galaxy note

Three new devices joined the T-Mobile guard today: two phones and one phablet.

mytouch 1 mytouch 2 mytouch 3.

First, the new Huawei myTouch has hit the stores, with a price of $49.99 on a new 2-year contract accompanied by the following specs:

  • 4-inch "high-res" screen
  • 1.4GHz CPU
  • Bluetooth
  • 1500mAh battery
  • 4G

The device is available in black and dark red varieties; if you're after a bargain, you might want to head over to Wirefly, where you can get both colors (black and red) free.

Next, the myTouch's keyboard-wielding cousin, the myTouch Q, also went on sale. Its price is $49.99 as well, and its specs appear to be identical except for the aforementioned addition of a QWERTY keyboard. Another similarity is its availability at Wirefly: both the white and black versions are free.

Lastly, Samsung's now-infamous 5.3-inch phablet, the Galaxy Note, has also just become available. $249.99 (on a new 2-year contract, mind you) will buy:

  • 5.3" 800 x 1280 HD super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass
  • 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of internal memory, expandable via microSD
  • 8MP camera with 1080p HD video capabilities
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • 2,500 mAh battery
  • 178g (6.28 ounces)
  • 5.78" x 3.26" x 0.37"
  • Android 4.0 with Samsung's latest TouchWiz UX
  • 4G
  • 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi

Wirefly's discount, while not quite as extravagant as with the myTouch handsets, is still worth taking into account: the online retailer is selling the device for $230 ($20 off). A questionable purchase considering the recent release of the Nexus 7 - but hey, the decision's yours to make.

      Companies must be crazy to still use old versions of Android. Why the hell do they not use 4.1 which has Project Butter to improve performance. I recently got a old Motorla Defy which was horribly laggy under 2.2. But I used CM10 on it and performance increased significantly. Lag only comes up occasionally when I have multiple apps open or do fairly intensive stuff. Dead Trigger, though, runs flawlessly and without lag on it.
