Very Capable Phone
Probably the best phone I've ever had. I've used other smart phones based upon Windows Mobile as well as the Iphone.
The Android OS is extremely customizable and responsive. I don't have to wait for apps to load. An additional benefit for me as a programmer is that I can easily write my own app and integrate it into the system. (try that on an iphone)
I love the ability to hit the speak now on the search button and instantly speak what I'm looking for (eg. "Directions to Applebees") and it turns my words into text (Speech to text technology) and there is my search.
For use as a GPS device, you can't beat GPS + Google Maps. Add in Street View, Satellite view and you have one powerful GPS device.
App Store: Not only is the apps I want there, but there are multiple versions giving you the ability to pick and choose. You can easily find reviews on applications as well as the star rating to help you determine which app is right for you.
Camera: Strong camera, but I still prefer using a regular digital camera. I have a 12MP camera, why would I use one on my phone? However, I did take a few pictures on the phone to see how good the camera is and to be honest, it's best I've seen for a phone.
Video Viewing: No stutter at all on both videos stored on the device or from youtube.
On Screen Keyboard: I've typically stuck with phones with a built in full querty keyboard. This is the first time I choose a on screen keyboard. Took me a day or two to get used to and I like it.
Bottom Line: If you like Smart Phones, this is a good phone for you. If you're a programmer, I'd suggest this phone as well. If you are tired of being "punished" on the AT&T network by paying more just for using an IPhone.. this is a great phone. Also over the IPhone, Android supports multiple running programs at the same time.
CONs: Buy the black model. I'm not too keen on this white oneRead full review

T-Mobile myTouch 3G
As a previously wireless retail seller for more than 6 years, I am writing this review in comparison to the BlackBerry Curve that I've been using for more than 2 years. With that said, I will certainly miss the applications available to myTouch since I plan on reselling it. I miss the "realtimeness" compared to the Blackberry. There are many free application downloads available to HTC's myTouch 3G, or the Android operating system for this matter. Google Sky Map is the coolest of all. By using GPS satellite positioning, it displays stars/planets coordinate information in real time by pointing to any direction. So after 3 weeks of use with myTouch 3G, here are the Pros and Cons listed below in my opinion:
-Avaialbe Apps for the Android OS (Lots of free downloads)
>-Fast 3G Network connection when 3G is availabe to my T-Mobile service
-Excellent resolution for video display and games
-OpenHome/AHome skins allow great customization flexibility
-Voice recognition system is fairly accurate in dectection of speech
-Poor Battery Life (Must turn off 3G/Bluetooth/Wireless Location in order for the phone to last a full day of use)
-Emails can only be syncronized with server instead of push email
-No internet tethering feature
-OS performance can suffer from applications previously loaded or desktop icons (App Killer can fix this problem)Read full review

T Mobile My Touch 3G
Nice fluid no lag
first gen of mytouch/32b in the US, nice stock Android interface to fully customize to your likeing/needs. widgets makes things easy simple and faster to access and or use/view. The new MyTouch fender or 3.5mm aka 32a they come stock in europe with HTC Sence. Sence interface way nicer but Stock Android also nice there for giving it a 4... 5 because here in the USA we dont get the HTC Sence.
Ease Of Use-4.5
Very easy to use and get started very orangized clean simple.
using 3g will affect the battery with a lot of heavy use but get u thru the day with things like dimming the screen, not using wifi, or bluetooth.
growing everyday new market way better than 1.5/cupcake one. apps for just about anything. Free ones as well as paid nice cheap not to costly.
when u get bored with your phone you get look into gaining root access and a how to on utube with this u can try out Sence roms tether to ur laptop makes phone much better!! best part most info is available on the T Mobile Fourms only other phone i would buy is Fender edition and Nexus one.. One of the Top 5 smart phones on my list.
Ratings BAsed off 0-5 5 being the best!Read full review
