T-Mobile names next Android handset

Huawei's U8230 - or HTC's Magic?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

T-Mobile has announced the name of its second Android-based handset.

In a post on its Twitter page, the network operator announced today that the phone will be called the G1 Touch.

“Very excited! T-Mobile’s highly anticipated 2nd Android phone has been named the T-Mobile #G1Touch – more soon!” the post read.

T-Mobile’s first Android offering is the HTC-manufactured G1. The second one could be HTC's Magic, currently offered solely by Vodafone.

Google-based handsets are also in the works from Samsung and Vodafone, but given the G1 branding, it's likely T-Mobile's own-brand handset will come from HTC or a company like it.

Such as Huawei, which just yesterday confirmed that its first Android phone – known as the U8230 – will be available in the UK through T-Mobile during the third quarter.

Vodafone has an exclusive on the Magic, but it's not known when the period is due to expire.

Don’t forget to check out the Register Hardware’s full rundown of the U8230’s features – including its “full- and half-Qwerty” virtual keyboard – here. ®
