T-Mobile’s myTouch and myTouch Q to hit stores August 8

Be it touchscreen typing or QWERTY, MyTouch has you covered
July 11, 2012

Are you a fan of the MyTouch series on T-Mobile? You’ll be pleased to know that the refreshed MyTouch phones will be up for grabs soon. Sure, T-Mobile had to pull a manufacturer switcheroo to Huawei, but the phone still packs some respectable specs, design, and the all-important physical QWERTY keyboard.  The T-Mobile myTouch and MyTouch Q will be released on August 8, but a true keyboard aficionado will want to pay attention only to the Q model.

Minus the slide-out keyboard, the T-Mobile MyTouch and MyTouch Q has similar specs. Here they are:

  • 4-inch WVGA display
  • Single-core 1.4GHz processor
  • 5MP rear camera with a dedicated shutter button
  • Front-facing camera
  • 4G connectivity
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Included with the MyTouch phones is the next-generation Genius Button, which allows users to control various aspects of the phone using their voice. Added voice commands include direct search using multiple sources, direct app launch, making dinner reservations, and more. Seeing that it’s powered by Dragon from Nuance, we can probably expect a noteworthy real-life performance.

The T-Mobile MyTouch will come in black or dark red color, while the MyTouch Q comes in black or white. The phone will cost $50 when it’s released in August – after mail-in rebate and with a two-year contract.
