Galaxy S II vs HTC myTouch 4G: Similarities Seen

We’ve known for the last few months that Samsung’s Galaxy S II has racked up a huge amount of interest, with many in America still waiting for its release. For the rest of us who have sampled the new Galaxy generation, its fair to say that on the whole we are impressed, although a few of you turned to networking site Twitter about a week ago to air your good and bad comments on the handset.

But the competition is still heating up with a new handset just announced today, that of the T-Mobile HTC myTouch slide 4G. Ok, so it may not be positioned into the same spectrum as the Samsung offering, but its definitely worth taking note of. Similarities to be seen include, running on Android’s 2.3 Gingerbread, 8MP rear camera which has already been compared to that on the new Nokia N9, and news of a Snapdragon 1.2GHz dual-core processor.

According to gsmarena.com, the HTC myTouch hasn’t arrived as of yet, but a US site has just been announced with the handset “as coming soon.” Amongst the specs already mentioned, it will include a smaller 3.7-inch S-LCD display, full QWERTY keyboard, full high definition 1080p video recording and so on.

On release, it will be available in two colors, that of Khaki and White and in terms of price, will set you back in the region of $199.99 on a two-year contract, but as to a stand-alone price, we will have to wait and see.

With a smartphone market already filling up to the rafters, can you see a place for the new HTC myTouch 4G running on T-Mobile? Would you be tempted over the Galaxy S II or even the Nokia N9 with camera similarities? Let us know.
