Today T-Mobile USA unwrapped its new HTC Magic-based myTouch 3G. Specification-wise. the phone is a near clone of the Vodafone model that is been available for some time with the exception of the built-in Microsoft Exchange email support. While we haven’t seen the device itself yet, we are expecting that it lacks the “with Google” branding found on the G1 and will be shipping with the same HTC augmented version of Android as seen in some Asian markets.
Features of the phone include a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera, a music player application with support for MP3, AAC, AAC+, WMA, OGG, and RM media files, and an included 4GB microSD card that comes pre-installed. GPS is also on-board for Google Maps use, and IM support is available for AIM, Windows Live, Yahoo!, and Google Talk.
The phone will be available in white, black, and a nice merlot red color. You should head on over to MobileBurn.com for the full T-Mobile myTouch 3G spec sheet. We’ll be posting more information here as it becomes available, too.
But for now, know that existing T-Mobile USA customers can pre-order the device on July 8, and that it will be available nation-wide in T-Mobile retail locations starting in early August. A photo gallery is available after the jump.
