T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition landing January 20

January 14, 2010 |

T-mobile is finally ready to launch the myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition. The handset is scheduled to launch on January 20th for $179.99 with a new two year agreement. From what we can tell, hardware is pretty much the same as the original, but the fender Limited Edition does feature a 3.5mm headphone jack to make music that much more enjoyable, 288MB of RAM and will be sporting a Fender branded shell. To make sure your music experience is up to snuff with other smartphones on the market, the myTouch 3G Fender Limited edition has a new customized music player created by HTC, a 16GB microSD card for all your music, and preloaded music from Eric Clapton, Wyclef Jean, Avril Lavigne and Brad Paisley. T-Mobile is also throwing in a customized version of the DoubleTwist music syncing computer application so that you can easily sync up all your tunes and even transfer in your iTunes playlists.
The January 20th launch of the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition will be accompanied by a new commercial featuring Eric Clapton. It’s nothing revolutionary and does nothing to call out the differences between the original and the Fender Limited Edition, but at least it’s nice to see T-Mobile still backing the myTouch line.

Android 2.0 making its way to HTC Magic in the Spring [Rumor]

January 5, 2010 |


If you’re the proud owner of HTC’s first generation of Android handsets (HTC Dream and the HTC Magic), you might be asking yourself when your phone will be getting the latest Android update. HTC rolled out an Android 1.6 update last fall, but Motorola’s DROID is running Android 2.0.1 and the Nexus One (which should launch TODAY) is running Android 2.1. So where does that leave those who bought into the Android platform early on?

HTC, T-Mobile, and even Google have been silent over the matter. HTC has promised support for Android 2.0 for the HTC Hero and we’ve even seen some of the leaked ROMs already, but there has been no news on the Magic front. But now, Austria’s A1 has confirmed that they are planning on upgrading their HTC Magic to Android 2.0 this spring.

OK, I just got off the phone with the tech support people from my carrier (A1). They told me that it is GUARANTEED that the HTC Magic will be getting 2.0 and it will be pushed over the air to users on their network between March and April. Android 2.1 is ALSO guaranteed to be coming to the Magic on their network, but they do not have a fix date on that release – yet.

I can’t vouch for the guy who gave this information, but I can say that Andrew from Androinica wouldn’t pass it on if there was a credibility issue. Since the HTC Magic is essentially an HTC Hero with a different body, I see no reason why the handset wouldn’t get Android 2.0 when the Hero would. I’ll be meeting up with the HTC team at CES tomorrow, so I’ll be sure to bring this up to see if they have an official answer for us.
