The HTC myTouch 4G Android 2.2 Froyo handset is one of the first smartphones designed specifically for T-Mobile’s new HSPA+ 4G wireless network, which now covers over 75 major metropolitan areas in the US. HTC says the myTouch 4G for T-Mobile is designed for those cell phone users who are new to smartphone ownership. HTC would further state that it is easy to set it up, even if the handset purchaser has never worked with a smartphone or an Android operating system before. The HTC myTouch for T-Mobile’s 4G wireless broadband network is available exclusively on that platform for $99 with a two-year activation.
In keeping with the entry level design, HTC added both virtual QWERTY keyboard and Swype input into the T-Mobile myTouch 4G handset. The handset itself is about average in size and weight compared to all other 4G devices, measuring 4.82 x 2.50 x 0.40 inches (122 x 64 x 10 mm) and weighing only 3.80 oz (108 g). The display is a 3.80 inch capacitive touch screen, with support for multitouch gestures. A light sensor is built in and compensates for surrounding light levels, and a proximity sensor has been installed for automatic shut off when the phone is not in use.

The 1500 mAh battery offers up to 9 hours of continuous talk time and 456 hours of standby time, both numbers better than the 4G averages. A front facing chat cam also allows for video calls to be placed, and the rear facing 5 megapixel camcorder records video at 720P HD resolution and has an auto focus feature. A YouTube video player and FM stereo have been preinstalled, and Netflix and T-Mobile TV in Mobile Hdare preloaded, and both provide streaming video out-of-the-box.
768 MB of RAM memory is on board, and the processor is a 1 GHz single core Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon chip with Adreno 205 GPU. 4 GB of internal memory is present, with the ability to upgrade that to 32 GB via the microSD slot. A microUSB port is also built-in, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity round out the technical specs.
