myTouch 3G version 1.2

Now that the myTouch 3G 1.2 has been manhandled, really the only thing left to do is for T-Mobile to release the darn thing. And judging by the pictorial, the only real difference we're going to be seeing will be under the hood -- there's now 256MB of RAM -- and the addition of the 3.5mm headphone jack. It also comes with an 8GB microSD card.

Look for the myTouch 3G 1.2 starting tomorrow for $149.99 after contract. [TMoNews]

myTouch 3G 1.2 looks strangely familiar


I plan on doing a warranty exchange for my Mytouch . . theoretically they are no longer selling the original Mytouch

256MB RAM?
It's not any better than HTC Magic. HTC Magic is about the same as myTouch 3G, but MT3G had only 192MB RAM while Magic had 288MB.

Now, the new MT3G 1.2 has 256MB and it is still less than Magic and they want to charge $150 for that?

3.5mm headphone jack is good, though.

Why waste your money on the magic (mytouch)
No battery
Big and ugly
Runs very hot
Under powered.
produces the most radioactive waves out of any phone on the market.

To sum things up this shit sucks

Does this mean people who have purchased myTouch3g in the past three months will probably never see an upgrade to 2.0?

Imo it is nice to see a company refresh a phone instead of continuing to sell outdated hardware. The ram upgrade will offer a slight performance boost and the addition of the 3.5mm headphone jack to me at least will save me a good bit of hassle of always dragging along the dongle that exists now.

The release of this phone will in no way alter HTC's plans to push updates to the original MyTouch 3G. To those of you thinking that you can just claim your existing handset on insurance or under warranty will NOT get the updated version - you'll just get a refurb of the older model.
