T-Mobile Dash 3G coming in July; more Android details next week
T-Mobile announces the upcoming availability of the T-Mobile Dash 3G and reveals that it will have more details on its new Android device next week.

When she's not scoping out stories, you can find her checking out live music or surfing in the chilly waters of Northern California.
For those of you who don't care about a certain phone from a certain fruit-flavored company, you might be interested to know that T-Mobile announced on Wednesday the upcoming availability of its latest smartphone, the T-Mobile Dash 3G.
The Dash 3G is T-Mobile's take on the HTC Snap, which debuted at CTIA 2009. The carrier expects the smartphone to ship nationwide in July, though it did not release a specific date or pricing at this time. Sprint also announced that it will offer the HTC Snap on June 21 for $149.99 with a two-year contract, so we assume T-Mobile's pricing will be similar.
While behind Sprint, we're just happy to see a replacement for the old T-Mobile Dash. As the name suggests, the handset supports T-Mobile's 3G network and also includes GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. The T-Mobile Dash 3G will run Windows Mobile 6.1 and also offers a full QWERTY keyboard and support for personal and corporate e-mail.
In addition to the Dash 3G, T-Mobile also said that it will reveal more details about its news Google Android device next week. Perhaps, we'll see the official unveiling of the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G?
