T-Mobile myTouch 3G to receive OTA and 3.5mm jack today

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.

For a couple of fuzzy unboxing pics of the myTouch 3G with 3.5mm jack, head over to TmoNews.

      I’m a little confused as to what this OTA is for. Improved call performance? Was it bad before? Idk…

    For all the advertising they did for the first mytouch 3g. we still waiting on 2.1 how about 2.0 for now why have us waiting so long

    Arrgh. It makes me mad that a few months after I got a mt3g they are releasing this new version with features that shoud have been in the first one. I wish they would upgrade for little or no price but they won’t.

      +1 This is the first time that I have felt betrayed by T-Mobile and am actually considering dropping them. Verizon, here I come!

    • http://Website ZRod

      Ya, I feel like an iPhone customer. Just less screwed and still with a better phone.

    What is the android version of mytouch 1.5?

    • http://Website Chris Jackson

      The mytouch3g original ships with android 1.5. and within 72 hours of activation – an OTA for 1.6 is made.

  • http://Website androidspam

    Any word on if the launch Mytouch 3g (without the 3.5mm Jack) will receieve android 2.0? Seems like the refreshed phone is an excuse to leave the first phone in android 1.6 land.

    Will this be going out for the G1 as well? There was a pilot of DMD64 which was made available to some G1 users.
