T-Mobile MyTouch 3G now official, costs $199.99

We knew that the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G was going to be announced this month and, well, the smartphone is now finally official.

Sadly, T-Mobile USA will only sell its second Android handset starting early August. However, the carrier’s current customers will be able to pre-order it as of July 8 and thus receive it sometime later that month. The smartphone’s price is of $199.99 with a contract agreement for two years.

As expected, the MyTouch 3G will be offered in three color versions: white, black and merlot.

T-Mobile MyTouch 3G official

Unlike its predecessor (T-Mobile G1), MyTouch 3G doesn’t have a hardware keyboard, so it’s slightly thinner.

The new smartphone obviously features stuff like Google Search by voice, Google Maps with Street View, YouTube and Picasa access and so on. It is highly customizable (including apps like Sherpa) and it comes with a 4GB card in the box.

Other than that, the specs of MyTouch 3G are similar to the ones of HTC Magic: 3.2 inch touchscreen display with 320 x 480 pixels, GPS, Wi-Fi and a 3.2MP camera with autofocus and video recording.

The official website of T-Mobile’s MyTouch 3G can be accessed here.

    This may look good but we’ll just hope that this will not have any problems in terms of usability. There are already a lot of new phones released however; some are just released with a lot of flaws. It looks good and hope its functions are also good.

    I for one am very excited to get myTouch3G. I've been using an unlocked iPhone on T-Mobile for a while now.

    I like T-Mobile's network where I live and the call quality is excellent. I've been testing their 3G network out here in LA and I like what I see. They don't have 80 million users clogging up the network so at least in my area it's all mine for the taking. ;-) No complaints here!

    I text and email a lot for my business. Using a virtual keyboard is good for quick stuff, like searches. An actual keyboard is a must. If only the MyTouch had a slide out keyboard. It would be awesome.

    I would have preferred a 3.5 mm jack, but when I stop and think about how many times I'd need it it's really a moot point. I use my Nano for music and a BT headset for calls while driving.

    Discuss more about this phone at http://www.myTouch3GForum.com, I usually hangs out there.
