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 http://mytouch.t-mobile.com/4g-slide 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!
