We all know that the HTC Magic will wash up on American shores at some point but the question of ‘under what name?’ has been often debated. We’ve thought/assumed that the name would be the T-Mobile G2 but a new screenshot of a computer displaying T-Mobile product inventory suggests otherwise. The HTC Magic might just come to T-Mobile USA as the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G.
The new (still a rumor) name isn’t the only thing suggested by this screenshot. The fact that it is listed in the inventory means it is one step closer to launch – a reason to cheer for sure. And below the magenta highlighted line in the pic above we see it will be available in Merlot – pretty sweet!
One thing I didn’t see mentioned elsewhere… why does it appear that the MyTouch has a 0.00 to the right of it? Surely it won’t be available for free on 2-year contract after rebate? I’m guestting they simply haven’t yet set the price or the zeros indicate it is not yet available for sale – you can see the “179” of the G1 listed right above it.
And speaking of G1, can we assume that G2/G3/etc… will be names reserved for the next generation models of the G1, as in, the same form factor? If the MyTouch name is true then I am guessing this is the case. Agree or disagree?
