T-Mobile Dash 3G

T-Mobile this evening officially launched the Dash 3G. The new interpretation of the HTC Snap has native support for its carrier's 1,700MHz 3G network but replaces the stock Windows Mobile 6.1 phone's Inner Circle feature with MyFaves for free calling to five US contacts. It otherwise has the full feature set, however, including the 2-megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi as well as one of the few navigation trackballs outside of BlackBerries.

In spite of the launch, T-Mobile is silent on most of the launch details other than to say it plans a release in July. With the absence of a touchscreen or some other high-end features, however, pricing is more likely to hover between $100 and $150 when the Dash 3G is attached to a two-year contract.

Additionally, T-Mobile has confirmed rumors that it will discuss its next Android phone next week. Details of the phone and its launch aren't clear, but it's assumed the phone will be the myTouch 3G, or a conversion of the HTC Magic. The handset is a full-touchscreen device that competes more directly with the iPhone and is expected to ship early in the summer.
