CTIA Fall 2010
HTC had the brand new myTouch on hand, though it wasn't operable. It was just a hardware dummy unit. Still, we were able to glean an impression of the hardware, which I have to say felt excellent.
The original myTouch felt plastic-y and toy like. This redesign feels high class all the way. The materials have been upgraded to glass, better plastics and even some metal.

It isn't too heavy, is thin, and has a great feel in the hand. The rounded edges make it very comfortable to hold and interact with.
The nav cluster is a bit squished at the bottom of the device, but the buttons had excellent travel and feedback.
The hatches, ports, and buttons sprinkled around the outer edge of the phone were all easily accessed and felt good to use.
If the new myTouch performs as good as it looks, it will be a solid seller for T-mobile and HTC.
