Many T-Mobile fans have blamed the Deutsch carrier for not getting their hands on the HTC Hero. T-Mobile had plans to release the myTouch Fender LE, but release had been pushed back to Q1 2010.
According to production files HTC had produced two different Magic phones. The PVT32A used 288 MB of RAM, while the PVT32B only had 192 MB of RAM.
The PVT32A had a 3.5 headphone jack, which is missing from the myTouch 3G. It was to come with a 16 GB microSD card filled with multimedia goodies.
Based on the specs, it’s better if Elvis just left the building. This phone will just seem REALLY outdated if it comes out Q1 2010. The beginning of the year will be all about 1GHz phones and though 528MHz has been tolerable come 3 month from now it will not.
One can only hope T-Mobile and HTC head back to the drawing board and comes out with something truly worthy of a Fender phone, not just a disguised Hero/myTouch 3G.
Ding! Idea, what if Android gets Guitar Hero or Rock Band. Then maybe the multimedia could interact with one of those games. That would be pretty sweet.
According to this chart designed by TMoNews the Fender LE is very similar in specs to the Hero.
