And it is finally official. The T-Mobile myTouch 3G aka HTC Magic aka Google Ion has been formally announced as T-Mobile's Second Android Device with pre-orders starting July 8th and an expected August release date. The myTouch 3G packs a 3.2" HVGA touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel camera, T-Mobile 3G, quadband Edge, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth (A2DP as well), and of course Android 1.5 Cupcake and your usual Android suite of Google applications.

What makes the myTouch 3G different is that it'll include official Exchange support, a first for an Android device in the states. And though other Exchange-supported Android devices are custom built HTC devices without Google branding, we spy 'with Google' branding on the myTouch 3G. Is this the best of both worlds? Exchange support and Google approval? Score!

Pre-orders start July 8th with three different color options: white, black, and the much anticipated merlot. So how about it guys, are you going to jump to myTouch 3G or is your T-Mobile G1 good enough? Still holding out for a Samsung Galaxy? Let us know in the comments!
