T-Mobile was first out of the Android gate with the G1 and now we see the second HTC Android device with a QWERTY slide keyboard. The myTouch 3G Slide may be a good phone for those moving from a Sidekick, but isn't perfect either.

I was envious of Sprint customers back when I reviewed the HTC Hero and jumped on the opportunity to pick up the best Google Nexus One as soon as it was announced. The recent firmware update fixed the only issues I have seen on the device (3G/EDGE connectivity and browser/gallery multi-touch) and I am really enjoying the whole Nexus One experience. Google has a Nexus One YouTube channel and is posting a five-part short film series on the making of the Nexus One that will be complete on the 8th of February.
The Fender Limited Edition T-Mobile myTouch 3G adds a woodgrain effect, music-inspired apps and Slowhand's approval to the HTC-made Android handset. I went hands on to see if the Fender Edition could be cranked to 11.

One of the best Windows Mobile devices I have at the moment is the T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2, primarily due to the incredible QWERTY keyboard. I just read over on TmoNews that the rumored Windows Mobile 6.5 update is now available for T-Mobile customers with the Touch Pro2 and Dash 3G. Simply visit the T-Mobile downloads page and enter your Touch Pro2/Dash 3G IMEI number to get the download. I believe this is a version of the first WM 6.5 update and not the MUCH better Windows Mobile 6.5.3 update I showed you this week.
You all know how impressed I have been with the HTC HD2 Windows Mobile device and the only issue I have with it has been support for 3G in the US. We knew that HTC was going to bring it to a major US carrier in 2010 and tonight Steve Ballmer will talk a bit about the HD2 coming to T-Mobile USA in the Spring. As a T-Mobile customer I couldn't be more excited, but after just buying the Nexus One I will have to think for a few minutes before jumping on the HD2. Regular readers know I won't be able to resist the HD2 on T-Mobile and we'll have to see what price and firmware it launches with.
Security researchers test four smartphones (Nokia N95, Windows HTC tilt, Android G1 and Apple iPhone 3G S) and demonstrate man-in-the-middle attacks conducted through compromised Wi-Fi spots.
My T-Mobile SIM is setup for my T-Mobile G1 Google Android device that I have owned since day 1 (see my full review) and continue to enjoy with the updates and growing Android Market application selection. T-Mobile was the first US wireless carrier to support Android and then rolled out the T-Mobile myTouch 3G to add a second Android and become the carrier of choice for Android fans. T-Mobile will be launching a third Android device, the Motorola CLIQ, very soon, but they are no longer the exclusive Android carrier. Sprint has the awesome HTC Hero with the Samsung Moment coming soon and Verizon will have a couple of devices in 2010. AT&T has nothing announced yet, but there are rumors of a Dell handset. When you decide you want an iPhone, you only have one choice in carrier and form factor, but when you now consider an Android device you can stay with your carrier and/or have a choice in form factor. Let's take a closer look at what Android devices are or will be coming to each carrier in the US, followed by my thoughts on what I have found to be the best so far.
I posted some thoughts on the Pharos Traveler 137 back in June and at that time it was the first Windows Mobile device that supports the T-Mobile 3G wireless data network. We now have the T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 with keyboard available as an option for T-Mobile customers too. The Pharos Traveler 137 is one of those selected Windows Mobile phones that will soon be receiving a Windows Mobile 6.5 update and I was pleased to be able to try out this latest software implementation on the device.
T-Mobile no longer has the exclusive market for Android devices in the United States with Sprint coming out with a real winner in the HTC Hero that passes up both of T-Mobile's offerings. The HTC Hero from Sprint is the US CDMA version of the Hero that launched on GSM networks overseas in a form factor more like the T-Mobile myTouch 3G. I've spent over a week with the Hero and can say it is the best Android device I have used yet and my statement about the Hero meeting both user interface and functionality needs in a single device looks to be quite accurate.
I briefly tried the myTouch 3G and then went and bought the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 thinking these would be the best T-Mobile USA 3G smartphones for a while. We then saw the Nokia N900 announced with support for T-Mobile's 1700 MHz 3G network and I preordered one for myself. Today at the Mobilize 09 conference we heard from Motorola that the CLIQ will be coming to T-Mobile USA this Fall so we will get yet another powerful Google Android device and 3G smartphone on T-Mobile. I was thinking Sprint customers were lucky with all of their new devices (Palm Pre and Pixi, HTC Hero, Touch Pro2) and now we are seeing T-Mobile USA having plenty of options for the smartphone fan and as a long-time T-Mobile customer I couldn't be happier.
There is something about the Google Android character that I really enjoy and I have seriously been considering getting a tattoo of it on my arm or leg. Today, HTC announced a device that I think my wife would approve of first and that is the HTC Tattoo Google Android device running the slick HTC Sense UI. As stated in the press release the HTC Tattoo is taking a page from the T-Mobile myTouch 3G and focusing on the personalization aspects of the device with the ability to create a custom skin and make it your own.
Last week when I posted my first impressions of the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 I stated that I ended up buying the myTouch 3G when I went to visit the T-Mobile store instead of picking up the TP2 as I intended. Yesterday was my ninth day of owning the myTouch 3G, but I made the decision to visit T-Mobile and trade it back in for the Touch Pro2 for a couple of reasons. I actually called six stores throughout the Seattle/Tacoma area and only one had a single Touch Pro2 in stock as all the other stores were sold out. I am not sure how many were in each store, but even with the $350 price they seem to be selling well.
The T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro2 is definitely not a small pocketable device, but more of a portable computer with functions those in the business field may appreciate. The hardware is quite good, but I was left with the feeling that Android would have been much more enjoyable on it. As I wrote last week I went all in with T-Mobile and as a result had a line with full upgrade eligibility. I planned to wait until this week and purchase my own Touch Pro2, but left the store with a new Merlot myTouch 3G so let's go through the device and see why I didn't stick to my original plan.
Capacitive touch screen devices are all the rage today with the iPhone 3GS, Palm Pre, HTC Hero and BlackBerry Storm. However, there are still many people who want a non-touch screen forward facing QWERTY device that is heavily focused on messaging. While I tend to bounce around quite a bit between different devices, the forward facing QWERTY form factor is one of my absolute favorite. To help you figure out which of these devices might fit your needs we are going to present a three part feature (with a summary post too) looking at the best QWERTY devices running the BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Symbian operating systems available from US wireless carriers. The three selected devices are the RIM BlackBerry Tour, T-Mobile Dash 3G, and Nokia E71x.
I mention the usage of HTC ExtUSB (11-pin mini-USB 2.0 and audio jack in one) in my reviews because I generally prefer to have a standard 3.5mm headset jack on my mobile phones so I can listen to music and podcasts with my own Ultimate Ears headphones. MobileCrunch questioned HTC and received a response that most HTC devices launched after the HTC Hero will have a 3.5mm headset jack. Devices already announced, like the Touch Pro2 and myDash 3G, will still have the ExtUSB port. There has been one device I know of that previously launched with a 3.5mm headset jack, the HTC Touch HD, but I think that is it. While I think the majority of people will be pleased with the strategy of using a 3.5mm headset jack moving forward, I can also see the validity of using the HTC ExtUSB port.
A couple weeks ago T-Mobile announced the myTouch 3G for release in August. This morning in New York HTC and T-Mobile held a launch event (check out Engadget Mobile's coverage) and unlike last year when the T-Mobile G1 was launched I was unable to make the cross country trip for this device. Similar to the launch event of the T-Mobile G1, existing T-Mobile customers can now pre-order the myTouch 3G for $199.99 with a two-year contract and be guaranteed delivery by August 5th (maybe the 3rd since that is also listed on one page). Last time, T-Mobile delivered my G1 just as they said on the availability date, but you must pre-order by 28 July.
