T-Mobile USA has announced the launch of a new smartphone, the Android-powered T-Mobile myTouch, which comes with support for the operator’s new ‘super-fast’ HSPA+ mobile broadband network. The T-Mobile myTouch enables sharing of photos and videos with the HD camcorder, supporting face-to-face conversations through video chat as well as the ability to offer 4G speeds on T-Mobile’s new network.

T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is now spread across 65 major metropolitan areas in the US, details of which are available on the company’s website. With its latest expansion, T-Mobile’s HSPA+ footprint now includes Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi; Denver, Colorado; Huntsville, Alabama; Knoxville, Tennessee; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Norfolk, Virginia; Omaha, Nebraska; Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona; Salt Lake City, Utah; San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland and Sacramento, California; and West Palm Beach, Florida. The company expects to reach 100 metropolitan areas this year.

With the myTouch’s front-facing camera paired with Video Chat through Yahoo Messenger or QIK, customers can hold video conversations with other T-Mobile myTouch users, or other compatible mobile device or PC.

The myTouch smartphone comes with three exclusive features – Genius Button, powered by Dragon Dictation from Nuance that lets users to call, text, e-mail or access the internet with a simple voice command; Faves Gallery that offers shortcuts to one’s most-contacted family/friends; and myModes that creates customized home screens for work and home.
