T-Mobile has announced the MyTouch, the company's second Googlephone, and on paper it is smaller, lighter and just plain better.
The MyTouch is essentially the same phone as the Google Ion, also known as the HTC Magic. The biggest change between the MyTouch and the original Android handset - the G1, also manufactured by HTC - is the physical QWERTY keyboard. It's gone, replaced by an-onscreen soft keyboard. It was ironic that the old G1 keyboard, the major differentiator between the iPhone and the first Google phone, was one of its biggest problems, featuring a large "chin" which would trip up all but the longest of thumbs.
