T-Mobile introduces new myTouch phones built by Huawei

T-Mobile has announced the myTouch and myTouch Q. Both are nearly the same except for the side-sliding QWERTY on the latter model. Both new myTouch phones have been manufactured by Huawei (whose name hopefully you can now pronounce) and both are powered by Android 2.3. The pair each have a 4 inch WVGA screen and a 1.4GHz processor under the hood. Both models have a 5MP camera and a front-facing shooter, the Swype typing system and the T-Mobile Genius Button 4.0 from voice recognition experts Nuance. The latter has a Genius Web search that uses voice commands to launch an app, make a search or dinner reservations. A reworked app tray lets you view all of your apps at once, your most recently used apps or those you most recently downloaded. You will be able to search for your apps with your voice.
Considering that the Motorola ATRIX HD changed the pricing game with its $99 on-contract price for a loaded phone, T-Mobile had to make the pricing just right and it appears that they have. Both phones are $49.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and will be available later this summer. The T-Mobile myTouch will be available in black and dark red while the T-Mobile myTouch Q can be purchased in black or white.

The mytouch line is kind of going down instead of upgrading they are degrading.

good decision by t mobile! even though $50 is still expensive for me, and it doesnt even have ICS on it! and the specs are not par for a $50 2-year contract.. im just saying this because its too expensive.. i live in the philippines but 2150 pesos plan for a phone that is cheaply made, so no thanks! our huawei here are offered free at 299 peso plan! on a 2000 peso plan.. you can get a samsung GS2 or a lumia 800!

wow, the lower part of the phone looks like my HTC Desire S.. Huawei, I just hope that you can grow and compete with the big guns in the industry, because I have faith in your brand. I would love to see Huawei head-to-head with the rest of Samsung, HTC, LG, Moto, Sony in 2013.. I just don't know why the hate for Huawei, if many of the wireless devices are actually made by them. And being a Chinese company doesn't mean that they are sub-par, this is one of the occasions when the Chinese can actually make a decent, original product..
