As expected, T-Mobile USA has launched its next smartphone based on the Google Android platform: the myTouch 3G.
The form factor is a rebranding of the HTC Magic, leaked earlier in the year. It differs from the Android-based G1 by having no physical keyboard (hence, presumably, the name). It’s also thinner and no longer has the protrusion at the bottom that the G1 sports.
And, it supports Microsoft Exchange. Otherwise, the $199 handset has the same features as the G1, like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, display size, camera and Google apps. It runs the “Cupcake” Android 1.5 OS update and supports 7.2mbps HSPA — a quality much-touted in the rival iPhone 3G S.
