The guitar styled hotness that was the MyTouch 3G Fender Edition is no more – the device has sold out. Rumor also has it that regular MyTouch 3G phones are low on supply as the Black MyTouch 3G is no longer an option for upgraders.
The likely cause? A MyTouch 1.2 that adds a 3.5mm headset jack taking over. A label for an accessory recently divulged that probability:
The Fender Edition MyTouch ALSO had a 3.5mm headset jack but the MyTouch 1.2 doesn’t get graced by Eric Clapton and Fender’s presence. Instead, you’ll just have the option of plugging your everyday headphones in.
I doubt they’ll rename the device, probably just continue calling it the MyTouch 3G but only offering the one variation. I could be wrong – thoughts? Pencil in February 10th on your calendar for this one.
