Today T-Mobile made the Tap touch phone available for sale. The Tap is a monoblock-style device with a large touch screen and touch user interface. The Tap has quad-band GSM/EDGE radios and supports T-Mobile's 1700MHz UMTS/HSDPA 3G network. The Tap, which was made by Huawei, includes a 2 megapixel camera with video capture, music player, GPS, FM radio, and stereo Bluetooth. It supports microSD cards up to 8GB. The Tap can access T-Mobile's web2go services and also supports most messaging applications such as SMS/MMS and email. The Tap costs $80 after rebates with new agreement.

What a Joke

This is the HTC Touch. Sprint had this phone about 2 to 3 years ago. Shocked

This is kind of crazy to me. But I guess for $80 its targeting the cheap'ees anyways and they wont know any difference or even care. So I guess it may work.

I can see it now, someone bragging on this phone and then I show them that Sprint had this phone a long time ago.
This is a completely different phone. The Tap isn't WinMo based, and actually is a DECENT phone to own, unlike the touch.

If you like the Android interface, you may like this phone as well.
were gonna get one with AT&T in a cpl years prolly too.. then watch out!!

Tap Touch for TMobile Tards!

Really T-Mobile? Really? This is worse than the AT&T quickfire.

I can figure the poor kid who asks for an iPhone or MyTouch and has to open this POS christmas morning. "Huawei?" There's a quality brand right there. Maybe if you're lucky you can impale whatever dolt bought you this phone with it and it won't break apart immediately (don't count on it.)

This is just your average dumbphone- only it's not even to the level of dumb-phones we've seen from LG and Samsung by the fact that it doesn't even possess any justificiation for its (likely fiddly and unresponsive) touch screen such as a decent web browser, media playback, gaming, etc.

Also, for the people thinking this has anything to do with Android, um, NO.
WTF? Who would pay $80.00 for this piece of crap?
