T-Mobile Officially Announces The MyTouch 4G Slide

T-Mobile continues to push on with business as usual while everyone else is talking about their pending merger with AT&T.  Today T-Mobile announced the latest edition to their T-Mobile MyTouch line, the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G.  Over the past few weeks leaks about the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide became more and more frequent.  Just prior to the announcement T-Mobile teased the world with a puzzle featuring a slide in it.

The MyTouch line is manufactured by HTC exclusively for T-Mobile and targets a broad range of T-Mobile customers.  The T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide brings some very cool new features to the Android based phone.

The MyTouch 4G Slide features a 3.7″ beautiful WVGA super LCD touchscreen display with Swype. There is also a slide out qwerty keyboard. Under the hood is a 1.2ghz dual core Qualcomm SnapDragon processor. Coupled with T-Mobile’s 4G network and you have the fastest MyTouch to date.

More after the break

In addition to the Android phone features, the MyTouch 4G Slide is packing digital camera features that are worthy of replacing a traditional point and shoot digital camera. According to T-Mobile the MyTouch 4G Slide incorporates these camera features:

  • Improved low-light Performance: with a backside illuminated sensor and a wide aperture lens (f/2.2)
  • ·         Zero shutter lag: innovative software features allow for an instantaneous shot at that precise moment
  • ·         SweepShot: for capturing panoramic shots by sweeping across an entire scene in a single motion
  • ·         ClearShot HDR: for capturing objects in bright settings so your photos are not affected by high-contrast lighting
  • ·         BurstShot: for capturing multiple photos in a quick burst so you don’t miss the perfect photo

T-Mobile is planning a July release for the MyTouch 4G Slide and a price of $199 after a $50 mail in rebate and on a new two year agreement.  Don’t let that little AT&T/T-Mobile business scare you out of a new 2 year agreement with T-Mobile. Should T-Mobile end up selling to AT&T you would be grandfathered into your original T-Mobile contract. When it ends you will have the option of taking a new AT&T contract or leaving the company all together.  The same option you’d have at the end of a two year agreement if T-Mobile wasn’t for sale.
