Original myTouch 3G to receive Android 2.2 upgrade this week

Remember T-Mobile’s “No phones left behind” pledge? It came from Cole Brodman, CTO of T-Mobile, in a letter to employees that stated all the myTouch 3G phones would eventually receive Android 2.2. That happened back in July and we were beginning to wonder if it would ever happen, but a new leaked document confirms the rollout begins this week.

Starting tomorrow, a small group of the original myTouch 3G devices (1.0) will begin to see the Android 2.2 upgrade over the air. Like most OTA updates it will be staggered and run through October 25th, so don’t be upset if your phone doesn’t see it right away.

Unfortunately, only original myTouch 3G devices (1.0) will receive the update at this time.  The myTouch 3G 3.5mm jack, myTouch Fender Limited Edition, and myTouch 3G Slide devices will receive Froyo at a later date.

We will be on the lookout for any reported sightings of the update and let you know when we obtain the official download link so you can manually install it. Drop us a line if the upgrade hits your myTouch 3G.
