Well it looks like the rumors were true. T-Mobile will launch their new flagship phone the myTouch 4G on November 3rd for $199 with a 2-year contract. T-Mobile is saying they went with the myTouch 4G name to signify the 4G speeds that the HSPA+ phone offers but there is no word on if they will call the other carriers’ 4G bluff when referring to their network.
Pretty much all the details are exactly as we have been reporting, but we did learn that the custom HTC Sense UI we have been referring to as the Espresso UI is now called the myTouch UI. We also discovered that the myTouch 4G features the 3-second fast boot that has appeared on recent HTC phones.
November 3rd should be a pretty big day for T-Mobile as they will overhaul their data plans and also launch the Motorola Defy, Huawei Coment, and LG Optimus T.Show Press Release
