Following its launch of the Nexus S, Mobilicity is bringing another Android superstar to Canada with the HTC Emerald, known stateside as the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G. According to Mobilesyrup, we're looking at a sticker price of $450 to $500 for this freshly re-minted device, so if you're hoping to benefit from the carrier's lower-cost monthly plans, we recommend you begin stacking up the loonies. Perceptive readers will note the phone is getting a Gingerbread upgrade just in time for its rumored mid-May arrival -- but otherwise the Emerald is a MyTouch 4G through and through, featuring the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 768MB of RAM and five megapixel shooter that we've come to know and love on T-Mobile's network. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope we also get a dash of subtlety in this revision, given the overly-excited styling we noted in our review.
