Mobilicity prepares HTC Emerald (aka MyTouch 4G) for northern ascent

Zachary Lutz

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.
