Will the myTouch HD be the first U.S. 4G enabled phone with dual-core?

This article contains unofficial information.

Will the myTouch HD be the first U.S. 4G enabled phone with dual-core?
Last week there was some speculation that the LG Optimus, a handset powered by the Tegra 2 processor, would be the first dual core phone to grace the pipelines of a U.S. carrier. But some information from a leaked T-Mobile document suggests that the nation's fourth largest carrier might beat LG to the punch with the myTouch HD.

According to the document, the myTouch HD has some heavy duty specs. Powered by a 1GHz dual processor, the device is expected to be equipped with a 3.8 inch S-TFT display and running Android 2.2. The rear facing camera should be 5MP with AF and flash while the front facing camera is expected to be VGA. The model is supposed to have 4GB of internal memory and be graced with a pre-installed Swype keyboard. As a safety feature, the Genius button has been updated to allow you to answer a text message using your voice.
Will the myTouch HD be the first U.S. 4G enabled phone with dual-core?
The myTouch HD originally had a November 5th launch date based on T-Mobile's road map, but as we reported, the word is that the phone will be released on the 3rd of that month. T-Mobile will also start acknowledging that HSPA+ is basically 4G as ads for the device say it will be "operating on America's largest 4G network." The network has a current theoretical speed of 21 Mbps which is expected to double next year.

Santa will probably be lugging some T-Mobile handsets in his bags this holiday season. Between the first HSPA+ enabled handset in the T-Mobile G2 and the dual-core HSPA+ enabled myTouch HD, there is going to be some super powered Android phones under the tree this year.

ok so far im luving this phone !!! i just really hope that t-mobile allows video calling over there 3G network because im pretty sure there hspa+ network can handle it .. hopefully video calling works over 3G i really hope they dont do it like at&t and make video calling available only on wi-fi cuz that would really suck and also cuz i live in an hspa + area ( LA) so it wud be nice to take advantage of video calling without having to be relying on wi-fi because there great 3G coverage in my area ... SO YEa ... im soo getting this phone when it comes out ...!!

well gay ricky i have to agree with u i know it says above they gunna allow video calling on there 3G network i just hope its true , hopefully someone didnt make that article up because im suprised it says above t-mobile is finally going to allow video calls over there 3G network without using wifi because i have had t-mobile for 2 years and so faar i have always been dissapointed wit the decisions they been making latelty i was about to switch over to sprint just so i could have video calling on the evo without having to use wi-fi but now that i see this article which im hoping is true i think im gunna give t-mobile another try and stay with them only cuz they gunna take out this new phone that can make video calls without having to use wi-fi . so im also going to be getting it when it comes out .

Although you can video call over 3G after jailbreaking an iPhone, the 2GB limited data plan still blows.

Finally T-Mobile announces a phone that I can actually get excited about... right on time too cause my contract runs out in november and I was looking at going to sprint or verizon... Even though it doesnt have a keyboard I will make due cause it has everything else I want.

If this has a bigger battery than the g2 I am getting it. I don't care so much about video calling. Motorola Defy looks good too because I have a tendency to drop my phones a lot. I don't want to have to worry about being too careful with it. If Defy has froyo out of the box it might be worth looking into as well, based on its pricing.

easytochris why would you want to pay for wireless tethering when you can get it for free and it literally takes all of 10 minutes to get and works perfect with 4G on the G2, pathmarkpolice the battery on the G2 is fine its better than any iphone version and just as good as any other phone but at the end of the day if you use the phone the battery will die, i suggest you buy a igo portable battery its like 45 dollars and it plugs right into the outlet, it charges your phone or any device that has a usb(because it has 2 usb ports on it) along with the 1700mah battery inside it, when its done charging later on when you need a charge for whatever you are using plug it in wherever u are and hit the power button to turn it on, it charges my G2 to about 70 percent with a full charge my phone hasnt died in almost 3 months
