T-Mobile has pushed out a few limited editions of the myTouch 3G—most recently the Eric Clapton Fender Limited Edition—but today the wireless carrier has unveiled a whole new version of the phone, also calling it the myTouch 3G. So all of those people who have the current edition of the Android-powered myTouch 3G, you now have to refer to your smartphones as the “original myTouch 3G.”
We’re not joking—T-Mobile declared in its official statement today that “the new device will simply be called the T-Mobile myTouch 3G and will replace the original T-Mobile myTouch 3G.” We think it should be called “the smartphone formerly known as the T-Mobile’s myTouch 3G,” but that is quite the mouthful.
According to T-Mobile, the new myTouch offers 288 MB of RAM and an 8GB microSD card, Swype for faster text input, as well as built-in 3.5mm headset jack and updated music player. The new myTouch also includes all of Google’s Android phone perks like access to all of their services, including Google Search by voice, Picasa and YouTube.
T-Mobile says the myTouch 3G is now available at select T-Mobile locations and online for $149.99 including a two-year contract agreement.
