T-Mobile myTouch 4G

Good news, myTouch 4G owners: your helping of Gingerbread may soon be here! According to a post on the official T-Mobile support forums, the myTouch 4G's helping of Android 2.3.3 will begin with a limited pilot release on July 20th. This means that users that request the update tomorrow should begin seeing it that same day. T-Mobile says that a broader rollout of the update will kick off sometime in the coming weeks. What kinds of goodies can you expect inside this particular update? Glad you asked:

New features:

  • 2010 Exchange compatibility
  • New version of Swype
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS

Improved issues:

  • Bluetooth audio works better when answering a call from phone and Bluetooth is paired
  • Display is more stable and responsive during boot up or use
  • Domestic roaming data connection is more stable
  • Message inbox saves
  • Various software and stability improvements

Sounds like a pretty worthwhile update, no? Unfortunately, we're still waiting on word concerning the Android 2.3 updates for other high-profile T-Mobile Android phones like the G2 and G2x, but it's still good to see another phone crossed off the Gingerbread waiting list.
