Today T-Mobile launched three new Android smartphones that go from entry-level all the way up to high-end. Even though some of the phones are being offered for free on contract, they all ship with the latest Android 2.2 (thanks!). Details, pricing info, and a shiny video after the jump.
It is nice to see T-Mobile launch three Android 2.2 phones on the same day. They are all great phones, but I would suggest the myTouch 4G as my top pick. Those looking for a lower-priced transitional phone should go for the LG Optimus T (which can be had for free if you order from T-Mobile.com). Don’t forget that T-Mobile just launched new data plans, so you can now use a smartphone for only $10 per month (200 MB limit on data).
HTC myTouch 4G: $199 on contract, $449 suggested retail price. Comes in multiple color options including black, plum, red, and white. This is the fastest HTC phone available, using Qualcomm’s new second-gen 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU with the Adreno 205 GPU. It also supports T-Mobile’s 4G network with speeds up to 14.4 Mbps.
Huawei Comet: FREE on contract, $199 suggested retail price. Highlights include stock Android 2.2, 2.8 inch QVGA display, 528 MHz processor, and 3.2 megapixel camera. This is a really solid Android 2.2 phone, but I would suggest something else which features a larger display.
LG Optimus T: $29.99 on contract, $239 suggest retail price. Highlights include Android 2.2, 3.2 inch HVGA display, 600 MHz CPU, 3 megapixel camera, and FM radio. This might be my favorite new pick for a low-priced Android phone. Hands-on report coming soon.
For some really great deals on a new phone, check out the Android and Me phone store. Our prices for phones on contract are cheaper than the carriers. If you are buying your phone off-contract, at full retail price, then go with your carrier’s online store.
The Motorola Defy is also now available on T-Mobile for $99 on contract, but it runs the outdated Android 2.1 and I can’t suggest it to anyone purchasing a new Android phone.
