Review: T-Mobile myTouch 3G
The Android browser is one area that has definitely seen some improvements, especially in the speed department. It is way faster than the G1 browser was on T-Mobile's 3G network. That's good news, really good news.
Android's default web browser is based on WebKit and can render full HTML web sites. The browser is very capable and looks fantastic on the myTouch screen. You can use your finger to navigate around screens, or use the trackball to zoom through them. You can zoom in and out, and perform basic browsing with the phone in portrait or landscape orientation.

My favorite new feature is that the browser lets you open multiple windows at a time. This lets you jump around between different web sites quickly. The browser also supports Google's MyLocation feature, which will help provide local results when you perform searches.
You can customize the myTouch about as much as you can customize any feature phone. Wallpapers and ringtones are easily altered. You can rearrange all of the menu items, clutter up the home screen with icons and more. What you can't do is change the basic theme of the myTouch, such as the color combinations of the menus and screens.
Also, T-Mobile and HTC are offering a spate of customized back covers and color combinations for the myTouch, so users can personalize both the device itself and the way it behaves.
There are pretty robust ways to control the security of the device, how applications are managed, how the microSD slot is managed, how data is synchronized, how location information is reported and on and on.
