T-Mobile launches MyTouch 3G Android phone T-Mobile USA today has launched their second Android-based smartphone, the MyTouch 3G, hoping it will match or exceed sales of the original G1.
The G1 is said to have sold one million units in its first 3 months, marking a rare success for the carrier.

Cole Brodman, CTO for T-Mobile adds: "A vast majority of customers will be new to Android and new to smart phones," adding he believes the phone will exceed sales of its predecessor.

The MyTouch 3G has been said to be "Basically, it's the G1 without the keyboard," notes Avi Greengart, an analyst for Current Analysis, via the WSJ. "They're just marketing it differently."

The phone will cost $199 with two year contract and will go on sale on August 5th.

I love my G1. The Touch looks like an incomplete G1. I use my slide keyboard for longer texts and emails. It's just more convenient.

Ditto, once rooted there isn't much you can't do with it, it even has a metal detector app that appears to work.....
