The T-Mobile myTouch or myTouch series is a product line of private label smartphones manufactured by HTC, LG and Huawei sold and marketed in the United States by T-Mobile USA under the T-Mobile brand.[1] Each phone in the series runs a version of the Android software stack.

The T-Mobile myTouch 3G is a version of the HTC Magic, but the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide and the T-Mobile myTouch 4G are both unique to T-Mobile USA.

The myTouch series has thus far included simultaneous marketing of slider-keyboarded and keyless versions of otherwise similarly equipped models.

Quotations[edit]

Quotations from Tmonews.com:
Huawei will be the next manufacturer for the myTouch, with two Gingerbread-powered devices, the U8680 and U8730 (are) two identical devices except for the keyboard. Both phones sport a WVGA 800×480 resolution.[7]
 
 
..."The boys from Engadget happened to be hanging out at Huawei’s headquarters in China when the noticed the Ascend G312 QWERTY device had the “myTouch” label. The non-QWERTY variant wasn’t around, but we do get a small gallery of images and a quick video showing off the newest myTouch hardware.
The new myTouch packs a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T chip, 4-inch WVGA screen, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage and microSD expansion, along with features like DLNA connectivity and a five-second fast boot. There is a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera along with a five-megapixel camera on the rear of the device coupled with 720p video recording. The spec sheet indicated the device will arrive with Ice Cream Sandwich however, the test device was running Android 2.3.6.
Engadget reports satisfactory build quality, especially with the spring-loaded slider and joyful keyboard feedback. The screen isn’t the best we’ve seen but provided this phone is geared to be an introductory and family friendly smartphone, we have to set our expectations low."...[8]
