T-Mobile myTouch 3G is the US HTC Magic

It seems T-Mobile USA have decided on a name for their launch of the HTC Magic, and it's one of the suggestions the carrier tested out in last month's survey.  The HTC T-Mobile myTouch 3G is the same underlying device as the Magic smartphone Vodafone Europe launched recently, but will go on sale in the US as the follow-up to the T-Mobile G1.

The screenshot above, from T-Mobile's own inventory system, suggests that three color options will be on the table: black and white, as we've already seen, and a merlot (i.e. red) option.  Still no word on release date or pricing, however.

The T-Mobile myTouch 3G has a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G HSDPA.  It runs the Google Android OS, and differs predominantly from the T-Mobile G1 in that it solely has an on-screen keyboard, rather than a hardware 'board.
