T-Mobile's myTouch 3G - aka HTC's Magic - has been launched in the US

As T-Mobile was the first network operator to launch a phone based on Google’s OS, consumers have been waiting anxiously for news about the operator’s second Android device – which will be available to order in advance next month.

The device - a re-branded HTC Magic - sports 3G connectivity, a 3.2in touchscreen display and a 3.2Mp camera.

A BlackBerry Pearl-like trackball has also been fitted to the phone for single-handed navigation, T-Mobile added.

The phone supports everything you would expect an Android phone to, including Google Talk, Maps and Android Market – an applications store akin to Apple’s App Store.

Three body colours will be available: black, white and “Merlot”. A 4GB Micro SD will be bundled with the phone, the operator added.

The myTouch 3G will “be available to pre-order for current T-Mobile customers” from 8 July, priced at $200 (£121/€144) – based on two-year contract. National availability will follow in August, but T-Mobile’s yet to disclose any more pricing or UK availability details.

Over here, T-Mobile has said it will offer the G1 Touch as its next Android phone. Is it the Magic - or Huawei's upcoming U8230? ®
