T-Mobile USA announced new LG-made T-Mobile myTouch and the T-Mobile myTouch Q Android smartphones, both of which will be available “in time for the holiday season,” whatever that means. The first of the two is an all-touchscreen device with a 3.8-inch display while the latter sports a smaller 3.5-inch screen along with a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard. In addition, both smartphones also rock a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording support on the back, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, 1GHz single-core processor, while Android 2.3 Gingerbread is running the show. The myTouch also has a front-facing camera that is used for video calls.

When it comes to preinstalled software, T-Mobile emphasizes Set-up Wizard, Tips Widget and Genius Button – which should help first-time Android phone users more easily get around all of the functions.

Price was not unveiled though I guess we’re talking about devices that could easily cost about $100 on a contract. We’ll see…

The "convergence" is what he's most excited about, and writing about it is the next logical thing to do. He thinks that using a smartphone is what everyone who cares about their time should do. In addition to his interests in mobile phones, Dusan also loves to experiment with the latest web and mobile 2.0 services. The idea of accessing and managing your information from any device no matter where you are simply amazes him. Whether it's an online to-do list, note taking service or a video sharing social network, he's there to try it out. He admits though, he's still searching for the ultimate web-based organizational tool, which "sings" perfectly with the mobile PIM application. Dusan used to run Symbian Watch which later became part of IntoMobile. He lives in Serbia, South-East Europe, from where he edits the site on a daily basis.
