T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide gets July 27th launch date; pre-orders accepted July 19th
At this point, it might not be a surprise but it is still nice to know that the rumored July 27th launch date for the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide is now official. A web only pre-sale will begin July 19th from http://mytouch.t-mobile.com/4g-slide. The phone, available in black and khaki, will have a price tag of $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a signed two-year contract.

The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide has some pretty impressive specs, but the real excitement here is the camera, as we have shown you. HTC says there is zero shutter lag on the 8MP shooter which offers an f/2.2 aperture. Video can be captured at 1080p and panoramic and burst shots can be made. Besides the camera, the device has a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and a 3.7 inch WVGA display. On board is HTC Sense 3.0 on top of Android 2.3. Of course, there is a side sliding landscape-oriented QWERTY keyboard which explains the term "Slide" in the device's name.

As far as T-Mobile is concerned, this could be quite an interesting competitor to the just launched Motorola DROID 3 at Verizon.

Unlikely, for a hardware update at least. The next generation would be more likely to expect something similar to this. It is also unlikely that you may even see another generation MyTouch phone seeing as the At&T-Mobile Merger is expected to close as early as March 2012. I hope that the company created after the merger continues T-Mobiles history of taking risks on hardware and software. It is in part thanks to that culture that Android is where it stands today.
