Oprah is celebrating the 24th anniversary of her show by sponsoring the myTouch 3G. Enter the code KICKOFF24 when checking out and the price will be reduced to $99! The fine print says a new 2 year agreement is required so those of you waiting for the moment, this may be it. Or you could wait for the CLIQ to beam into your local T-Mobile store, whenever that is
That’s right all you myTouch 3G (or to be) owners, Exchange support and visual voicemail is coming to your phone!
Unfortunately, Exchange will only be working with mail, no calender or contacts as of right now. There is already a third party exchange app, but that costs around $20. No word on a release date, or if this will be coming to the G1, but this will surely make you business types happy.
And visual voicemail is also coming to the myTouch 3G. Which there is also an app for already. I’ve never used visual voicemal, but it seems like something worth having if you save a lot of voicemails.
If there is an app or program you find useful, let us know in the comments.
$199.99 with a 2 year contract, and 299.99 with a 1 year contract. Before you start complaining how expensive it is, take in to account how much money you save by having T-Mobile over one of the other large wireless carriers. Well, that’s probably what they were thinking when they decided on the final price of the myTouch. Clearly, T-Mo isn’t trying to compete with the iPhones $99.99 price tag. Or maybe they are, but in an indirect way. Existing postpaid and FlexPay customers will be able to pre order the device, and will recieve it between July 29th, and August 3rd. You’re still gonna buy it, aren’t you?
This could be bad news for anyone hoping the Touch Pro 2 was gonna be on the cheaper side. Who knows, maybe Magenta will surprise us all! And maybe MJ isn’t really dead…

Today, T-Mobile employees everywhere are getting their hands on the new MyTouch 3G, which means unboxing videos! Also of note is what this T-Mo employee said in the “info” box of his YouTube video. He says “In the next month we will be releasing the mytouch and the HTC Touch 2 pro…”. We already heard it was coming in July, but this further confirmation should reassure us that we can get our hands on those two devices very soon.
“Alright, I got one of these to learn on and promote. For not being a touch-screen keboard guy, I love it.. The battery life is a solid 2-3 hrs of usage time longer than the g1. I streamed video, played music, and ran Buddymob at the same time with above average performance. The ROM is 512 MB with around 288 mb usable memory. The phone is much smoother then the g1. Loading Icons and transitions are quicker. Speake phone and ringer are slightly louder . This is a true Iphone competitior. If you own an Iphone now you will not mind the transition at all. In the next month we will be releasing the mytouch and the HTC Touch 2 pro(which I’ve had the pleasure to play with) While windows mobile is beautiful on the right hardware. This will be much easier to navigate for the mulitmedia user. With both releases in July T-mobile is going to be laying some serious pressure to its compeititors in the data device category.”
Some more MyTouch 3G pictures have been leaked by a user over at TmoNews.com. Pictured is a charger, headphones, usb cable, and a carrying case. We can also see the new “MyTouch3G” splash screen when you start up the device. It also looks like T-Mobile ditched the glossy finish on the back of the device for a nice matte finish, now it’s less of a fingerprint magnet. +1 for T-Mobile. We should be getting our grubby little hands on this soon enough.
More MyTouch after the break.
TmoNews.com just got a tip which they believe is 98% true that the upcoming T-Mobile Android device, the MyTouch 3G will be released sometime in June, rather than the later rumored date.
Their reasoning for being so sure this tip is true, the release of the iPhone 3GS and the Palm Pre.
T-Mobile seems to really be stepping up it’s game with all these new high end devices, and services. It would only make sense that they release one of their own “big” devices to compete with Apple and Palm. And lets hope (for our sake) that this is what T-Mobile does.
