What is wrong with this ad?
Remember when you were a kid and every month you would get excited when the new Highlights came to you via the U.S. Mail?  Some of you quickly opened up the magazine to read about bi-polar disease in the form of those twins, Gofus and Gallant. Gallant was the do-gooder, helping the single Mother across the street while carrying her groceries and showing her how to copy and paste on the iPhone 3GS. Gofus was the Yang to Gallant's Yin. He would be more likely to kick an old lady's cane out from under her, steal her groceries, and replace her Jitterbug with a Motorola BACKFLIP. Other features included the Timbertoes, a nuclear family made out of wood, and a picture where you had to find certain items hidden in the drawing (Find a Chipmunk's head, a Palm Pre Plus buyer, etc.). Well, speaking of finding something in a picture, we bring you what appears to be an advertisement branded with the T-Mobile name, for the myTouch 3G. There is a major mistake in the copy, brought to the attention to Tmo News by a sharp eyed-reader. Can YOU find the mistake in this ad?

do a little hacking/rom switching... and this ad could be true!... But I can definitely see some people calling into t-mobile asking for exchanges because they don't have motoblur. And to be completely honest, I wish t-mobile would stop advertising this phone as it's most exclusive... its not that nice and that commercial can work with any android phone.

Wait a sec. Is the Motoblur the only issue? The Mytouch doesn't have a 5mp camera...i thought it had the same 3.2 that the G1 did. Someone at Tmo fails bigtime.

That's kinda hard to miss. Pretty big mistake. I don't think the mytouch wil ever get blur, it's becoming an 'old' phone. And how does that long and pointless story fit into this?

even if the mytouch was new, it wouldnt get blur because it's blur is MOTOROLA's UI. Mytouch is an HTC product...

I think they just need to replace the picture with a CLIQ and change the name

Well... the MyTouch is an HTC phone... not motorola... If anything it would have Sense UI, not motoblur. But it has neither.
