MyTouch 3G on sale, skydivers celebrate

T-Mobile's MyTouch 3G finally goes on sale. To celebrate, T-Mobile sends skydivers to San Francisco.

T-Mobile's second Google Android phone, the MyTouch 3G, lands in stores and online today. The all touch-screen device goes on sale 10 months after the G1 made its debut. We've already had the opportunity to give it a thorough shakedown, and we found a lot to like. The sleeker design, improved features, and user-friendly controls fix many of our complaints with its predecessor. Yes, it lacks a physical keyboard, but we didn't mind. Some complaints remain, of course, but the MyTouch convinces us that Android is ready for prime time.

To celebrate the event, T-Mobile is holding a public relations brouhaha in San Francisco. If they can make it through the normal summer fog, 100 skydivers will descend on three different points around the city. And if that's not enough, the skydivers, one of whom will be dressed like Elvis, will be joined by skywriting airplanes. CNET TV's Molly Wood will be there to catch the action.

If you'd rather just buy the phone, you'll pay $199.99 for the privilege, and you'll need to sign a new contract and secure a data plan.
