Even the press event is personalized


Further adding to the personalization of the MyTouch, T-Mobile is getting the point across by allowing each attending member of their MyTouch press event to choose their own nametag. With a wealth of absolutely incredible images to choose from, it looks as if they’ve covered a wide range of people: the coffee junkie, the overly (and obviously exaggerated) happy people, people who do stuff with stopwatches, people who… need passports (???)… musicians, movie buffs, and undecided types. Both David and I have spent countless hours seconds trying to choose which would best represent us at the event at home watching our inbox for late emails. I’m sure there are plenty of press attendees out there in this same difficult predicament… good luck to all of you.

    I wish we could choose between the myTouch 3G hardware and hardware that isn’t outdated.

  • Texan

    I’m Mr. Music as well. This is so nice, can’t wait to get my MyTouch3G

    Mrs. Music……I went to a tmobile store today and held the phone I love it, saw it in all 3 colors….I love the red…now!!

  • TaTo22

    really nice

    Used the device yesterday for 6 hours. It really is awesome .. everything the G1 could have been. Scrolling is really smooth, touch response is far better, bigger battery , app market downloads and installs no issues, camera the same as 1.5 update, device feels really sweet in your hand. not very heavy or too bulky. i do however, miss the keyboard of the G1… the virtual keyboard is nice and works in both orientations but my fingers are too big. The merlot color is kind of a dull maroon.

    i know this has nothing to do with anything! but does anyone know if you get a my touch and donut 2.0 comes out will we be able to get it just like g1′s were able to! or will they pull an apple and make us buy a new phone to experience the new stuff?

  • Eric

    I don’t understand why people are saying the mytouch is “more responsive” and “everything the G1 should have been.” This phone has the SAME EXACT SPECS AS THE G1! I guess if you don’t have a G1 yet, the mytouch gives you a nice option (if you don’t want a physical keyboard and prefer Android’s half-a$$ keyboard that doesn’t utilize multi-touch for fast typing). I think TMO really dropped the ball here. I’d LOVE to spend some money on an upgraded Android phone, but the mytouch is hardly an upgrade. After some great stuff from TMO recently, this is really disappointing. No physical keyboard. Same processor. Same amount of RAM. Same size screen. No 3.5 headphone jack. Why should us G1 owners upgrade? I hope the Hero comes to tmo soon…what a waste the mytouch is.

    Nah, that’s why I had “at the event” crossed out. Our email inbox is so unreliable when it comes to those darn invitations, they never seem to get through ;) hehe

  • Ash

    Did they have demos in the stores? Or were they employees phones? Im with you I would be wanna me Miss Music or Movies!!

  • Dave

    I also went today and held the black one and I must say I really like the feel of it. It seemed a little more responsive to me than the G1. The girl at T-Mobile said she would hide one for me to make sure I get it on release day. I plan on getting the white.

  • FILA

    Man ima have to go to the store then to see if its out here, where you guys live at? Do they have them out everywhere you know. Im in the Baltimore area I’ll have to check, cuz I def want to get my hands on it

  • bk_brownie

    yes they had the demos, the employees order the same time we get to order!

  • bk_brownie

    my option are between white and merlot! leaning more towards merlot after seeing it in person!

  • Mystictrust

    I imagine that yes, Android updates will continue to come to all the devices. The whole idea behind Android is being open.

    Besides, root the phone and you can install anything onto it. I know of someone who has installed the HTC Hero build on his G1, even though they have stated that build won’t come to Google branded phones.

  • meShel

    Why upgrade?

    Let’s see… I have the G1, and my three biggest complaints are:
    1. The phone is a brick! Yeah, if it had come out in the ’90s, this would have been a sleek beautiful handset. In 2008? Sorry.

    2. Battery life… sucks!

    3. Internal memory for storing apps on the G1? 72MB.

    The mt is MUCH lighter and sleeker, is supposed to have much better battery life, and has about 280MB internal memory for storing apps!

    If you people don’t know what you’re talking about, perhaps you should do some research.

    If you HAVE to have a physical keyboard, stick with G1. If not, this IS a nice upgrade.

  • Eric

    From what I’ve read, the battery is bigger (which is a nice ‘plus’), however there is NOT more internal memory. That is, I’ve read on multiple sites that the mytouch3g has 192 MB RAM – the same as the G1. Having more space would be a huge plus, but unless what I’ve read is incorrect, the only “upgrades” you’re getting is a sleaker/lighter look and a longer-lasting battery.

  • bk_brownie

    it has more ROM!

  • bk_brownie

    and from what i just read 288 MB RAM
