Between Phandroid and AndroidGuys, we have a little bit of information that might disturb some of you. From the sound of it, HTC won’t be carrying on with T-Mobiles “flagship” myTouch series of devices any longer. Between an email to Phandroid stating there were new training videos available on YouTube for the “T-Mobile myTouch by LG” and a little leg work by AndroidGuys, we are looking at what might be T-Mobiles next line of myTouch devices. Ya, I said devices.
Apparently they will be having twins. One with a slide out keyboard to satisfy those of you that can’t use a screen only device and a regular screen only version. Pretty smart move overall though, it provides the best of both worlds will a single branding.
Another interesting bit of speculation comes from potential specs of the device, according to Androidguys. They put this device on a midrange collision course with a brick wall. They suggest that this device will have 3.5″ HVGA display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an 800MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 5.0-megapixel camera.
I am not very confident in those specs being accurate though. it wouldn’t make much sense to introduce a new line of what should be a high-end device sporting the myTouch branding with mid range hardware. It would be a step backwards.
How do you guys feel about this? Any speculation on why they would move from HTC to LG for the next device? LG doesn’t seem to have the best reputation for devices yet.
