The Limited Edition Fender myTouch is set to be in stores by January 20, the same date on which Eric Clapton's personal myTouch commercial will air. As the name implies, there will be a limited supply of these phones, which will cost $179.99 with a new two-year service plan.

The Limited Edition Fender myTouch 3G has a new casing, inspired by Fender's sunburst-finish. The phone will also have new accessories for further customization, including Fender-branded shells, a Fender carrying case, and a "Rock Dock," a docking station with speakers. The Limited Edition Fender myTouch also has a 3.5mm headphone jack and ships with a 16GB microSD card.

The phone, which runs Android 1.6 (will be updated to Android 2.1 in the spring), Google's mobile OS, will ship preloaded with Clapton faves, including "Layla," "My Father's Eyes," "Rock 'N' Roll Heart," and "Wonderful Tonight," as well as music from other T-Mobile campaigners Brad Paisley, Avril Lavigne, and Wyclef Jean. The myTouch will also include a new music player (which will allow customers to create ring-tones from songs), and preloaded music apps such as "Guitar: Solo" and "Musical Light."

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
