MyTouch 3G Update Details

We can all let out a collective “sigh” of relief.  Feels good, right?  The MyTouch 3G has been around for a while, and it’s about time that we hear some real talk about a software update.  According to T-Mobile’s VP of Production Innovation Andrew Sherrard, T-mobile is currently testing the new update internally, which is good for all those MyTouch users out there.  What will the update entail exactly?  Well, he also said that it will be Android 2.1 (YAY!) all dressed in Sense (double yay!), the same UI that is seen on the MyTouch 3G Slide.  He also said that it will have a “Genius Button” like feature, but it will be interesting to see how they handle that without a physical button.  Sounds great, right?  No word on the G1 front, sad.  Leave your thoughts in the comments!

  • Dubya504

    We hear the same old stuff everyday. It’s coming out, it’s coming out! But everything else is getting froyo love but what about us. Soon or later the MT3g will be thrown out the same way they disposed the G1, you mark my words and see if that don’t happens I hope not!

    I have had the upgrade for the mytouch 3G for like two months already and im running 2.2.1 android it was kind of weird because i was at work and my phone suddenly asked me if i want to reboot to upgrade my phone. Now my phone’s UI looks totally different but the funny part is that I’m not even using T-mobile service I’m using Simple Mobile service. I guess the updates don’t come from the service provider but from Google its self.
