T-Mobile announced the myTouch 4G Slide today, adding another device to its steadily growing lineup of 4G-ready handsets.
Powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, this smartphone designed by HTC will run Google Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread) with the HTC Sense overlay.
Aside from being connected to T-Mobile’s 4G network, other features of the myTouch 4G Slide will include a 3.7-inch WVGA (800 x 480) super LCD Touchscreen with Swype, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
A Camera-centric Handset
It is going to have the ability for users to edit their videos directly on the device. Indeed, the myTouch 4G Slide is going to have a special focus on camera features, with T-Mobile advertising the phone’s zero shutter lag, backside illuminated sensor, and the ability to take burst shots and “sweeping, ultrawide” panoramic shots.
In addition to its 8-megapixel camera with a dual LED flash, the device is also capable of taking 1080p HD video, and its one-touch upload feature allows users to instantly share photos and videos on the outlet of their choice.
Price and Release Date
The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide will be available in black or khaki colors and is slated for a July release. Exactly when it will debut next month is not yet known, and probably hasn’t yet been decided on.
This smartphone is going to go for $200 with a two-year service agreement and after a $50 mail-in rebate.
