100 markets and 200 million people by the end of 2010). According to T-Mobile, HSPA can theoretically provide transfer speeds of up to 14Mbps.

Although T-Mobile likes to tout HSPA+ as 4G, AT&T isn't buying it. "I think that companies need to be careful that they're not misleading customers by labeling HSPA+ as a 4G technology," said AT&T spokesman Seth Bloom in late May. "We aren't labeling those technologies as 4G."

T-Mobile hasn't given a specific launch date for the myTouch, but says that it will be available in time "for the holidays" and will come in white, black, red, or plum.
