The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Looks Simply Beautiful

T-Mobile announced the myTouch 4g will be available for purchase on November 3rd, 2010.  The price point will be $199.99.

$199.99 (after a $50 mail-in-rebate), plus taxes and fees, with a two-year service agreement and qualifying voice and data plan. The myTouch 4G will be available nationwide through T-Mobile retail stores and online at The myTouch 4G will also be available nationwide beginning November 3 through select third-party dealers and leading national retailers including Best Buy, Costco, RadioShack, Sam's Club and Target. Pricing may vary at independent dealers and national retailers.

Here is a small sample of the key features of the myTouch 4G:

  • Media room integrates music, videos, T-Mobile TV, FM Radio and Slacker Internet radio in a single media player.

I first got my hands on the smartphone last night at a T-Mobile myTouch event in NYC. The handset is a beautiful 3.8-inch WVGA touch-screen display. The most impressive feature is that the myTouch -- like the G2 -- will take full advantage of the HSPA+ network. The myTouch has a built-in HSPA+ radio and real world speed tests look something like this -- 9.11 Mbp/s download and 2.73 Mbp/s upload.
