MyTouch 4G Slide

The T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide (the one with the awesome camera) will be hitting the shelves come July 27, with a pre-sales campaign starting July 19.  The new slider is a very nice upgrade from the original MyTouch 4G, or the MyTouch 3G Slide, with a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon, Android 2.3 with Sense 3.0, and a 3.7 inch WVGA LCD screen.  But the real standout looks to be the camera -- HTC promises zero shutter lag on the 8MP camera, with a backside illuminated sensor and an f/2.2 aperture.  Add in some great supporting software, complete with HDR capabilities, and it sounds like a winner.

According to a T-Mobile press release, the availability and pricing details are:

The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide will be available exclusively from T-Mobile on July 27 at T-Mobile retail stores and through select national retailers and dealers. A Web-only pre-sale at will kick off on July 19. Offered in two colors – black and khaki, the myTouch 4G Slide will cost $199.99 with a two-year service agreement and qualifying unlimited data plan after a $50 mail-in-rebate.

I'm already pestering Phil to get my hands on one, so we'll be sure to give it the once over.  While we wait, chat it up in the MyTouch 4G Slide forums!

T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide coming July 27, pre-order starts July 19


O man I hope this phone is fast on the homescreen than the sensation, if it is ill get it, the camera is probably what got to me which i love clearshot HDR

This phone will be the most powerful QWERTY keyborad Android phone on the market, -- yes, even more powerful than the upcoming Droid 3. I have an Evo 3D, but I have to take my hat off to this phone. If only it wasn't so ugly.

The lack of a QHD screen should allow that dual core w/ Adreno sing on that baby. Couple that with that powerful camera, and we have a winner. Again, if it wasn't so damn ugly!

I know quite a few people on T-Mobile. So, far, I have recommended the Sensation and the G2X, but if they need a QWERTY Keyboard, I would tell them to give this phone a look.
