T-Mobile and HTC have just announced the “new” myTouch aka myTouch HD. Like the G2, the myTouch HD runs on T-Mobile’s super fast HSPA+ network (4G) that’s currently available in Biloxi and Gulfport, Miss.; Denver, Colo.; Huntsville, Ala.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Norfolk, Va.; Omaha, Neb.; Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz.; Salt Lake City, Utah; San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland and Sacramento, Calif.; and West Palm Beach, Fla.

The latest Android–powered myTouch phone includes a Video Chat feature akin to Apple’s FaceTime for the iPhone 4 and iPod touch but works over the network (3G) and not just over Wi-Fi. The service will work with other T-Mobile myTouches, Yahoo! Messenger and Qik.

No word on a launch date but T-Mobile promises to deliver the new myTouch in time for the holidays.

Other notable features include:

• Android 2.2 (including FlashPlayer 10.1 support)
• Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz MSM8255 processor
• 3.8-inch WVGA touch-screen
• 5-megapixel rear camera
• Dragon Dication powered Genius Button
• UMA support for Wi-Fi calling
• Swype
• Screen Share: “allows customers to share or broadcast HD video and pictures they’ve captured. With a few touches of the screen, customers can share their photo albums, videos and movies wirelessly with a compatible HDTV or other DLNA device.”

Sidenote: Notice the poor photoshopping skills from T-Mobile?
