It looks like the previously rumored date of August 5 was accurate as T-Mobile has officially announced that the myTouch 3G general availability is beginning today.
Overall, aside from the actual date, the details are the same as what we have already seen with the pre-orders. In other words, the myTouch 3G is going to retail for $199.99 with a two-year agreement and will be available in black, white and merlot.
Despite, not being shocked by the general availability release details, T-Mobile does apparently have something fun planned in San Francisco for the official announcement.
“To celebrate its arrival, T-Mobile is aiming high and plans to launch an aerial spectacle in the sky over San Francisco. Today at noon PDT, 100 skydivers, each dressed as unique personalities to reflect the individuality of the myTouch experience, will colorfully parachute in synchronized formations over the city.”
Of course, if you are not in San Francisco, your excitement will have to come from just being able to head into your local T-Mobile retail location and picking up a myTouch 3G of your own.
