Default T-mo MyTouch 3G waiting thread

So where the heck is this phone?

I've been following this phone since it was called the HTC Magic.
It's passed the FCC
Google has already passed out a bunch of them in the states
The box art has been revealed- unless it was a big ole' hoax
T-mo is hinting at a Android release early summer.

What the hell else are going to do to tease the consumer?
I predict posters at T-mo stores with a cell phone silhouette that says "A new way to communicate" sign.

I'm predicting a July-August release.

Anybody else waiting?

Ha! Good point. The problem is that my wife needs a new phone (it’s beat to heck,) so before we sign away another two years of our life, I want to get the best one I can. Just about everyone at work has the iPhone so I want to get something similar on the Android end (no, I don't want to change carriers. And yes, I'm in IT)
Do I grab the Behold, or wait for a better one? I didn’t care for the G1, but the G3 has a lot of potential.

I believe we'll get the announcement of two new TMo Android phones before the end of the month.

New Android Phones Coming to TMo

And I suspect that this is is one of them, based on the Phandroid front page story.

I knew it! July-August!

T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Officially Official

It will cost $200.

If you are a current T-mo customer you can pre-order July 8th, ships July 29th

If you are new you get to buy in early August. So T-mo penalizes the new user and the competition's business. Lovely.

I wonder why they decided to release it so late? Isn't everything ready for a release? Is there something that needs to be done before to July 29th?

I surely hope this is not some pathetic attempt to drum up hype by making people wait by T-mo. People have been waiting for this phone for a long time. No need to make them wait more.

It was down to the myTouch 3G and the iPhone 3GS. The early release of the Pre made me take a look, but I passed. I really wanted the Samsung i7500 (galaxy), but when things ship out on Android time, it is s-l-o-w and I didn't want to wait for another 6mths+. I shudder to think when another Android phone will be RELEASED not announced to be released.

In the end I got the 3GS and I'm pretty happy with it- a myTouch release this month would have made me wait on my purchase and it was a serious contender, especially since the 3GS was a simple upgrade. But since I never had an smartphone, it was all new to me!

Why so slow to market, guys? I am disappointed with how Android products are announced, announced, announced... wait for it, wait for it a bit more, then released. A shock, "myTouch 3G on sale TODAY!" would have been awesome- it would have rocked the smartphone market. Even an announcement that it would be sold at the end of this month would have made me wait. Or how about July 1st? Independence day, open source, free yourself from the closed system? C'mon T-mo... that would have been so cool.

for the first time in my life
I actually have to laugh at you guys because of a phone
the US ALWAYS gets better phones for better prices sooner than Canada
but guess what?
we got the magic first AND we got it for 50 bucks less.. hah
though your contracts are still a million times better
and you do get it in 3 different colours..
we only have black. ugh
oh well

I'm tired waiting for the big monopoly US cell carriers to bring new Android phones here. If this Sciphone N12 android device is real, I'm jumping on this. ~$200 for unlocked android phone is a steal.
