Huawei’s MyTouch for T-Mobile gets the hands-on treatment

The MyTouch label has seen better days: when Huawei's still-unofficial pair of phones become the latest member of the family, it will have changed to its third manufacturer in less than a year. T-Mobile still isn't saying when they plan to unveil the slate and QWERTY phone, but Engadget got a look at it in Huawei's home office in China. After a few minutes with the QWERTY version of the new MyTouch, they came away impressed - it's not going to set the world on fire, but it looks like a pretty solid mid-range phone.

Huawei’s MyTouch for T-Mobile spotted in the wild

We had heard previously that T-Mobile's reliable MyTouch brand would change into Huawei's hands later this year, and it looks like that's been confirmed. TmoNews got a sneak peek at the upcoming mid-range phone, with pictures snapped by some surreptitious tipster. The phone appears to follow in the footsteps of other MyTouch models with a decidedly mid-range design, running Android 2.3.6 (sigh). This incarnation of the MyTouch is without a QWERTY keyboard, though a different version may be in the works for a simultaneous debut.

T-Mobile switches to Huawei for next-generation MyTouch phones

Huawei has been making waves in the Android world for some time now, and according to PocketNow, they've got a new feather in their cap when it comes to T-Mobile. A new image has been found of a pair of new entries into the carrier's line of custom-branded MyTouch phones, presumably replacing the current MyTouch and MyTouch Q by LG. The MyTouch line has been T-Mobile's staple line for affordable mid-range devices since HTC launched it way back in 2009; assuming that these two phones are alone, that would make the second major change of manufacturer in less than a year.

Android Community Evening Wrap-Up: February 27, 2012

Since we're live at MWC, you've undoubtedly noticed the massive amount of hands-on articles we've managed to get up today. So instead of a wrap-up, this will consist more of a 'hands-on' summary of devices for our second day at MWC. First up, we got to glance at the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. We received a few snapshots with it alongside the original 5.3" Galaxy Note for an easy comparison. Usually you don't see devices ship with Adobe Photoshop, but the Note 10.1 will already include Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas - a few apps that cost $10 each on the Android Market.

Huawei Ascend D1 Q press photos leak

We've known that Huawei had something special planned for Mobile World Congress, and this would appear to be it. The first entry in Huawei's Diamond line is the Ascend D1 Q, and TechOrz.com got their hands on some leaked press shots prior to Huawei's conference. The renders show a typical high-end Android phone that's clearly of the large screen variety - probably with a 4.3-inch or larger display. The device's red-on-black color scheme is reminiscent of the HTC Rezound, though the shape looks more like a Galaxy-class smartphone.

ZTE Optik official: 7-inch 3G Honeycomb tablet for $99 on contract

The options for cheap tablets are increasing, thanks to Chinese manufacturers like ZTE. Their first entry into the American tablet market is the Optik, a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet bound for The Now Network starting this Sunday, February 5th. The Optik is roughly the equal of the Huawei Springboard (AKA MediaPad) over on T-Mobile, with one important distinction: it starts at just $99. Of course, to get that sweet price you'll need to sign a two-year contract for a data plan. This tablet is probably in the same family as the ZTE V66 we saw earlier.

T-Mobile sale: Amaze 4G, Springboard and G-Slate for just $49 this weekend

There have been a few sales going on over the holidays, but it looks like T-Mobile is out to beat them for the new year. The carrier is preparing a sale for this weekend, from Friday, January 6th through Sunday, January 8th. The sale is (perhaps not by coincidence) scheduled right before CES 2012. If you're in the market for a few specific Android models, you'll want to pay close attention. Without a doubt, the highlight of the sale is the current leader in T-Mobile's lineup, the HTC Amaze 4G, which will be reduced from $229.99 to just $49.99.

The 5 Best (and Worst) Android Devices of 2011

Ah, New Year's Day. A time for reflection and resolution, and in many cases, staying up too late in the company of good friends and large amounts of alcohol. Here at Android Community, we like to ring in the new year sitting quietly in wingback chair, staring contemplatively into a roaring fire and guzzling a $5 gallon of brandy while watching the Times Square ball drop on our Android tablets. Before we start getting the old DT's, we'll wrap up the best - and worst - devices of 2011.

Lenovo, ZTE and other Chinese OEMs band together to fight Android patent trolls

If you're tired of seeing all the patent lawsuit stories that pop up on Android Community, imagine how tired we are of writing them. We're not alone, and a group of Chinese manufacturers is reportedly joining forces to fight off the legal bulldogs from Apple, Microsoft, Oracle and the like. DigiTimes reports that Lenovo, ZTE and smaller manufacturers TCL, Coolpad and Konka have formed an alliance to jointly defend against corporate patent trolls in the huge and growing Chinese smartphone market.
