The HTC-made T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide has show up in a couple of out-of-focus shots. Some specs were confirmed, but others were refuted – most notably the 3D screen rumor is apparently false.
The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide initially leaked through an XML as the HTC Doubleshot and there was even a camera sample from Picasa. Later we found out that “Doubleshot” was the codename for T-Mobile USA’s myTouch 4G Slide.
The new photos confirm that this droid is running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0. The screen is reportedly nothing special and not 3D as initial rumors suggested. Neither is the 8MP camera on the back of the myTouch 4G Slide (so, Doubleshot didn’t refer to two cameras).
Anyway, the device supposedly runs much faster than the myTouch 4G (1GHz Scorpion) and was as smooth as the Sensation, which seems to confirm the 1.2GHz dual-core CPU on the myTouch 4G.
The phone has a metal back cover and the slide-out QWERTY keyboard was comparable to that of the T-Mobile G2. The screen has WVGA resolution, though there’s still no info on its size.
The leaked T-Mobile USA roadmap pegs the myTouch 4G Slide for a 6 July launch but we haven’t seen confirmation of that yet. The roadmap did prove accurate for a couple of other T-Mobile phones though.
How come there are more decent physical qwerty androids available in the US than there are in the uk? Would love this or the merge
Maybe this (not the first one) fad of stereoscopy (not "3D"; rumours weren't about volumetric or holographic screen, I'm sure) is starting to die out; again. How stereo screens limit perceived brightness to ~40% should be the _first_ hint, ...
this is a really good news!c'mon tel to the others whats on this.
