It looks like today might be the day the refreshed myTouch 3G with 3.5mm jack goes on sale. The phone was rumored to launch on February 10 and T-Mobile quietly listed it on their site early this morning.
This device is a clone of the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition minus the Fender. New additions to the phone include a 3.5 mm headset jack and 288 MB of RAM (vs 192 MB of the original MT3G). The phone will also feature the Swype keyboard and doubleTwist.
No price point has been revealed, but the original myTouch 3G (now discontinued) is still going for $149 with a 2 year contract.
Update: The myTouch 3G will sell for $149 with 2 year contract or $249 with a 1 year agreement.
TmoNews also spotted that T-Mobile began rolling out a new OTA (version DMD64) at midnight for the myTouch 3G. This update will improve MyTouch user’s call performance only and does not include any additional feature enhancements.
Even though the new myTouch ships with Android 1.6, we expect it will be upgraded to Android 2.1 within the new couple of months. T-Mobile announced Android 2.1 for the Fender version of the phone so you can bet it will come to the refreshed version as well.
