myTouch 3G HD Coming To T-Mobile?

Our week of surprising news continues this time thanks to the guys at Android Central who dropped a little bit of a shocker with the first image and basically first reporting of the myTouch 3G HD. Yesterday we “discovered” the existence of a holding page for the first HSPA+ T-Mobile phone which we thought had just been posted that day. Turns out we all were about a week behind as Phonescoop reported on the page a little over a week ago. I’m honestly not sure how almost all of us missed it but hey, it’s out there now and our attention turns to discovering just what phone are we waiting for. Thanks to you guys, our readers who right away went to work on the source code for the webpage discovered the word “Vanguard” tucked away. That brings us back to the Vision/G1/Blaze rumors, which supposedly, if rumors are true are one and the same as the Vanguard.

Now comes word of the myTouch 3G HD, clearly a welcome addition to the T-Mobile lineup, as the “HD” certainly sounds promising. Is this the mysterious HSPA+ phone that is silhouetted on the holding page? That we can’t say for sure, but the existence of the Genius button along with the myTouch branding certainly gives us all the hope in the world for a T-Mobile arrival. Now that we know this phone exists, we’re going to get to work on discovering everything we can and hopefully, maybe, this phone will grace us with HSPA+ and will be one of many to do so.

    Ok people ill spell it out how we all want it spelled out. As a g1 user I’ve held out on upgrades like most of us have because no other phone specs, as pleasurable as they may be, don’t saitsfy what we see coming on t on phones from other carriers. Some of us fed up, can’t hold out and give in, only to tind out a month later something awesome is coming out. And yet what comes out isn’t 100% satisfying. Tmobile is brilliant with marketing strategy and we can’t blame them for that. but here’s the problem. Yes, att releases smart phones but their main one is the the iphone. Tmo is trying to do the same along w htc promoting the hd2, which woulda been awesome if not for winmo and all the problems. I read a while ago an article where tmobile said they plan to release 20 new phones this year. Why???! Don’t dilute features for quantity of selection. This next month marks 22 months for us g1 owners. Tmo needs to take a break and sacrifice quantity for quality. These two new speculated phones (along with the unwanted iphone speculation) despite hspaplus, seem to already be disappointing. I don’t want to jump the gun but rumors have been accurate for the mostpart. I’m sure tmo does research on these types of sites, but they haven’t learned. Just give us one damn phone with all the up to date features we want. And yes a keyboard. Ppl bitch its too bulky, but w technology today, they have the means to make it slim our minds this is what we all want.a damn good phone that won’t be obsolete in 2 months. So give it to us tmo..just my two cents.. thans for reading.

      umm… the g1 came out in late october of 08 not august

      • RockTripod

        So August would be 22 months from October of 08. Derp.

      • chotpy

        …it came out in november.
        september is 22 mo.

  • odiots

    if you notice underneath the image it says the phone tops out at 14.4. but other say thats where HSPA+ begins…then this isnt a true HSPA+ device if it caps at the slowest HSPA+ speed.

    • bleedingmagenta

      seriously? Those are most likely real-world environment speeds. Not “perfect scenario” speeds. If you can get 14.4 in real-world with a normal data load on the network, WOOOO HOOOO come on MyTouch HD!!!!. To compare, ATT’s HSPA+ that they announced earlier this summer, will cap at 14.4 in a “perfect scenario”. So either way, if it tops out at that or not it will still kill anything out there, even the awesome (totally joking) EVO 4G!

    • jackthefur

      If 14.4 Mbps is where HSPA+ “begins” then it is technically an true HSPA+ compatible device, even if that’s the cap on the phone itself, and even if T-Mo’s network supposedly caps at an ideal 21 Mbps.

  • Nick

    Thanks but I’m extremely satisfied worth my vibrant… That looks kinda cheap anyway. Better have a good size screen and a fast processor. Had the first gen mytouch and it got real old. I work for customer service and haven’t heard anything about this.

    • Shawn

      You work for t-mobile customer service? You mind letting us know when samsung or t-mobile will break their silence on the Vibrant GPS problem? Is it hardware or software? Will a firmware update fix the issue?

  • TMOprophet

    I hate to say it, but if this is htc’s answer to the Vibrant.. sans the HSPA, I would rather have the Vibrant….I really hated saying that, but both will have 3.7in screens and 1Ghz processors, so since Sammy’s super amoled is unmatched right now and at least for a while, I would go with the Vibrant in this case.

  • now_onTMO

    ahh nice!
    it looks ike it has front facing camera too, but im real happy with my vibrant right now i cant even put it down.. err.. hehe

    how many “my touch” does tmo needs btw? this one looks nice though. and htc please use a better snapdragon processor this time.

    • bleedingmagenta

      dude that’s like saying how many IPhone’s does ATT need! It’s a FRANCHISE device, which means the lineup will stick around for awhile!

      • now_onTMO

        umm ya, you’re right.. but the iphones don’t get released within the same year.. LOL

        i guess it is tmo’s trademark device..

  • mailman13877

    If this phone has FFC,Flash n a nice size screen I will get it. That’s if the Evo doesn’t get me before the specs for this is confirmed. Now I’m getting excited to make a choice again between a possible top phone. WIN ME BACK TMO.

    • mailman13877

      Oh n have atleast 5MP with that flash.

  • bubbles

    This looks like a nice device. It looks like there is a ffc. I am happy with my vibrant. I hope they use something other than a snapdragon processor.

    • mailman13877

      Htc doesn’t do hummingbird so it will be snapdragon or the new smapdragon chips being worked on for future phones. I don’t see what’s wrong with snapdragon..they are fast enuff.

  • Roger

    Is it just me or does it look like it might have a front facing camera?

  • Kkairosan

    i highly doubt this thing will have a snapdragon processer. As far as I’m comcerned, it’s still A damn 3g phone. Front face camera? How many people will actallly use video phone? I hardly see no one sending me video txt messages anyhow. So why in the HELL would anyone actually value facetime feature. HSPA speed of 14.4 ? At the end of the day, a phone is a phone. Rather that be Andiod or Apple.

  • Nik

    It’s funny that I’m seeing so many people talking about how facetime is a gimick and how many people will actually use it, etc. I remember thinking the same thing back in the day when texting was first emerging. Now I text almost every day. I see every camera in a couple years having front facing cameras and making regular audio phone conversations obsolete. Facetime will be the new texting… mark my words people.

  • James

    I got so tired of T-Mobile. They just keep disappointing me. I had them for 5 years so I gave them more than a chance to keep me happy. But they failed at that so I went with Sprint and they are really better. No lie. And the Evo whoops any phones ass that T-Mobile can offer. The Evo is now the benchmark of phones, just realize and admit it.
