Yessir, the new myTouch 4G is indeed just around the corner, and would you believe what's right there with it: an entire collection of official T-Mobile accessories for the device. Now as you probably know, official accessories are rarely the best, but as you can see for yourself in the pictures below, these look to be an exception:

No word on pricing or release date just yet - this is, after all, just a sneak preview of the cases delivered through T-Mobile USA's Facebook account - but hopefully the cases won't end up being too pricey, for these could easily end up eliminating the need for third-party cases if they're as good as they look.

Yes, the new T-Mobile myTouch 4G will be launching on November 3rd, and yes, early adopters can now pre-order it from Wirefly, but guess what? The somewhat less popular Motorola Defy is in a similar predicament: its official launch date is November 3rd, and its official price tag is $99.99, but the Internet's #1 cell phone retailer is now allowing eager buyers to pre-order the military-grade device for just about half the official price - $49.99 on a new two-year contract.

T-Mobile's just released a Galaxy Tab-related announcement - and, surprise, surprise - their version of the tablet will be launching November 10th for $399.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. Unlike Verizon, though, you'll be stuck with a two-year data contract during which you'll be paying a "qualifying rate plan," with the only currently visible route out of the plan being a pricey $200 ETF. To add to those nasty fees, you'll also be coughing up $35 upon activation, which doesn't make us too happy.

The new myTouch 4G is around the corner, and today Wirefly was the first retailer on the web, from what I could tell, to launch preorders on 3 of the 4 color variants: black, white, and red.

The phone is available for $149.99 for new accounts and upgrades and $199.99 for family plans adding a new line.

As usual, Wirefly ships free (November 3rd) and doesn't charge tax in most states.

It could only last so long. Boy Genius Report received a tip today that T-Mobile USA is making preparations to follow other carriers' foot steps and is going to start charging for tethering on November 3rd. The $14.99 monthly plan is a surcharge on top of an obligatory $19.99 Unlimited Web plan, so don't go thinking you can replace one with the other.

T-Mobile was once praised for turning a blind eye to device tethering and portable WiFi hotspot functionality, but times are tough, so what better way to make money than charging customers for the same data twice?

Just a few days after the original myTouch 3G finishes receiving the Froyo update over-the-air, its direct successor with an independently confirmed to us myTouch 4G name (not HD) will be officially released. While the November 3 date has been rumored for some time, we now have official confirmation through a leaked internal e-mail:

The HSPA+ handset comes with a 5 megapixel camera, 3.8" display, front-facing camera, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, and the Espresso UI all on top of Android 2.2.

Seems like T-Mobile's looking to one-up Verizon on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, both when it comes to pricing and when it comes to the release date.

According to TmoNews' latest "dealer ninja" (the one who conjured the screenshot above), the Tab will be launching on November 10th, one day earlier than the date destined for Big Red's version of the tablet. While the screenie offers nothing in the way of price (other than "TBD"), the rumor mill's been there, done that, and pretty much confirmed that T-Mobile's Tab will be costing you $399 on contract and $649.99 off.

All together now: finally! After several broken promises and recalled updates, Samsung's just announced that Android 2.2 FroYo will be available through a "brand new version of Kies" (that's Samsung's software upgrade system) early in November for Galaxy S owners in the UK, while "all operator versions" are "expected" to be available by the end of November (hopefully that includes the "operator versions" of the Galaxy S that Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are currently carrying here in the States).

Looks like the new video-enabled Yahoo app wasn't the only thing ripped out of the leaked ROM for the new T-Mobile myTouch - the T-Mobile TV app, which is no unfamiliar sight, has just been pulled out of the ROM as well.

As we can see in the screenshot above, the interface is quite slick, with a nice black bar along the bottom to select content providers (FOX News, MSNBC, ABC News, CNBC, ESPN, and NBC Sports from what's visible).

It's certainly a good time to be in the market for a new flagship Android device, isn't it? Amazon is selling the Motorola Droid 2 for just $.01, and the HTC EVO 4G and Samsung Epic 4G for a cool $100. Lately, Amazon and Costco have been in a price war over the T-Mobile G2; Costco struck first, dropping the upgrade price to just $100 - to which Amazon replied by dropping the new contract price to $80.
