The T-Mobile myTouch 3G -- this wireless carrier's second smartphone running Google's Android -- is now available.
This model offers consumers a much slimmer option than this company's first Android model, the T-Mobile G1, by leaving off the built-in keyboard.
It has tablet shape with a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen and a trackball on its front. For text input, it depends on a virtual keyboard, which can change orientation automatically from portrait to landscape mode, depending on how it is held.
The Android OS was created by Google, and has strong ties to this company's online services for email, calendar, navigation, and more. Other consumer-friendly features in the myTouch 3G include a multimedia player, built-in 3.2-megapixel camera, and more.
To make full use of these features, this model comes with a GPS receiver and a 4 GB microSD memory card for storing music, videos, and images.
But it won't stop there. This will be the first Android model with something to offer users who want access to their corporate e-mail: T-Mobile says it comes with support for Microsoft Exchange.
It is available in three colors: black, white and red.
With the name "myTouch 3G" it's no surprise that this phone supports T-Mobile's high-speed network; it also has Wi-Fi.
This will speed up web surfing on its advanced browser, and also a variety of other third-party apps that depend on Internet access.
This device is selling for $200 with a two-year service agreement.
T-Mobile is also offering an array of accessories and customized shells.
