    Fender….not really bad

  • Matt_TX

    Sad that T-mobile still has to put out these devices it already contracted for when MUCH better devices are right around the corner. COME ON MYTOUCH SLIDE WITH BETTER SPECS!

    • tortionist

      Why would you want a Mytouch slide when qwerty keyboards are going the way of the Dodo bird. Swype is the future. It’s 2 to 3 times faster than qwerty and it’s fun to use.

  • abi

    hey the wood finish doesnt look half bad. i just saw the ad on tv for it. and if i wasnt already saving up for the nexus one i would get the fender mytouch

    • J5

      Yea, I went to the Tmo store and it actually looks really nice. It reminds me of my first nokia phone that had the wood finish faceplate. I would probably have gotten it had it not been for the Nexus one.

  • txasbubba

    I know the issues over the Nexus One plans and discount, but why pay nearly the same price for this as the Nexus One?

  • timmyjoe42

    I knew I should have waited 2 months to get my Cliq!
    Patience…you have failed me again.

    • jkspike3

      i hear ya

  • sean connery

    I just placed an order for the Fender My Touch. I thought i would give it a try.

    • monica

      I placed my order first thing this morning. I really like the look and that it comes with a 16GB SD card. I have several friends who love their mytouch phones. I think I will too.

      • tortionist

        You’ll also enjoy the Swype method of inputs over qwerty. It’s alot faster and more fun.

  • Marco

    I am curious if it will have the same 3G issues like the Nexus One.

  • just some dude

    Why would anyone buy this over the nexus one.

    • CMK

      @somedude: Personally, I wouldn’t, however I can give you a couple of reasons why someone might. 1) It’s being sold directly from TMobile so if there are any problems you know who to call and, if need be, the phone can be returned easily. 2) If you’re an existing customer but are off-plan you can buy the Fender for the upgrade price while extending your grandfathered plan for two years.

      • just some dude

        Still not worth it for what you get. just because they slap a 3.5mm jack on it they think its the latest n greatest thing. Sorry

      • branon

        And then sell it on ebay to subsidize your nexus one.

    • Greg

      I would have bought the Nexus one but since I am on the family plan they won’t let me. It has to be an individual account.

      • tortionist

        No worries, hold out for the HTC BRavo. It’s supposed to be better than the Nexus one.

  • http://twitter.com/phenomenon_7 Phenomenon

    @CMK

    Yes, this is true. Aside from me not really caring for the Nexus one at all.

    My GrandFather Plan > ________________.

    **Patiently waits for the HD2′s arival.

    • tortionist

      HD2 might be okay, but it has windows Mobile 6.5 and probably doesn’t have Swype.

  • MAXIMUS

    Oh T-Mobile…..why even bother? Just when you were doing so well. Google gives you the Nexus One, you announce the HD2 and now you take 8 steps backwards. Bet this phone won’t be flying off the shelves.

    Snap out of it…it’s 2010…a new decade and hopefully a new T-Mobile.

    • john

      Are they supposed to tell everyone that wants a phone today to wait till the hd2 comes out? Still have to sell phones today to make sure they’re open tomorrow.

    • PHONE FREAK

      some people prefer different phones. Your opinion doesn’t stand for the entire american population

  • Kendrix_myrealname

    I saw this phone at T-Mo today and it changed my perception greatly. It actually looks pretty good in person. The only thing I dont like about it is that the silver keys dont match the finish. But it feel really good in the hands and the 3.5mm jack had no business being missing from the Mytouch. I wish I had it right about now…I just wasn’t going to wait and start paying $30 a month for data.

  • PopArtist

    timmyjoe42, Best Buy’s had the Cliq for $99, even for existing customers upgrading, for over two months now. I added data but kept my old calling plan.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    I’m waiting for a Tmobile version of the Motorola Shadow.

    • phonegeek

      im waiting on that too if they get it i immediately i mean IMMEDIATELY know where my money is going isnt it for Feb??

      • Wilma Flintstone

        I’m not sure on the Release date but if it is in Feb. I’m buying it depending on the allowed plans. Here’s hoping for that Feb. release.

  • http://Tmonews Wojax2

    Fender addition huh?.. Ummm isn’t there like 5 awesome smartphones around the corner?. No offence t- mob but… FAIL!

    • rushmore

      Awesome = Nexus with a KB, or version of Droid on Tmo (with a KB).

      At&t, Sprint and Verizon will all have Droid / Nexus level Android devices with a KB, this year, but Tmo will not.

      • sorandkairi

        What are u talkin about the Nexus 1 will be coming to T mobile 1st!? What are u talking about

      • tortionist

        Actually Tmo will have their version in the HTC Bravo, some time around September.

  • josh

    It is time for all the original mytouch owners to start to get upset. The original mytouch will not get the 2.X update that is why T-Mobile is updating to the magic 32a board witch is the same as everyone else’s android phones. That is why they said it will update to 2.X and they will not comment on the original mytouch update. Also I spoke to a lot of T-mobile people recently and they state there is an issue with the original hardware and new OS. Just think about it why would they just update the mytouch to the magic? They tried to save some money with shaving the ram and now were out. Thank goodness for custom roms.

  • jay_cee

    What does “288 Mbytes of RAM” mean?

    Does that mean it has more RAM for multitasking and should be able to switch between apps without slowing down?

    Or does that mean it has more Flash for storing apps?

    • Kickstar13

      More RAM=Less Lag

  • josh

    ram is random access memory from what I can gather it would be like running a hero rom on the mytouch or g1. They work there just slow. Not very good for every day use. The ram is the only hardware difference between these phones.

  • josh

    @zzyyzzx

    Well see when the lord created us he gave the ability to think so in the post you attached a link to it says nothing. I do think they have been working with google and the solution they had come up with is that the hardware will not support 2.0 so new hardware. And my source was T-mobile PDA support and being able so see what there not saying. Per customer care PDA support android specialist any further updates will need new hardware and is not avaliable for the mytouch 3g or G1. Take it for what you want in the future please leave adult comments kids.

    • zzyyzzx

      That’s pretty amazing Josh, seeing as how the G1 will be getting 2.0 at the end of January.

  • JBLmobileG1

    No offense Josh… but Tmobile PDA support is a bunch of idiots. I have learned this after talking with them since having my G1. When I first had issues with my phone they wanted me to reformat it when honestly it wasn’t needed. I don’t really think they know what they are talking about half of the time. They are about as much help as some foreign customer care rep. reading from a script…. and you know they might just be doing that. And if they claim that newer software can’t run on the current hardware then how come some hackers can figure it out by rooting their phones. I am sure they’d tell you multi touch isn’t possible either. My guess is its all about money… and if they keep upgrading older hardware then some people may not feel the need to upgrade their phones in which case Tmobile would lose money. I learned this from owning my MDA…. they didn’t want to upgrade our Windows so they released the Wing which was almost exactly the same only it had the newer WinMobile. If Tmobile and Microsoft had released a newer o/s for the MDA the Wing wouldn’t have been needed. So…. I find that it isn’t software or hardware related… but more so money related. True the newer o/s may require a more powerful processor in the future…. and if anything the phone will need to have the same or similar specs as the Nexus One since it is the actual “Google Phone” of Google Phones. Someday in order to get all the features etc. Running at full speed you’ll need the specs of their device. Not Tmobile and Google’s device… just Google’s device since they I am sure know what their plans are as how the Google Android o/s will evolve and what it will become. And who knows… maybe they will be like Tmobile and already have plans for another Google only device that will replace the Nexus One. If so… as with Apple and its iphone it will have just enough extra for people to scream “I want it” only to have plans for the third device to have yet again something that the first or second should have had all along. Its the way of business. Add just a little bit to the next one so people will want to pick it up. I am sure I myself could create the ultimate phone but then if I did that who would want anything else? I’d be out of buisness.

      very well said.. :p

    • john

      While this does carry some merit, rooting does allow you to overclock, and therefore squeezing a few more drops of performance out of the older phones. Now, let’s say they come up with a version that taxes the droid chipset, then are you saying that this will theoretically work on a g1, and might I add that at first when rooting you would lose bt and wifi connectivity.

  • CHUCK KIRKPATRICK

    Tried to order one from T-mobile site. They don’t even show it. What kind of stupidity is that? Does this phone actually exist? Where the hell do you get one? God knows T-Mobile has spent enough money advertising the damn thing.
