Are these 6 T-Mobile models nearing their
It is the end of January and this time every year, carriers' thoughts start turning to making room on the shelves for the new batch of handsets that are coming. With MWC less than a month away, and a new batch of the most-up-to date models about to be displayed, TmoNews has obtained a leaked screenshot of an internal T-Mobile document. The document shows some devices on Controlled Distribution with no plans to replenish depleted inventories of these phones. The half-dozen Android models include three models manufactured by HTC which might actually get a little more time considering that the carrier continues to advertise some of them. The remaining three LG models are ones that not too many will miss.

Are these 6 models EOL?
The six handsets are the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide (HTC), HTC Sensation 4G, HTC Amaze 4G, LG Doubleplay, T-Mobile myTouch (LG) and the T-Mobile myTouch Q (LG). The first phone on the list, the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide, had already been cut to "zero" by Best Buy with a 2-year contract, and still offers some decent specs including the 8MP camera with dual LED flash, ClearShot HDR and "zero shutter lag." It also captures videos at 1080p. The HTC Sensation 4G is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and the HTC Amaze 4G rolls with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and was launched less than 4 months ago.

The LG Doubleplay offers a second screen in the middle of the slideout QWERTY in addition to the  3.5 inch screen on the front of the unit. The myTouch (LG) features a 3.8 inch screen, a single-core 1GHz processor and a rear and front-facing camera weighing in at 5MP and  VGA respectively. The T-Mobile myTouch Q (LG) is similar to the previous model except that it comes with a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard.

Anyone going to miss any of these handsets?
