T-Mobile is making good on its promise to release its new phones from the fall CTIA show by November. Last week, the carrier put the Nokia 3711 on sale , and Wednesday it offers the T-Mobile Tap.

The Tap is the first Huawei phone for T-Mobile. Its touch-screen design resembles a fair number of other T-Mobile phones, including the Samsung Highlight. Features include support for T-Mobile's 3G network, a 2-megapixel camera with video, a music player, a Web browser, GPS with TeleNav, stereo Bluetooth, messaging and e-mail, a speakerphone, and a personal organizer.

The Tap is available starting November 11 for $79 with a contract or $179 without a contract. You can get it in two colors: berry and midnight blue.
