T-Mobile myTouch 3G Available For Pre-Sale

Although the T-Mobile myTouch 3G won’t be available nationwide until August 5th, current T-Mobile customers can pre-order the phone to ensure they’re one of the first to get their hands on this much anticipated phone. Starting today, current T-Mobile customers can visit www.T-MobilemyTouch.com to order the company’s latest Android-powered device. T-Mobile is making the deal even sweeter by announcing that existing customers who order the phone during the pre-sales period from July 8-28 can qualify for delivery before the national retail launch.

The T-Mobile myTouch 3G was designed by HTC and boasts of a sleek and lightweight look and feel. The handset has a full touchscreen with a virtual keyboard and many customization options. In order to deliver a rich mobile experience, T-Mobile and Google have partnered to offer one-touch access to Google mobile services such as Google Search by voice, Google Maps with Street View, YouTube, and Picasa.

“We’ve heard loud and clear from our customers that a deeper level of personalization matters to them,” said Denny Marie Post, chief marketing officer, T-Mobile USA. “That is why we placed so much emphasis on breaking the mold with myTouch 3G: to provide customers with boundless ways to make their phone a true expression, and extension, of themselves.”

You can customize the myTouch 3G with widgets, icons, and wallpapers that can be added directly from the home screen. The myTouch 3G also supports the Android Market for easy access to thousands of applications for further customization of the device.

T-Mobile also plans to launch a new application within the Android Market called the AppPack next month. The AppPack will highlight a variety of applications in order to help customers further personalize their myTouch 3G, manage their T-Mobile accounts, and make the most of their T-Mobile experience.

A variety of accessories and pre-designed shell patterns will be available soon at retail and online stores. Customers will be able to design their own custom shells using a dedicated Web site as well. T-Mobile also plans to offer five accessory packs for the phone, including a music bundle with portable speakers and a fitness pack that includes a fitness belt and arm band.

The myTouch 3G will be available at T-Mobile retail stores and online starting August 5 for $199.99 with a two-year agreement.
