T-Mobile UK Gets A Lot Of Touch Phones - Bravo, X10, Vivaz, SpicaBy cheatmaster 01:27 Sun, 08 Aug 2021 Comments
T-Mobile is getting a ton of touch-enabled handsets, the majority of which run Android. So, here's the list - HTC Bravo, Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 and Vivaz (Kurara), also Samsung i5700 Galaxy Spica and finally, the BlackBerry Storm2.
Let's break it down - the HTC Bravo is headed to T-Mobile UK and should be available by the discontinue of January. The Bravo is like an un-Googled Nexus One, but with some extra goodies. The HTC Bravo swaps the old-fashioned trackball for an optical trackpad and will run multi-touch enabled Sense UI. The Bravo would be free on a 35 pound per month tariff (40 euro).

The much-awaited Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 and Sony Ericsson Vivaz (formerly Kurara) will hit the stores in March in a double offensive. If you missed it, the Sony Ericsson Viva is Sony Ericsson's 720p video recording, Symbian running monster. It's got an 8MP capturing camera and a powerful Cortex A8 running at 720MHz. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 is the manufacturer's first Android - it too has an 8MP capturing camera (only WVGA@30fps video though) and has an equally impressive 1Giga Hertz (GHz) Snapdragon CPU. Oh, and a 4" capacitive touchclassy screen with 480x854 pixels resolution.

The Samsung i5700 Galaxy Spica is already available on the T-Mobile UK site, under the name i5700 Galaxy Portal. It's available for 70 pounds on an 18-month contract, 13 pounds monthly charge, or for free for 18 pounds a month (again, an 18-month contract). The Samsung i5700 Galaxy Portal and the Samsung I7500 Galaxy should be getting the Android 2.0 upgrade in February.

Finishing off the touch lineup is the BlackBerry Storm2 coming to T-Mobile UK in February for free on a 35 pounds/month contract. Also, as we reported earlier the LG GW620, or as the Brits call it LG InTouch Max, is available for T-Mobile UK as well. There was talk that it will come out on February 4th, but it seems it's already available.
