Here it is. The T-Mobile announcement we were all waiting for today. It’s official. The T-Mobile myTouch 3G is coming to us via an August release date, with pre-orders starting on July 8th. The device will run you $199.99 on a 2-year term, and will be available in white, merlot (red), and black. You can check out the myTouch 3G mini site for more information and a countdown timer that ticks down the time until pre-orders begin.
The myTouch 3G is the second Android-powered device to hit T-Mobile. It features an improved form factor in comparison to the G1 (in my opinion), a full QWERTY touchscreen keyboard (yep, Android 1.5 is on board), a 3.2 MP camera, plus tight integration with a bunch of Google apps including Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail and more. This is all to be expected considering the device is a ‘Google Experience’ unit.
One important note about the myTouch 3G on T-Mo… is fact that it appears to have Exchange support as well. This is a first for Android in the US, and definitely a first for a ‘Google Experience’ device. Very interesting.
Again, for more information hit up the myTouch 3G mini-site and poke around.
