Google Android fans can now buy the new T-Mobile MyTouch 3G at 4,000 Radio Shack stores nationwide. The price will remain the same ($199), but you'll be able to purchase the phone, sign a contract, pay your upgrade fee , and pick up that plug adapter that you've been meaning to get. Radio Shack, that now annoyingly calls itself "The Shack," has long carried smartphones from most major carriers, but this is the first time it will offer an Android handset.

T-Mobile also announced--actually, it twittered--that its 3G network is now live in Knoxville, Tenn., and the Connecticut cities of Waterbury, Bridgeport, Hartford, and New Haven. Now you have five more cities to use your MyTouch.
