T-Mobile has just announced two new myTouch devices built by LG: the T-Mobile myTouch and the myTouch Q. You may remember seeing something similar yesterday in that leaked T-Mobile roadmap, and from what we can see these are both slated for a November 2 release.
The T-Mobile myTouch is your basic slab-style smartphone running Android 2.3 Gingerbread on a single-core 1GHz processor from Qualcomm. The myTouch has a 3.8-inch display, a 5-megapixel rear shooter capable of video capture in 720p, and a VGA front-facing camera for video chat. T-Mobile has slapped its myTouch skin over Android and tossed in the Swype keyboard, as well.
Rounding out the duo is the myTouch Q QWERTY slider. It holds most of the same specs as its myTouch cousin, including Android 2.3 Gingerbread and that 1GHz single-core Qualcomm processor. However, the front-facing VGA camera has been ditched and the screen was reduced to 3.8 inches. No worries though, the myTouch Q still keeps that 5-megapixel rear camera with 720p video capture. The four-row slide-out keyboard comes loaded with a Genius button, which launches directly into T-Mobile’s voice control system. Again, Android may look a bit different courtesy of T-Mobile’s myTouch UI.
The T-Mobile myTouch will come in both black and white flavors, and according to the roadmap it should cost $129 on-contract. Its slider counterpart, the myTouch Q, should also be available on November 2 in both grey and violet, with an on-contract price tag of $129.
