I thoroughly enjoy using my T-Mobile G1 Google Android device on the T-Mobile network (see my full review) and find the keyboard to be a fantastic mobile QWERTY keyboard. I was pleased to hear T-Mobile USA announce early this morning that the second Google Android device will be coming to the network in July. The T-Mobile myTouch 3G does not have a QWERTY keyboard, but it does have an upgraded interface and some additional features over the T-Mobile G1. This is the T-Mobile USA branded HTC Magic device.

Make sure you have a backup of your device and are willing to risk a hard reset before trying this software out as it is very early in the development cycle and not that stable.
