First In The Wild Shots Appear Of T-Mobile myTouch And myTouch Q Smartphones

We’ve been hoping to nab shots of both new myTouch by LG smartphones for the past few weeks and thankfully we’ve done just that. Well at the very least we managed to get one image each of the two newest additions to the T-Mobile myTouch signature line of smartphones. We’ve been warned these are pre-production versions of each phone however, so there could be some changes from the exterior hardware on the official launch devices.

The T-Mobile myTouch (seen above) has a 3.8″ touchscreen, 1GHZ processor, 5 megapixel camera and is 4G capable. The myTouch Q (seen below) has a 3.5″ touchscreen with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 4G and a 5 megapixel camera. The myTouch Q will come in both a gray and violet color schemes with the T-Mobile myTouch coming in both black and white.

Both devices are expected to arrive on November 2nd as part of a six phone launch taking place that day starting off the holiday season for T-Mobile.

      What does an old Mytouch have to do with these LG models, all others are HTC, I personally have not had a single problem with the mytouch 4g.

    as long as HTC does NOT continue to produce mytouch phones, stick with those great phones like the Sensation and Amaze, I’m ok with that.  I think T mobile may have a good idea here, give HTC the ability to really create GOOD products and bring the mytouch line in line with mid tier devices. 

    G2x was a big mistake, but HOPEFULLY with time it gets better.  Cyanogen 7.1 has been a REAL blessing for that device.  Buttery smooth…(outside of a minor bug)

      Cyanogen has been a Real Blessing to Android in General.

    I never understood why phones do not have dedicated number rows. Sign of the times when numbers are a secondary function on a phone

      Is there a GSM Variant of the Droid 3? Did they even do a “Milestone 3″ this time around?

  • http://twitter.com/ewells32 Eric wells

    To me, the MyTouch Q is just a revamped Mytouch 4G slide.  Why would T-Mobile feel the need to do another similar phone?

    Looks stupid….

    LG brand products , be it TV, phone, or anything else is considered lower quality and are always much cheaper than sony, samsung, toshiba , sanyo brands in asia!

    T-Mobile got the wrong LG phone, should gave gotten Optimus LTE, not Optimus FML.

    • J-Hop2o6

      … or Optimus FAIL.. lol, but this phone is mainly for the first time smartphone buyers & cheaper priced buyers.

  • Plankton

    Fools! You still insist on buying the bricks. Why, why why?

    I am rocking on my G2 running Droid running iOs. Thats right my minions converted it for me. What a dream! This thing rocks! Also have a Droid running it as well.

    Wish I could market this. Really shows the resposiveness of iOs.

    Davey boy….want one???

  • nerdlust

    About a year ago these would ve been considered high end. I think they are going to make great mid range phones. It sounds crazy but I have met a lot of people who don’t want or don’t care about highend phones. They just text, face book, games and web and maybe a call or two.

  • Frigadroid

    If you youngsters wonder why I’m such an old grump? Well I’ll tell ya why. Twenty years ago we had Steve Jobs, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope. Now we have no Jobs no Cash and no Hope!

        Takes one to know one. Its better to be an idiot with a sense of humor than just a common idiot like yourself Kelsey :-P

    • Jeremiah

      I think it’s quite clever actually. Very punny ;-)

  • count on me

    I work as a rep and geez has our customer care started to suck. Well actually just the automated system… Its almost impossible to get to a represenitive about general questions from a non employee phone

  • Yancy

    What is with everyone’s negitivity towards tmobile targeting mid to low range users as well as high end? I think they do a great job targeting all levels and have really compeditivly priced android phones!

    Although I haven’t used an LG smartphone besides the Esteem, I really enjoyed a little gem called the Dare, that was a sweet multimedia phone back in the day and the Esteem didn’t seem cheaply made even for a prepaid phone and the Optimus UI actually seemed pretty snappy using the same processor that’s in the MyTouch 4g which I am assuming is powering the new mytouches. I guess on the G2x they never should have made it vanilla android and kept the Optimus UI on it, I’m sure that’s what screwed it up so bad because I believe just like the G2 that looks like its vanilla really has some sense features in the framework.

    • Aznshortie3

      HTC will no longer make qwerty devices. Maybe that’s why they’re trying different companies. Next mytouch devices will be made by Huawei

      • weinerschnitzelboy

        First of all my post is 8 month old. Also, HTC announce they will no longer make qwerty devices on April of 2012. How in the world was I or anyone supposed to know a fact that was said 6 months after my post. Also, I already know the next Mytouch made by Huawei. A fact I discovered nearly 5 months after this post. Also, your comment does not benefit me in any way shape or form so why did you decide to comment on an article that is nearing 1 year old?

    These are low end smartphones… They look cheap and not very attractive…

      They will look attractive to all the immigrants that are flooding into T-Mobile stores.

        You know, its interesting you mention that.  Last time i was in a T-mobile store here in the Boston area everyone there didn’t speak English except the sales people and I.  The sales people seemed to have had a hard time helping the patrons because they didn’t have proper / valid ID’s they could use to verify their identities.  Not to mention the fact that they were totally rude to the salespeople, I suddenly wanted to cancel my girlfriends line for her after being told her phones warranty was voided because there was  a tiny microscopic trace of red on a liquid damage indicator (not an exaggeration, its barely noticeable… in fact the sales guy had to really really look at it to make a judgement call).  After that i realized t-mobile deserved CHURN!!! grrrr!!!!

      • Scag52

        thats all this company caters to is the immigrants…my store has all spanish, portuguese its getting real old, real fast

      • Chaos34

        That was ignorant of you…<_< smh
        Just shh

  • Respawn

    *gasp* THERE’S the myTouch 4G that my friend’s dog chewed up and hid on him! … Oh wait … He found it. And it still looks better.

  • Hkawczk

    Does it function as a hotspot without the additional fees?
