Music lovers and especially Eric Clapton fans could not help admiring the upcoming myTouch 3G phone. Christened as myTouch 3G Fender, the Android powered cell phone created by HTC for the US carrier T-Mobile flaunts a design inspired by the sunburst finish of the Fender guitar. Moreover, this sleek T-Mobile Android phone will be endorsed by the legendary Fender guitarist Eric Clapman.
myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition features
Besides the Fender guitar sunburst finish of the casing, the special edition myTouch 3G phone will come with several Fender inspired accessories. Customers could get a Fender carrying case, Fender shells and Fender screen protector. Rock Dock, which is a rocking station with speakerphone, is also available for the myTouch Limited Edition phone users.
Music lovers will appreciate this phone for the Eric Clapton classics preloaded in the handset. You could switch on the integrated music player of the T-Mobile handset and listen to ‘Wonderful Tonight’, ‘My Father’s Eyes’, ‘Rock N Roll Heart’ and ‘Layla’. Besides the preloaded Clapton creations, songs by Brad Paisley, Wyclef Jean and Avril Lavigne are also preloaded in the myTouch 3G Fender handset. This limited edition myTouch 3G phone sports an upgraded music player with an improved intuitive user interface developed by HTC.
By touching the album art, users could change songs and albums. The myTouch 3G Fender will be the first T-Mobile device to sport doubleTwist, a multimedia sync solution.
