myTouch 3G with 3.5mm jack gets T-Mobile “coming soon” listing

T-Mobile USA have thrown up their latest Android handsets, though don't get too excited: we're looking at a basic refresh with nothing more than a 3.5mm headphone jack to tempt you.  The T-Mobile myTouch 3G has been updated with that much-prized socket, rather than demanding you use either HTC's ExtUSB handsfree kit or the cumbersome adapter.

Update: Pricing details and news on more memory after the cut

What we don't know yet is how much the new versions - which will be released in black and white - will cost.  Nor have T-Mobile confirmed release dates; both smartphones are merely shown as "coming soon", and there are no product pages as yet.

It seems likely that the new myTouch 3G will be significantly cheaper than the myTouch 3G Fender Edition, which currently retails for $179.99 with a new contract, if only because it comes with a microSD card that, at 8GB, is half the size.  We'll keep an eye on the T-Mobile site to see if they add up any more information.

Update: T-Mobile USA have been in touch to confirm that the new myTouch 3G is available from today, priced at $149.99 with a new agreement.  As well as the 3.5mm headphone socket it now has 288MB of memory and Swype preinstalled.
