Review: T-Mobile myTouch 3G
The HTC myTouch 3G with Google is definitely a step forward for Android. The hardware is far superior in almost every way. Those looking for a physical QWERTY keyboard, however, may find the myTouch's software QWERTY hard to use. The lack of a 3.5mm headset jack may put of some users, but if you still reserve a dedicated media player for music, this isn't going to bug you.
Android continues to be good at Gmail and most messaging applications, but it is clear that content creation and consumption is a bit of an after-thought. Sure, the myTouch has an improved camera and can capture video, but the quality seemed a bit sub-par when compared to the competition.
The browsing experience has been strengthened and has made Android a much more capable platform through which to experience the mobile web. It's also important to consider that Android can and will be updated. That means new features and improvements on existing features.

If you're looking for a pocketable computer, the myTouch from HTC and T-Mobile is a solid bet — especially if you worship at the altar of Google. If you need a smartphone that can handle heavier lifting (i.e., more business-friendly features in the software and security department), you may want to stick with Windows Mobile phones or BlackBerries.
