After several leaks T-Mobile has finally listed the myTouch 4G Slide on its US site as a coming soon handset. The HTC-made handset will be available for as low as $199.99 on a two-year bond with "America's largest 4G network", starting next month. There are no specifics on the required monthly fee just yet or any mentions of a potential SIM-free deal.
The phone will be offered in two color versions - white and "khaki" (meaning a beige spinoff) and will be exclusively offered by T-Mobile.
The myTouch 4G Slide is joining the already pretty large family of droids on the T-Mobile shelves. Its myTouch 4G keyboard-less brother and myTouch 3G Slide predecessors were quite popular so expectations for this one will be high too.
The myTouch4G Slide brings along a 3.7" S-LCD display, the latest Android meant for smartphones, Gingerbread 2.3, a dual-core Snapdragon processor, FullHD 1080p video recording and an 8 MP camera. T-Mobile were keen to brag that the myTouch 4G Slide camera packs an ultra bright f/2.2 lens, just like the Nokia N9, which should benefit its low-light performance.
Naturally the smartphone also offers HSPA+ support, meaning downlink speeds of up to 21 Mbps and uplink of 5.76 Mbps. Oh and a full physical QWERTY keyboard, which slides out from its body.
With a specs sheet like that the myTouch 4G will surely be a great catch for Android enthusiasts with a thing for texting.
And here goes a short promo video, demonstrating the myTouch 4G Slide camera prowess.
Not bad. Good to see a modern Android 2.3 phone with a physical keyboard.
Will this come to europe ?
