Hands On With The New T-Mobile myTouch & LG Optimus T

After making an appearance yesterday at CTIA Fall 2010, the folks over at Engadget caught sight of the new myTouch and went hands on with this bad boy. Sadly, the handset was a hardware prototype so they weren’t able to play around with the device, but they did manage to get a plethora of pics, including some comparisons with its predecessor, the myTouch 3G Slide. As for first impressions of the hardware, Engadget claims the device feels fairly solid, featuring a neat design with a metal battery cover and a camera button on the side. Additionally, the new myTouch also includes a set of three copper contacts on the side which will most likely be used for a landscape dock accessory. Be sure to check out the full gallery here!

Also on display was the upcoming LG Optimus T, which was officially unveiled yesterday. In short, the handset is solid and outperforms most of the low-end Android phones currently on the market. T-Mobile will offer the LG Optimus T in two flavors, purple and black. And what seems to be the most interesting tidbit, Engadget found mobile hotspot functionality and WiFi calling while scrolling through the settings of the handset. This shouldn’t come as a surprise at all, considering we called it back in late September. Check out the full hands on and image gallery here!
