T-Mobile USA on Wednesday officially launched its second Android-powered smartphone, HTC's MyTouch 3G, by taking pre-orders before its Aug. 5 mass release. Executives said they hoped the G1 sequel would knock some wind out of the sails of Apple's iPhone 3GS, and they predicted MyTouch would outdo the million-selling G1. "A vast majority of customers will be new to Android and new to smartphones," said T-Mobile Chief Technology Officer Cole Brodman.
