T-Mobile announced Thursday a new Limited Edition myTouch 3G: Fender/Eric Clapton Edition android-based phone aimed at hardcore fans of the rock legend.

A few nifty features, including preloaded songs and apps, ensure that this new Limited Edition myTouch will make for a great mobile music experience.

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."

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
