Designed by HTC, myTouch 3G features a 3.2-inch HVGA touch-screen display and virtual keyboard that orients automatically from portrait to landscape mode in most applications. It also features a 3.2-megapixel camera, a music player with a preinstalled 4-GB microSD memory card and enhanced video capabilities to make it easy for users to record and share pictures and videos via e-mail, MMS, YouTube and Picasa. The device's mobile Web experience is supported by both Wi-Fi and T-Mobile's 3G network.

"With myTouch, HTC and T-Mobile are delivering not just a new phone, but the ability to create a uniquely personal product experience on top of a remarkably strong feature set," Jason Mackenzie, vice president of HTC America, said in a statement.

T-Mobile myTouch 3G also offers several multitasking capabilities and one-touch access to Google services such as Google Search by voice, Google Maps with Street View, YouTube and Picassa. It also offers access to both personal and corporate e-mail, including support for Microsoft Exchange, Gmail and most other POP3 and IMAP e-mail services, as well as synchronization with Google contacts and calendars.

It also offers instant messaging support for Google Talk, AOL, Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger.

Additionally, users can pull down the window shade notification bar by dragging their fingers down from the top of the screen to display message previews and other at-a-glance notifications.
