T-Mobile has unveiled a new version of the T-Mobile mytouch 3G first announced last year.

The new device, still to be called the T-Mobile myTouch 3G, will replace the original T-Mobile myTouch 3G and sit alongside the Fender version, while offering new features including a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack and updated music player, more memory in the guise of 288MB of RAM and an 8GB microSD card and Swype built in. 

Swype's software aims to combat the problem of typing on a small screen by having a high degree of error tolerance.

Users can swipe their finger across the screen rather than having to individually press specific keys, hence the name.

UK phone owners will have to wait until later in the year before the Swype software becomes available, although expect enterprising developers to port it to other Android handsets no doubt before then.
