T-Mobile myTouch Slide gets three paint jobs, Genius button, & Android 2.1
With more and more information regarding the T-Mobile myTouch Slide being revealed, it only fuels its eventual arrival. Today we find out that there are going to be a trio of colors that the device will sport when it's available and that the usual search button that we find so standard on most devices has been replaced. Instead of seeing the magnifying glass being used for the search button, the myTouch Slide opts to utilize the “Genius Button” that is easily seen with a “g” logo on the front – it's been seen that the “Genius Button” is actually an application on the device. Interestingly enough, we may soon see this thing becoming the standard as Google has even registered a trademark on the button itself. Finally, the device will offer Android 2.1 so it should please the many people out there looking – especially when there are still relatively few Android 2.1 handsets available on the market; no need to wait for an update at this point. Ultimately, it's just nice to see that this device is getting treated to some goodies that would normally be offered to higher-end smartphones.

Haha, I do agree with you on the keyboard part. It does look outdated but overall it's got a nice looking. Now it gets a white and red color, it should fit some girls' taste.

I dont know what phones you guys had in 2001, but functional spaced keyboards are not "2001" they are just efficient and great for the end users. We don't all have child fingers.
