T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide ready to slide out starting on June 2 for $179.99
The first week of June is shaping up to become one healthy show for Android as the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide officially received a release date and pricing. Falling in much earlier than what was previously expected, the myTouch 3G Slide will be making an appearance in both direct and indirect retail locations starting on June 2nd for $179.99 on-contract. Going to be available in either black, white, or red, the $179.99 pricing after a $50 mail-in-rebate may seem a bit much for this device – especially when you compare its specs to what's offered with the HTC EVO 4G. However, we're confident that there are individuals out there that won't mind paying for the premium that will of course come packed with a physical QWERTY keyboard. Although some have billed it to be the successor to the aging Android forefather in the T-Mobile G1, we'll see if the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide can be regarded as a decent offering.

Priced far to high handset that compares to the droid but not the incredible or nexus one, nor any of the other soon to be released high end android phones that are all selling for about $200.

Exactly, this phone is way too expensive, Free + 2 year contract (with data probably) is more reasonable. Is this phone also made by HTC like the G1? I forgot, hehe

In a few months the price will go down, but for now it's T-Mobiles Flavor Of The Month. So why charge $129.99 if they think people are willing to it buy it for $179.99. T-Mobile has marketed the My Touch line well and this one will just add to it.

Most likely will drop to $150 a month after release. $180 would be on "ok" price but the rebate makes it very unappealing. Nobody likes waiting for rebates and I think it is stupid Tmobile added rebates to all the data phones after not requiring it for a while.
