On the inside, you'll get an included 16GB MicroSD card that ensures you'll fit your music library in the palm of your hand, a set of preloaded songs from Eric Clapton, Wyclef Jean, and other artists, and a few musically inclined apps like Guitar: Solo. Running Android 1.6 (an upgrade to 2.1 is expected this Spring), you'll get direct access to Google tools like Picasa, Google Maps, and YouTube, as well as customized screens. On the outside, the Fender MyTouch is coming with custom Fender shells, a Fender carrying case, and the "Rock Dock" — a docking station with speakers.
Earlier this week, we got the ball rolling on our fun best of polls when I asked you: What is your favorite social networking site of 2009? Well now I'm turning the attention to another popular topic of '09 — cell phones! Last year seemed to be all about the iPhone 3G, but this year, we not only got our hands on a new iPhone 3GS, but some pretty fancy BlackBerrys, Android handsets, and impressive smartphones from Palm. There was certainly a lot of pretty new smartphones to choose from, but which one did you like the best?

As much as I love the sun and the fun that Summer brings, the Fall season has a special place in my heart. My must haves for August were definitely fresh for Fall, but this month brings exciting new games, consoles, cell phones, and operating systems — oh me oh my! And I can't help but think about Christmas, which seems to be right around the corner. Some of my picks this month are certainly going to be hot this holiday season, so make sure you pick one up before they are sold out!

This month has been a busy one for new apps, video games, cameras, and even cell phones. Wondering what's the latest in the cell phone/smartphone world? I've rounded up all the newbies for your viewing pleasure.
I told you yesterday that you can head over to your nearest T-Mobile store and pick up your own myTouch, but what I didn't tell you was that there was a major party going down for its launch. Not only was Elvis on hand to welcome the newest Android phone to the market, but skydivers and a full-on jet flyby completed the ceremony.
I can't wait to get my hands on the G1 predecessor and try out all the customizations, so keep your eyes peeled for a review coming up soon! In the meantime, check out lots of photos from the event in San Francisco yesterday when you read more
This touchscreen 3G beauty, which I've already ooowed and awwed over, will cost $199.99 with a new contract and data plan. The MyTouch 3G is also highly customizable with cool skins, accessories, and widgets.
I'm all for GPS devices, but I just love the idea of using navigation services on your cell phone, so you don't get stuck carrying around another device. Already compatible with the T-Mobile G1, various BlackBerry phones and the iPhone, the TeleNav GPS Navigator app will soon be available to use on the MyTouch 3G smartphone.Starting tomorrow, customers will be able to test drive the TeleNav navigation app free for 30 days and then it will be $10 after that. The MyTouch 3G will be able to display full-color traffic conditions, the weather, and accept voice commands.
