T-Mobile Introduces Limited Edition myTouch 3G Fender

If you've been thinking about getting the T-Mobile myTouch 3G but want a phone that shows off more of your personal style, then T-Mobile's latest version of the phone might be for you. Putting a "rock-and-roll spin" on the original T-Mobile myTouch 3G with Google, the new myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition will make its debut on January 20.

To kick off the launch, T-Mobile will begin airing a commercial featuring Eric Clapton on January 20th. Although the hardware of the phone isn't much different than the original, the Fender Limited Edition model will feature a fresh design with enhanced features. The device will ship with preloaded Clapton classics such as “Layla,” “My Father’s Eyes,” “Rock ‘N’ Roll Heart,” and “Wonderful Tonight.” The phone will also ship with songs from Wyclef Jean, Avril Lavigne, and Brad Paisley.

The new limited edition myTouch was designed in partnership with Fender and features a Fender guitar sunburst-finish inspired design. Designed to provide an enhanced music experience, this limited edition phone also comes with a 16GB microSD card, a 3.5mm headset jack, and an enhanced music player with a touch-sensitive user interface and the ability to create ringtones from songs that are currently playing.

New accessories for the limited edition model include additional Fender-branded shells, a Fender carrying case, screen protector, and Rock Dock, a docking station equipped with speakers. The Fender Limited Edition will ship with Android 1.6, but is expected to be updated to Android 2.1 this spring. The T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition will be available starting January 20 while quantities last. The device will cost $179.99 with a new two-year service agreement and qualifying voice and data plan.
