Yes, we knew that T-Mobile was about to roll out a couple of myTouch devices earlier yesterday morning, but here is an official statement from the mobile carrier themselves on the myTouch and myTouch Q – whereby both LG smartphones were specially designed to be easy to use, and is touted to be an introductory handset to those who are about to plunge into the world of smartphones for the first-time.
In order to make them accessible rigth from the get go, LG decided to throw in two different styles of hardware – the myTouch comes with a 3.8″ touch screen display and a virtual keyboard with Swype, while those who prefer a physical QWERTY keyboard to go along with the 3.5″ touch screen display can always settle for the myTouch Q.
Other shared tools include a set-up wizard, a tips widget, a Genius Button that offers one-shot voice commands to call, text, or search the Web, as well as Android 2.3 Gingerbread as the operating system of choice. Hardware-wise, you get a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, a 5-megapixel camera which does great stills as well as 720p HD video recording capability, and a front-facing camera on the myTouch that allows one to make video calls.
Expect the T-Mobile myTouch to come in black or white, while the T-Mobile myTouch Q ships in gray or violet shades. [Press Release]
