The T-Mobile myTouch 3G goes on presale July 8th-28th, but when does it actually hit stores? I had been looking for this information and could not find it publicly released. Rumors I have read placed the launch sometime in August.
While browsing my Feedburner stats today, I noticed a new uncommon use from a domain I did not recognize. I typed in the URL and discovered the dev server for the official myTouch 3G website. To my surprise, they had a countdown widget in the lower corner that said “myTouch 3G in stores”.
After doing the math, I discovered the launch date to be August 5th, 2009. I needed to see how the widget was calculating the date, so I viewed the page source. A quick search revealed what I was looking for:
var launchTime = new Date(2009, 7, 5, 12, 0);
Update: August 5th is the same date in the leaked T-Mobile roadmap so I think this confirms the launch.
