T-Mobile announces myTouch 4G Slide with launch set for July
T-Mobile officially introduced the myTouch 4G Slide, which, right off the bat, you can see will offer some tough competition for the Motorola DROID 3. The myTouch 4G Slide has a 3.7 inch WVGA Super LCD display with a 4 row QWERTY keyboard that slides out in landscape orientation. A 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor is under the hood.

Manufactured by HTC, of course, the handset offers Sense 3.0 on top of Android 2.3. Netflix is pre-installed on the phone, as well as Swype and Qik mobile video chat. T-Mobile has some pre-installed apps on board like T-Mobile TV and T-Mobile KidZone. The Genius button is back with support from Nuance's Dragon Dictation, to take your verbal commands and Bobsled's Group Text allows you to send out SMS messages to groups of friends.

The myTouch 4G Slide is touted to have the "most advanced camera of any smartphone". The 8MP rear camera comes with AF, dual LED flash and offers ClearShot HDR so you can pictures with high dynamic range. BurstShot allows you to take a "burst" of photos quickly so you can grab that perfect shot. T-Mobile also says that the rear camera has "Zero shutter lag" allowing you to press the shutter and take a picture instantly. Another advertised feature is the SweepShot for panorama pictures. And with a wide f/2.2 aperture lens and a backside illuminated sensor, pictures can be taken under low light conditions. Video can be captured at 1080p resolution.

The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide is expected to launch next month in black or kakhi; pricing of the unit was not disclosed.

Says right on tmos website it is $199, believe for a new customer. Only thing I'd like this phone to have is some boosted internal memory. I havent found anything that says that.
