T-Mobile’s MyTouch smartphone line is growing by two Wednesday with the launch of LG’s MyTouch and MyTouch Q.

Both of the new phones will sell for $80 after a mail-in rebate and on a two-year data plan from T-Mobile. They will run on a simplified version of Google’s Android operating system designed to make the MyTouch phones easy to use and ideal for those who’ve never had a smartphone.


The two handsets built by LG have simple, blacked-out styling, but there are differences. The LG MyTouch features a 3.8-inch touch screen, while the LG MyTouch Q features a smaller 3.5-inch display and a slide-out keyboard.

Both phones will run on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network and make use of a single-core 1-gigahertz processor from Qualcomm and feature a 5-megapixel camera on the back -- no high-end specs, but still respectable.

The LG MyTouch and the MyTouch Q will sit on the lower end of T-Mobile’s MyTouch range which at the top has the MyTocuh 4G Slide by HTC, which sells for $200 with a two-year contract.
