myTouch 3G HD Rendering Appears Again, This Time Shows Off The Back

There were definitely some mixed reactions with the surprise arrival of the first myTouch 3G HD shots. Some loved it, some loathed it and some just thought they were plain out fake. While we can’t say much, we know that both Engadget and AndroidCentral received the image so we’re hoping someone wanted to spread the joy rather than spread falsehoods. That being said, this time we’re back with our own addition to this story with the above image, the backside of the reported myTouch 3G HD.

For your enjoyment we’ve also added in a non-watermarked edition of yesterdays original image so you can all take a closer look. We’ll stay with the idea that the image is indeed real with the myTouch logo again appearing on the backside. Quite a few of you took notice of the myTouch logo placement appearing below the earpiece on the front side of the device, typically where the T-Mobile branding would go. As this appears to just be a rendering, it’s likely that a production run device would swap the logo placement with T-Mobile branding. Hopefully we’ll find out soon enough!

    i don’t think that is the phone on the HSPA+ website because the one there, if you look at the top and the bottom they are flat but the mytouch HD’s IS CURVED. and that button on the mytouch HD doesn’t match the one on HSPA+ website. T-mobile just launched the mytouch slide a month ago why would they launch another one and call it a revolution. EITHER THOSE PICTURES ARE FAKE OR THEY ARE REAL AND THE MYTOUCH HD WILL COME OUT BUT LATER.thats my opinion.. i hope its true because i really don’t like the my touch lineup.

    • bigbreasted man

      Man what are u talkin about. the picture you talkin about looks like a ipad

      • Mahmoud

        i think you need glasses so go see your doctor
        go to and you will see what i the mytouch HD to that phone on that website and you will see that they are different phones.

    • 123Cac

      The button does match, you just have to turn the phone the otherway and you’ll see it match. And its not another myTouch Slide, its just another myTouch phone to add to the myTouch Line. And why would they launch another one ? Well maybe their replacing the Sidekick line with myTouch.

      • Mahmoud

        I still think its the g1 blaze that is the HSPA+ device on that website because it makes more sense.
        1)They stopped selling the G1
        2)They said its a revolution
        3)Its been 2 years since the G1 launch which i think was November,2008 and November is right around the corner.
        4)Costumers contracts that bought the G1 are ending and T-mobile doesn’t want to lose them to Verizon who is launching the Droid 2
        5)The name G1 Blaze fits HSPA+ then mytouch 3g HD because calling it 3g will make people think it reaches only 3g speeds but blaze sounds better better
        6)They had the word Vanguard in the website’s source and the changed to hspa when people found out so they are hiding it.

      • kurtis

        you don’t need to turn the phone the other way. if you look at the new picture of the back of the phone, you will see there are 2 buttons.. one on each side. or that’s what it looks like to me. i’m trying to figure out what the button on the left side of the phone would do though.. when of course the button on the right would be for the camera.

      • J-Hop2o6

        @Curtis — USB port

      • davidohio

        there is no button and that is not supposed to be an outline of a phone. You are all so funny scrambling to match the shape of the generic square on that site to a device. I think that thing you call a button is a shadow and you are driving yourselves crazy trying to figure it out. We will all know soon enough so lets stop arguing over an outlined square with a shadow. lol

  • Antonio

    the mytouch logo on this phone has the same placement as the logo on the front of the mytouch slide. this one has the whole phrase “mytouch” and the slide only has the stylized “my” but its pretty much the same thing.

  • tipsofme

    I’m so glad this phone might come out. Takes care of the “I don’t care” crowed of people that want led flash and FCC. Otherwise they “don’t care” about what the phone really offers. Enjoy it!

  • tipsofme

    PS I hope it has the bigger GBs and the wifis……….

    • pimpstrong

      And the internets.

    • fish

      I’m at work in the bathroom doing number 2 trying so hard not to laugh

      • Craze

        Um nobody really cares. Take that business and sell it to someone else.

    • Zoog

      I want the three gees!

      and teh kickstandz


      • dar

        and i wants no mor of teh non-SENSE hehe

      • Presto117

        that’s not what the joke is about. it’s from a video and these are all references to said video. yours isn’t.

  • CUrb

    I’m pretty confident this phone will have…

    4.0″ Super AMOLED Display
    1.5GHz Dual Core Processer
    12.0MP Cam w/1080p video recording, night mode and a Xeon Flash
    Android 3.0
    3.5mm headphone Jack
    Bluetooth 4.0
    32GHz On board Storage, expandable to 64GHz
    Mini HDMI Out
    Stero Speakers
    Preloaded with like 10 HD Movies
    DLNA Compliant
    A builtin Pico Projector (upto 84″ screen in 1080p)
    SWYPE Preloaded
    Optional slide out QWERTY Keyboard (same slim profile)

    Yep…maybe some more features, but let me think about them before I continue…

    • TheLight

      no xenon flash..look at the back view

      • TheLight


      • CUrb

        Its a new aged Xenon Flash, something no one has seen yet its looks exactly like a LED Flash but its not. It removes redeye and decreases the whiteout effect…This carema will break the mold…it has like 24x optical zoom and everything!

    • dee

      i wish thats a dream phone

    • cirrob

      if htc is making this phone it will NOT have super amoled screen. samsung wont be able to produce enoguh for anybody but samsung at the moment. will be a few years before they have that capability. by that time there will be a new screen tech available.

    • meee

      Theres no way there will be bluethooth 4.0 since bluetooth 3.0 has just rolled out to recent devices. No projector. 32 ghz? whats that? if you mean 32 gb then thats possible. I wouldnt even want 10 hd movies built in. Android 3.0 isn’t going to happen this early. 12 mp camera by htc is unlikely. If you look at the picture, it doesn’t look like one. even a 1.5 ghz processor is unlikely, but I hoping for it. This looks like 2011 specs

      • Carl

        He is clearly exaggerating… Android 3.0 is also a long ways away.

    • Zoog

      You forgot the Blu Ray.

    • Cat


      that’s exactly what I want this….I am deaf a guy. If tmo must release at late august. I’d rather buy 4.0? Super AMOLED Display
      1GHz – 1.5GHz Dual Core Processer
      12.0MP Cam w/1080p video recording, night mode and a Xeon Flash
      Android 2.2 – 3.0
      3.5mm headphone Jack
      Bluetooth 4.0
      32GHz On board Storage, expandable to 64GHz
      Mini HDMI Out
      Stero Speakers
      Preloaded with like 10 HD Movies
      DLNA Compliant
      A builtin Pico Projector (upto 84? screen in 1080p)
      SWYPE Preloaded
      Optional slide out QWERTY Keyboard (same slim profile)

      Yep…maybe some more features, as TMO will listen what hardcore adult people want!

      • Zoog

        You forgot wireless usb.

      • B

        The other guy was being sarcastic. I hope you are too. 32GHz on board storage lol

    • 2FR35H

      Lol keep on dreaming CUrb

      a built in pico projector and 10 HD movies? and bluetooth 4.0? lol im pretty sure thats not going to happen for at least another 1 to 2 years. Companies other than samsung are still on 2.0 bluetooth and android 3.0 prolly won’t be released till next year. The most sd memory any phone can do is 32gb’s currently maybe a year or 2 expandable memory could increase to 64gb’s

      in a year or 2 though your dream device would probably run you about $1500 off contract

    • Nokia N900USER

      Let me counter you and see whose right when specs come out:
      4″ LCD screen (shortage of AMOLED)
      800 mhz Dual core (watch the slow ones think it will be slow because of mhz number)
      8 megapixel camera (for those megapixel folks out there, it doesnt really matter. You could have a phone with 5 megapixel with a nice sensor that will produce a much better pic quality than a 8 mp camera.
      Bluetooth 3.0 ( I know the radio parts are getting released late 2010Q4 so theres no way this phone gets it)
      Mini HDMI out (I agree with you on this one)
      16 Gb storage (sorry folks, this will bring prize down)
      512 MB RAM
      No DLNA (lol)
      Swype is definitely on it
      HSPA+ obviously
      And deal breaker is no nice GPU allocation

    • Battman

      CHEERS TO THIS……. Let The appropriate Person in T Mobile’s corporate decide it might just be worth it……….

    • Presto117

      I really, really hope this is a sarcastic comment….

  • Ant

    If you look at the silhouette on the HSPA+ website there is some type of plug in port (bottom left) that can be seen slightly (bottom right due to phone being flipped over) on the new back view picture that leads me to believe this is the device being shown.

  • CUrb

    You know what they need to make is like a 8-12mp ffc that has an adjustable lens so that when you place the phone on its back and use the pico projector you can video confrence and have the ffc be able to point in any direction so you can sit down and have it face you. I have no idea if anyone understood that, but I know what I’m talking about…god damn I’m bored at work today!

    • immadroid

      “help me obi wan kenobi, you’re my only hope”

  • red_slide

    Wow im considering bout getting this phone. and selling my slide. lol the phone looks actually nice the back is sexy. looks super thin. :)

  • jazzmanmonty

    it better have night vision built in on both cameras and if it doesn’t have a kickstand, then its a POS.

    • CUrb

      Oh my god, how did I ever forget the kickstand!!! That is quite possibly the best phone invention since the camera was built in!

  • threetee14

    wow… the comments in here are just too much sometimes.

    first off, i think the 3.7 size is a perfect size for a phone. It’s the exact size the nexus one is and everybody loved that and still do. I held and tested out the droid x and…. let’s just say, if i wanted a tablet, i’d get the iPad (or wait for the galaxy S tablet). I mean, seriously, it’s like people are forgetting that these are phones, those huge phones are not practical…IMHO.
    Also… has it been confirmed to be using 1st generation snapdragon..???? i don’t think so, so pls for the love of humanity everyone calm down.

    All in all, I think that this is the perfect phone for people who missed out on google’s nexus one or didn’t want to deal with Google’s shady customer service.

    I want this phone. Now.

    • CUrb

      I hope you werent reffering to me, because I’m so full of Sh** I don’t know what to do. I just love all these people that demand every feature known to man on a phone or they won’t let their first generation Nokia go, because nothing is good enough…it just kills me.

  • Barry

    Yea cause night mode will help you with that late night video phone sex and that kickstands means another free hand *wink wink* you people are nuts

    • CUrb

      So you’ve been watching *wink wink*

  • Barry

    Yea cause night mode will help you with that late night video phone sex and that kickstands means another free hand *wink wink* you people are nuts lmfao

  • cellswag05

    t mobile nexus. Done

  • Xajuran

    If they work the OS like they did expresso for the slide, its bound to be a winner. I love the slide, and think that there will indeed a market for the latest member of the mytouch family, namely something with somewhat better hardware and no keyboard. Ffc or not. Better hardware does not always a better phone make though. Look at the vibrant. Sure its nice, but the slide is so much better of a phone overall. A snappy well designed keyboardless phone with good OS enhancements FTW!

  • mailman13877

    Lol why don’t they just put both night vision n flash to please everyone?The back reminds me of the Nexus one cuzz the battery cover style. TMO better hurry with the spec leak before Evo restocks. This phone is indeed a SUCCESS if the image n speculation from the image bout flash n ffc stays true. I Like the look of this one. Evo is starting to vanish from my thoughts slowly with this leak. Hurry up n restock Evo

    • Davidohio

      Mailman please stick to your original plan and go to Sprint.

    • Relikk2

      Here is a good video comparing the power of the recenent phones. It shows the Evo getting spanked by every new smart phone on the market including the Nexus one.

  • bigbreasted man

    i just hope and pray it has a 4.3 display with a fm radio app

    • CUrb

      How about a builtin AM/FM radio (so I can listen to baseball on the AM), HD radio, and sirus XM radio built in. Then make a double din docking station (with CD/DVD) for my car and I will just use it in my car instead of buying a new deck. I think I have created a super phone!

  • Barry

    I was referring to jazzmanmontey’s ridiculous post. but ugh if you provide the venue and the opportunity presents itself I may be tempted to sneak a peek *wink wink* lmao ok I’m done. I’m sorry I just don’t understand why ppl speculate so much with nothing really to go on. Seems like everyone wants more and more and get it for cheap idk. But it should be a limit on idiotic post per article. May have to holla at David about that…lmao

    • jazzmanmonty

      just a little sarcasm there barry, dont get ur panties in a bunch. :)

    • CUrb

      Yeah no doubt. These companies would go out of business if they offered everything to everyone for 1 penny. I would pay some damn good money for some of these phones, but hey one can dream right!?

  • Barry

    *off topic* Phillies got Roy Oswalt !!! :-)

    • CUrb

      I saw that…really halladay, hammels, and oswalt on the same team…rediculous!!!

  • Barry

    Yea baby just gotta catch those Braves.

    lol Idk some people on here say off the wall stuff like that and be dead serious lol Just thought I’d have some more fun with it lol

    • CUrb

      yeah I’m not that serious about the phones. I really am ready for an upgrade. I got the G1 on pre-release, then I decied to save some money, so I downgraded to a POS Nokia, but I’m ready for something good now that I have my upgrade due, but I’m not really in a rush…hell I might just get the vibrant who knows?

  • Barry

    same here had the G1 got the MyTouch need something more powerful and that vibrant keeps calling me. I think this is the week to get it.

  • cellswag05

    Looks like nexus. Could be a new my touch a real my touch 2. Hopefully its a true jump ahead of the first my touch. But it also may be the nexus one for tmobile….they did just stop selling them online.

  • CUrb

    Ive played with it in the store and all I can say is WOW!! The only problem I have had with it (being the big A/V guy that I am) is no Mini HDMI. I would love to have that feature, I know you can use the 3.5mm jack, but its not HD and HDMI is a far more advanced technology…other than that the Vibrant is a go, but if the specs come out on the next new super phone and it doesn’t have a Super AMOLED its definatly a go.

  • K. Ray

    This could be vanguard. Time will tell. Let’s see what happens in the next 45dys.

  • http://tmonews BenNYC

    Is that a front facing camera on the right top side? I see the sensors on the left top.

  • Tony

    it has a front facing camera!!! so indeed its gonna be a HSPA+!

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      That’s right… That’s one of the reasons why T-Mobile would charge people more monthly for an HSPA+ phone, assuming that on a T-Mobile phone one could make video calls without being on WiFi.

      Making live video calls from the phone, without being tethered to WiFi, would be a great feature justifying an extra monthly charge.

      And it would send Apple into a ditch with its video calling, that must be tethered to a network. Imagine the T-Mobile ads, showing people making video calls anywhere, while the competitor’s video calls can only be made from home, for example.

      This would really be something and if this HSPA+ phone will allow true video calling from a cell phone, anywhere at any time, this will be big for T-Mobile. And Jobs is going to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge after seeing the first T-Mobile ad.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        that was doable around 6 years ago. Thats why I want a ffc. I’ve been wanting one since the Nokia N95 which is one of the devices that can do vixeo calls without being on wifi. The Entire Nseries line minus the Ngage can do it. There’s vodeo’s on youtube showing this. The N900 is a phone with Tmo 3G frequencies so Tmo already specifically has a phone that can do video calls without wifi.

        Yeah a Ffc would suck if you can only do it over wifi. The Evo can do video calls without being on wifi as well. And apple’s crappy video call service blocks any other phone from videocalling an iphone 4. pitiful. Since the N95 (at least to my knowledge) you could make video calls to anyone with a Ffc over any network without the need for wifi.

        After knowing that they have been doing videocalls without wifi or superfast speeds, I don’t think that would warrant a charge for HSPA+ IMHO.

  • pimpstrong

    I want a 10″ myTouch Tablet with a Sidekick style swing out Keyboard thats got Capacative touch keys, have dual 3D 16.5 Megapixel cameras, Quad Dual core processors that are the size of a grain of salt(each), wireless audio that transmits directly into my brain, has transforming capabilities so I can turn it into a truck and let my son play with it and it MUST grant me 3 wishes otherwise its a deal breaker and another “Tmo Fail”

      good stuff lol

      Oh so you’re talking about Project Emerald…gotcha…I thought you were looking for a nice phone…my bad!

      and Again Sprint’s gonna 1up us because theirs will grant 4 wishes. Darn You Tmobile!!! haaa!!

  • kudo

    looks good, hopefully we hear something about this soon. need to replace my g1 asap, this may keep me from getting the evo.

  • Exec4Future

    durrrrrrr… for the fifth time, MyTouch line is replacing Sidekicks. sidekicks are gone. forever. say bye. so just like we saw a million different sidekicks(which were all essentially the same software, just slightly upgraded hardware), we will now see a million different mytouch variations. i am sick of mytouch already though. the hardware looks cheap and plasticky in almost every iteration.

    • CUrb

      Damn those myTouch people…makin you buy a phone you hate! You should talk to those people with Apple and make them make you buy an iPhone, or maybe those people at verison and have them make you by a version of the Droid…they would be much better!

    • chotpy

      Didn’t the sidekick look MORE plasticky?

      Look at all the sidekicks. compared to that, mytouch phones aren’t bad.

  • mingkee

    It looks pretty close to nexus one.
    Perhaps I have to skip Vibrant and opt for this if it had 512 RAM and 8GB or higher internal storage.

  • phatsaxx

    All I got to say is that this thing better have a snapdragon processor and some sort off flash. Honestly this may be tmos updated version of the nexus one with hspa

    • Presto117

      A Snapdragon? Snapdragons are old and out-dated, but I guess that would fit the myTouch line ;) The OMAP processor running in the Droid X is faster and the Hummingbird running in the Galaxy S is the fastest.

  • Barry

    @CUrb there supposed to be a way that Samsung is making the Jack into a HDMI out through a software update something like that try and Google it I was reading about it the other day.

    • pimpstrong

      Just looked it up and that is AWSOME! Shoulda made Tmonews news it is that good. Another reason why the Samsung Galaxy S line is top notch and deserves more respect than its currently receiving. Vibrant FTW!

    • CUrb

      I saw something on the net about it, but having taken HDMI training I know that it will not be approved and HDMI certified, more of a temporary patch. It works pretty well from what I can see, but HDCP restricts playback of full length movies such as the preloaded Avatar through the 3.5mm jack. I’m just looking for a little more with that, and being that it is Samsung, it won’t be long until full HDMI compliance is adopoted on their devices. They have really solid hardware.

      • CUrb

        Check that I just saw the MicroUSU to HDMI that you are talking about and it might be a viable solution. The only questions are…what is the compliance level of the cable? Why and how did Samsung convince HDMI to use this cable without the strict uniform specifications that HDMI holds all manufactures and/or adopters?

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    In my best Beavis and Butthead imitation I say: “Heh… heh… you said backside.”

  • Barry

    well HTC’s new screen render is slcd and one review I read said some angles it looks better than amoled and other angles the amoled looks better but, the review said neither have anything on the samoled

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      That’s correct Barry.

      People should not confuse AMOLED with SAMOLED. SAMOLED is far superior.

      Moreover, what sets the Samsung Galaxy S apart from other phones is its GPU graphics processing unit).

      Specifically, the Vibrant’s dedicated graphics capability comes from Samsung’s S5PC110 applications processor (which pairs a 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 core with a PowerVR SGX540 GPU).

      As I keep saying to anyone who will listen, LOL, the Galaxy S GPU can handle 90 million triangles per second. (That’s awesome IMHO).

      Compare that with the Nexus One, powered by Qualcomm QSD8×50 (22 million triangles/sec) and iPhone 3G S, powered by the 600 MHz Cortex-A8 with PowerVR SGX53 (28 million triangles/sec). As I said before, I have yet to look up and therefore don’t know the specs of the iPhone 4, but I assume its better than the 3G S.

      Since HTC can’t get SAMOLED displays until at least March 2012 and Samsung isn’t about to sell its processors to HTC, there’s no way HTC’s new HSPA+ phones will compare to the Vibrant’s spectacular graphics, IMHO of course.

      • pimpstrong

        SAMOLED is sick and I still can’t believe its True Black Contrast Ratio. Nothing beats it

      • alex32

        i was wondering, how much do you think hspa+ plan would cost for unlimited internet?
        as of now its 25$ for an unlimited android you think when an hspa+ phone releases..itll be 30$?

        whats your take?

      • ItsMichaelNotMike

        Well it’s whatever T-Mobile thinks the market will bear. Since T-Mobile will always want to be the low priced leader I suspect it will match Sprint, an additional $10 monthly for an HSPA+ phone.

        That all sounds reasonable to me. Tiered pricing is a concept carved in stone from the old days of traveling, first cabin down to steerage. In other words people expect to pay more for more.

        Besides, $10 to $20 more for HSPA+ is quite reasonable considering what one gets for that price.

        Sidenote: I thought T-Mobile’s data plans were not $30 to $35. Isn’t $25 and lower what all us “old” customers are paying? If new customers are paying $35 for 3G, I suspect that T-Mobile would like them to be paying $40 to $45 for HSPA+. That’s a healthy some to get in addition to talk (which T-Mobile will be practically giving away in a few years, as data becomes the thing to have with a smartphone. Look to see unlimited talk at about $20 in 2012, but only if you have a “premium” data plan. Which brings to mind, I wonder what T-Mobile will call its HSPA+ service, “warp speed” “hyper speed” “super speed” who knows).

      • alex32

        well i recently got a mytouch slide and i am paying 25 a month for it
        i am one of the old loyal customers with a grandfathered plan, so i imagine for an hspa+ phone id pay 35 bucks
        if tmobile really wants to beat sprint they have to go for an extra charge of 5 dollars, but we’ll see

      • lxAMNxl

        Actually, if the Samsung Galaxy S does have DDR2+ then it will utilize the GPU to it’s full output. However, I doubt it utilizes DDR2 at all, so you’ll probably get a third of those 90 million triangles. People seem to forget that a component doesn’t work solely by itself, just like computers. Moreover, the word bottleneck comes into play.

        Furthermore, the high GPU for Android is sadly not used to its full potential since the OS does not utilize graphic acceleration, hence the usage of high clocked processors needed. The sadder thing is that there are but a few games for the Android market that use the GPU to accelerate the graphics/game.

        In conclusion, Android needs more processor power and/or better processor architecture to run smoothly. The higher GPU is just a plus.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        I doubt that Maggy will charge for HSPA+. HSPA+ isn’t a new technology like 4G, all hspa+ is, is just a boost in speed kinda like when Maggy went from EDGE to 3G.

        Now Sprint charges extra for 4G due to it being kinda like an add on but hspa+ will be built into some devices (not saying 4g is a piece that you plug into your phone, stick with me here). 4G is a different Type of Frequency Broadcast which gives them their speeds that requires more technology than just the Radio Towers thus the add on I was mentioning thus the reason for the extra charge.

        HSPA+ however will use what is already there and just massively boost speeds therefore resulting in no cost. If your device can handle HSPA+ speeds, it will most likely just transition over from 3G to HSPA+ just like people’s devices that could handle 3G automatically transitioned from Edge to 3G.

        There was an article on this site that had more detail about it but I can’t find it. At least that’s my thoughts on the matter but then you also have to factor in that Tmo is a business so they have to make $$$ so they may charge for it but if they do, I’ll stick to 3G. My bill is already $100/month for unlimited everything with taxes of course, I don’t need it to be any higher.

  • Barry

    Gotcha now I see what you’re saying when you say the new phones still wont be as good as the vibrant. Cause it has the best processor and screen available and no matter what comes out the screen will be inferior to w/e Samsung puts out…makes sense now.

  • Matador

    I am also in the same boat..I do miss having a trackball from MT3G, and even though this new HTC will have it, with MAYE a bigger screen with dual processors, it would be hard to pull me away from the Galaxy S screen…its waaay to nice.

    great, now the gps on my 3rd replacement hd2 wants to not work. If this device has the right specs and comes out soon, I will be replacing this hd2 with this while I wait on Emerald.

      AMOLED isn’t the best. SAMOLED is. Technically the iPhone 4’s is the best, but for what’s available to Android phones, SAMOLED it is.

    sorry i cant agree with any of you…..this phone, to me, is photo-shopped! i mean come on, this thing receives tons of complaints the other day about it being fake etc… and what do you know…..a new picture emerges, of the backside no less and its even a worse picture than the first (quality wise)!!! can you say splice, splice, cut n paste. besides , and im not a photo expert, but the shadowing looks all wrong here. the shadow on the ground indicates the light coming from the right side of the photo, yet the whole backside is shaded???think about it, if the light is coming from the right, the backside of phone would be lit, not shadowed!!
    just an opinion……..
    sorry, im not buying it. you guys blog all you want about this phone. im out!!!

      It’s a 3D rendering

      As in, still in design, not in production. Hence the non photo lookingness of it.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    people, the phone has two buttons on the bottom. One on the left and one on the right of the phone so the image still does fit. there is a hump on the other side that looks like a button placement.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      now whether it’s photoshopped or not, I’m not sure. I’m not good with knowing that yet. I kinda like the design, I just want to see specs before making my decision on whether to buy it or not.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      the only thing I don’t like about this phone is that it it waaayyyyy too much head space so if it is actually a 4+ inch screen, that top head area will add almost another inch of unnecessary space to it. Other than that, I kinda like the design of it. I’m still hoping it’s a 4.3 inch screen but seeing that headspace makes me think it’s 3.7.

  • vinny

    I use a Nexus One and think it’s still the best phone built today. Looking at all the new and very cheaply built devices coming out of the woodwork is pathetic. My next phone will be something with the same build quality as my Nexus and better look pretty damn good as well. It better have plenty of bells and whistles or it will be the Nexus One till something better comes along. IMO it needs plenty to beat the Nexus.

  • Barry

    That’s why I’m thinking it’s fake there is way too much up to for this to be of the HD2/Evo form factor so either its fake or 3.7″.Plus it looks stretched out lenght wise and rounder than the silhouette on the hspa+ page.

    @CUrb not really sure about how all that HDMI stuff works I’m still rockin sdtv lmao but you seem very educated about that and like you said I’m sure Samsung will figure something out. at the least in compliance to their own TV sets.

    just heard some great news about T-mobile for the 4th quarter and we are going to be ready to compete with the big boys!!!!!!!!!!!


      More info please

  • Wilma Flintstone

    here’s to hoping this is real and has some competitive specs.

    Thanks ItsMichaelNotMike, I was wondering when someone was going to mention that HTC is not getting SAMOLEDI anytime soon (nor anyone). (IMO) Unless you absolutly hate Samsung (and I know a good number of you do, Behold) the Vibrant is really the phone to have for the next year (or so). HSPA+ is cool but is overkill for current standard web veiwing. There is no way you could tell the difference between 7.5 and 22; youtube video’s will buffer exactly the same. The server will post way lower then both those numbers (saving bandwith). Also, dual core sounds great but is really a reason for the current selection of software available? The hummerbird works fine with multiple apps and I wonder about batterylife on a dual core cpu. And the kicker is that the current speculations of the new dual snapdragon’s GPU is producing 80 million triangles per second. That’s ten under the hummeringbird. So not only does the Vibrant have a better screen it also has better graphics capability then HTC next generation (IMO). FFC is dumb, but someone post who uses it; make me see its worth. The flash is worhtless to, as the Vibrant camera works better in the dark without one.

    On a side note, I still think it funny that samsung makes the Iphone4 CPU.

    Coverage of 3g sucks REALLY not dependable at all in MPLS MN area.
    Call tmo to check on it get different story from each rep.
    One says oh yeah some tower problems another rep says OH NO PROBLEMS being reported.
    What a lie, tmobile check your towers, we pay for the service and you need to DELIVER.

  • currator

    you guys just dont get it. something is going on for tmobile but they are not saying what. look at what we know. they are releasing several nice phones i hope this on is real 3.7 is a good size screen that htc droid everbody says is like the best droid ever only has a 3.7 size screen and this could be tmobile much better verision i.e. ffc. i mean the mytouch 3g slide gots what a 3.4 size screen what a joke. and that lg flagship phone coming dec has a 3.9 size screen. tmobile has stuff they are going to drop. remember this i dont think they have turned on the hspa+ ohhh and i know whats taking so long for chi town to get hspa+ i was reading att is using that area for testing i think lte so i am sure all the fiber is being run to there towers first and tmobile is on the back burner. other then that. i think tmobile with there super fast 3.5g is faster then everones lte that they are going to keep getting better 3.5g coverage and wiat to go lte when the back haul is truely possible as of right now 42mbps is it metro says something like 30 mbps and verizon is about as slow as att lte so tmobile is going steal alot of ther cust in areas with true hspa+ its all about the speed and with some nice phones you will see alot of people jump ship and come to tmobile. heck verizon reported a net loss of over 200 mil thats not good and there big gamble on lte they are spending over 2 billion on that to begin with and if that fails they are going to feel it

  • Mr MN

    I still don’t get how some people mistake this phone for the one in the picture on the hspa+ page. I gave it a good look and it wasn’t hard to see that the phone in that picture looks more like the Vanguard/G1 Blaze.
