T-Mobile myTouch 4G

HTC ThunderBolt, T-Mobile G2, DROID Incredible, and EVO 4G. What do all of these devices have in common, besides the fact that they're made by HTC? They're all rumored to be getting an update to Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread, sometime before the end of June. Today we can add another device to that list, as our friends at TmoNews have been handed a screenshot which purportedly shows an HTC representative revealing that the myTouch 4G will be updated to Gingerbread in Q2. There's no mention of exactly when the update will arrive, but TmoNews has heard that myTouch 4G-toting T-Mobile sales reps will be testing 2.3 over the next few weeks and that the new software could launch shortly after the test period ends.

Considering that several of HTC's other high-end Android phones are rumored to be getting an update to Gingerbread in Q2, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that the myTouch 4G could be given the same treatment. When it'll actually arrive is anyone's guess, but you can be sure that we'll let you know more when we do.

Brian Childs Yes look at what they sent me: "Dear Brian, Good question, Brian! We understand how important it is to have the latest updates for your device. I'm happy to inform you that your phone, the HTC MyTouch 4G is definately on our list to recieve the 2.3 Android OS update. At this time, we don't have an exact launch date. However, we estimate that it will be available in the second quarter of 2011 (anywhere from the beginning of April, to the end of June), assuming that there are no major setbacks. Once we have a better idea of when this update will be availble for your phone, we'll be sure to announce it through Facebook"

Kody Lanes
Kody Lanes Why would anyone still have this phone? I mean if you must be on t-mobile (which I don't recommend) you should at least have a galaxy s 4G or the G2X the mytouch line has always been an EPIC FAILURE!!! MAKING ANDROID AS A WHOLE LOOK BAD... If you want a real android experience go to Verizon and grab yourself a THUNDERBOLT out the up&coming SAMSUNG DROID CHARGE....
