The new Google phone released by T-Mobile will be called MyTouch. As it's its predecessor, it will be used by Google's operating system Google, Google Android. Although consumers have not tested the product, it is said to be smaller, lighter and faster than the T-Mobile G1.
T-Mobile MyTouch's biggest upgrade is the keyboard. Unlike G1, the keyboard is part of the touch screen. This is a feature that the iPhone has used too much of success. The MyTouch vibrates when a key has been touched to let you know that you did it right. Another feature that has been added is what is called predictive text input.
Another physical change is the size of the phone. It is much skinnier compared to the bulky G1. Usually when things are smaller, they also weigh less, the same applies to MyTouch, weighing 4.1 ounces compared to the bulky 5.6 ounces of G1. The last physical change is available colors. You will be able to get sleek white and black along with the shadow of the burgundy. Do not worry, though, I see that T-Mobile will give you lots of skins to customize your MyTouch.
A major problem the customers had with the G1 was the terrible battery life. T-Mobile MyTouch tries to fix this issue by upgrading the battery to 1340 mAh, claiming to have six hours of talk time. Of course, when the phone is released and tested, it will have a much less talk time than required.
T-Mobile MyTouch will come with 4GB of microSD memory. These cards are not too expensive and that's what you should use to add more memory to your phone. The ease of upgrading the phone is certainly a great asset, however, compared to iPhone that comes with 32MB of memory this is one area that MyTouch does not compare.
The MyTouch will come up with Android. This is a mobile operating system created by Google. Google Android was considered to be the best part of G1 and this new version comes with some updates that have not yet been released. With the popularity of the Google Android mobile operating system, T-Mobile plans to launch several Android devices in 2009.
