Dummy units of the Huawei myTouch phones (myTouch and myTouch Q) have started appearing in T-Mobile Stores pointing to the imminent launch of the devices on the carrier.
This is the inevitable phase in the life cycle of a phone in its journey to the market. First the phone comes out unofficially in leaked images or documents, and then we get an official announcement.
Once the official announcement is made, then it is the journey to the carrier.
Both myTouch and myTouch Q have 4 inch displays with a WVGA resolution. Both run on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS (that is so disappointing considering it is two editions behind the latest Jelly Bean OS) and feature a 1.4 GHz single-core processor.
The dedicated camera button on the devices allow users to access the 5 mega pixel rear camera. They also sport a front-facing camera.
One of the devices has a slide out full QWERTY keyboard, in landscape orientation. Users can have a look at this slide out keyboard since they are present in the dummy models too.
T-Mobile will have both myTouch models on stores beginning August 8 for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
