One of the worst kept secrets in recent mobile history has been finally unveiled in official form.  The heir to the G1 is going to be called the myTouch 3G and it will be available in early August.  Available in black, white or merlot, the handset will be $200 with a 2-year agreement. 

Final specs include a 3.2″ capacitive touch screen, 3.2MP camera, Android 1.5, and UMTS/HSPA, WiFi b/g capability.  The battery promises an extra hour of talk time Internally, there are many similarities to the G1, but the form factor is likely to help Android gain more momentum.  It has a more modern design and looks like it belongs in the same conversations as Palm Pre and iPhone 3GS.
