New myTouch 4G and Galaxy Tab Accessories Arrive

Every time I get a new cell phone, I make a habit to pick up a slew of accessories for it that always ends up in a drawer. On top of all that, anything that can give me a little bit of extra juice AND protect my phone I’m sold so myTouch4G owners take note. The myTouch4G PowerSkin is now in stores giving the myTouch4G some silicone protection and claims of twice the juice for just $69.99. That might seem a little expensive at first, but for those of us who find ourselves running down on juice by late afternoon, it just might be money well spent.

For all you Galaxy Tab owners out there T-Mobile stores have just received a bevy of accessories in the form of cases, chargers and a dock. I would have thought these were already available but word has it not all stores carried these accessories so they are ready to take your money. No word on pricing on these but that’s nothing a quick trip to your local T-Mobile store can’t solve.

Edit: The Galaxy Tab dock is $49.99.

Happy accessorizing!

    I saw these yesterday at a T-Mobile store but I am extremely disappointed that the myTouch 4G dock doesn’t even use the connectors.

      agreed, I want a 3 pin connector dock. Don’t really want to be wrestling trying to get the MT4G into the dock securely and potentially scratching my beautiful phone. T-Mobile, come out with a new Swivel dock to use brass connectors please, I know you READ this blog.

        I was told that there is a dock that takes advantage of the pins. This was from a T-Mo rep who said they were trained on a different dock than what arrived a couple of days later (the one posted about here). So they believe there is another one coming…

        • Jonathan3579

          And we all know how “brilliant” those reps are, don’t we? *rolls eyes*

    Anybody know of something like that Powerskin for the Vibrant or Galaxy S??? My battery suuuuux

      I get about 12 hours with moderate use throughout the day. Turn off WiFi and BT if you don’t need them on; no live wallpaper; about 40-45% screen brightness; black the screen manually, don’t wait for the time out (unless you’ve got it very quick). I’m sure you know these and more tricks, but thought I’d throw them out there again.

      Oh, and also use the task manager (long press home, press “task manager”) to kill any running apps that shouldn’t/don’t need to be running.

    when we do get the dock that use three brass pins on the side ?? instead of the micro USB
    Recently at when i am running out of juice, tried co-workers Palm Charger and it charged MT4G in 70mins, whenever i used the HTC wall charger it takes more than couple of hours to fully charge it, even HTC.com mentions that it takes 3hours to fully charge the phone… i don’t understand why HTC would issue such a crappy wallcharger ?

      Charging the battery faster will lower the lifetime of the battery (i.e. number of cycles). This is true for almost every rechargeable battery technology out there.

    • jimminycricket

      rapid charging is not good for the battery in the long term

  • Anonymous

    It would have been so much better if this PowerSkin used the side pins versus the usb connector so that it could lose that appendage on the left side of the case.

    patiently waiting for a swivel belt clip for my DEFY.

    • Magenta Magic

      Should probably post that on a thread that has something to do with the DEFY… :-P j/k

      There are some “universal” pouches that have swivel belt clips, but I think what you are looking for is like the BodyGlove shell/clips that the G1 and others had. I have a lot of customers looking for those and I’ve heard “it’s coming” since BG seems to do a shell like that for each of our major phones. So… hang tight and keep checking in?

      Side note: The DEFY everything you hoped for? I’ve only had “kid sales” on those phones, none to adults who can give an in-depth review. Good, bad, indifferent?

    Doesn’t make it look heavier or bigger?

    how much better does it make the battery

  • Fhadsfha

    I’m starting to think the gold pin connectors on the side of the phone don’t even work.

  • Mmartinez3723

    can order it at tmobile.com

    Cool. If only they had one for the G2.

    These accessories are really Sweet, especially since they are Official. I really have to say the silicone skin w/ built in higher capacity batter for the MT4G is a huge surprise. Wayy to go T-Mobile! – D

  • Bailey

    They need to make this Case, with a kick stand!!

  • Mmartinez3723

    there is a case with a kickstand i saw it at tmobile store..

  • DatNizzle

    TPU cases for the Mytouch 4g have hit Ebay, ordered mine yesterday.

  • Kerry

    I will have to go look at the PowerSkin. I can’t seem to find much in the way of pictures etc to get a good look at how much bigger it makes the phone. I’m getting decent battery life, but I throw it on a charger at around 2 or 3pm each day so I have enough juice for the evening. Loving the MT4G though!

    • http://www.method21.net Aaron

      I have the PowerSkin and it’s great for getting around 2-3 extra hours out of the phone (a little less when using the phone). It makes the phone about the size of a PalmTreo, if you ever used one of those back in the day.

      A little bulky, but I ONLY put it on my phone when I need to charge. It’s good for not being tied to a wall when you need to stay on the go. For my preference, it’s a little too bulky to keep it on 24/7

    This will get more appealing as NFC infrastructure is implemented. IMHO

    Stay Thirsty my friends!

  • Os2_sw

    The powerskin is excellent and well worth the money!

    • Punkwee

      I got mine yesterday at a T Mobile store. It makes my phone VERY hot. Is that normal or should I be concerned?

  • Swapngreen

    The galaxy phone is sort of nice it’s a little generic compare to the iPhone 4, but if you have T-Mobile and you’re looking for a great iPhone wanna be then I guess go with the Galaxy, also the new NEXUS S is very nice, and it has a ton of new things as well, any how if you guys need to sell your old T-Mobile phones remember we will buy them at http://www.swapngreen.com

    I’m actually pretty impressed with the 4g batt. Use it the same as my mytouch 3g through out the day and still have 75% when i get home from work. I use live wallpapers, screen set to 40%, gps, bluetooth, wifi set to off. Moderate usage through out the day with facebook, games, texting, calls, and games. A little more web browsing since the browser seems much faster. 3g would have about 50% left and that was with a 1500 milli amp extended batt from sedio.
