We know that T-Mobile has at least one Android phone coming this summer as T-Mobile CTO Cole Brodman said it would be out in early summer in an interview with MocoNews. Today, rumor from TMOnews (that they say is 98% confirmed) has the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G launching before the end of the month. That is right… not just “being announced”, but launching. I’m not sure if this is something we’ll hear at the HTC event in London since the MyTouch 3G is essentially a rebranded HTC Magic.
But it does bring up an interesting question – does T-Mobile have more than one Android phone planned this summer? The Samsung Galaxy is floating around out there and take this little blip from the MocoNews interview:
He wouldn’t say much else about the device, but it sounds like it has a high likelihood of coming from a new handset partner, like Motorola or Samsung, rather than from HTC, which manufactured the original T-Mobile G1. Brodman: “We’ll have multiple new Android devices—from multiple partners—this year.”
I’m guessing the HTC made T-Mobile MyTouch 3G will launch in June, or early July at the latest, with devices from other manufacturers possibly trickling in later this year. With last week’s launch of the Palm Pre and the upcoming launch of the iPhone 3GS, T-Mobile’s Androids suddenly have much more stiff competition.
