The T-Mobile myTouch 3G is temporarily available for half price, thanks to a spacial deal cooked up between T-Mobile and Oprah Winfrey.
This Android-based smartphone debuted just last month, and ordinarily wouldn’t be available at a special price yet, but it was featured today on the season opening episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show. As part of a related promotion, customers can get this device for $100 with a two-year contract.

An overview of the T-Mobile myTouch 3G
This model offers consumers a much slimmer option than this company’s first Android model, the T-Mobile G1, by leaving off the built-in keyboard.
It has tablet shape with a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen and a trackball on its front. For text input, it depends on a virtual keyboard, which can change orientation automatically from portrait to landscape mode, depending on how it is held.
With the name “myTouch 3G” it’s no surprise that this phone supports T-Mobile’s high-speed network; it also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
The Android OS was created by Google, and has strong ties to this company’s online services for email, calendar, navigation, and more.
Other consumer-friendly features in the myTouch 3G include a multimedia player, built-in 3.2-megapixel camera, and more. To make full use of these features, the myTouch 3G comes with a GPS receiver and a 4 GB microSD memory card for storing music, videos, and images.
It is available in three colors: black, white and red.
