T-Mobile USA has officially announced its first two myTouch smartphones manufactured by Huawei. Curiously, and much to the confusion of customers, they have exactly the same names as the 2011 LG-made handsets: T-Mobile myTouch, and T-Mobile myTouch Q.
Both the myTouch and myTouch Q will be available at T-Mobile starting August 8, for $49.99 on contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate.
The new T-Mobile myTouch (pictured below) features a 4 inch WVGA display, 4G (HSPA+), enhanced voice control, 1.4 GHz single-core processor, 5MP rear camera, and front-facing camera. Sadly, it will be launched running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with no word regarding a possible upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich.
As for the new T-Mobile myTouch Q, this has a sliding QWERTY keyboard:
QWERTY keyboard aside, the myTouch Q offers the same set of features you’ll find on the simple myTouch (yes, including the aging Android 2.3 Gingerbread).
