This one's a little thin, but it's been a slow news day so what the heck ...
David over at TmoNews swears up and down - or blogged, anyway - that a trusted source got wind of some kind of a "new" G1 coming from T-Mobile soon and a myTouch 3G Version 2 already on tap for next year:
First, MyTouch is now considered a franchise name for T-mobile. ThinkSidekick. Other details were pretty sparse, but apparently topics ofdiscussion were a ?new? G1 coming 'soon? and the MyTouch2, coming 2010.
On the one hand, the first myTouch 3G hasn't even hit stores yet, but it's also customary for carriers and handset makers to plan their product lines a year or two in advance, so it's certainly feasible that the next myTouch is already on a product roadmap PowerPoint deck somewhere in Tmo-Land.
What's more interesting for right now is that that bit about a new G1 coming "soon." Literally, that's what TmoNews says: "soon." Like, with the quotes and everything.
Given that T-Mobile's CTO made no bones about calling myTouch 3G the carrier's flagship Android phone for the rest of 2009, I have to guess that we're looking at a minor refresh to the G1, if this information is valid. T-Mo's done it before, with the Dash 2.0, so a G1 2.0 could certainly be possible for the holiday shopping season. Maybe with an integrated 3.5mm headphone jack and a better keyboard? That'd be kinda nice, right?
