T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide Details

Details surrounding T-Mobile’s next Android handset, the myTouch Slide, are starting to come together.  We know that the handset will come in black, red, and white iterations thanks to recently leaked photos.  In the last few days, we’ve also learned that the phone is to be called the myTouch 3G Slide, keeping with the naming scheme from earlier T-Mobile models.  As next month’s rumored release approaches, the hardware and software picture is becoming clearer. 

AndroidAndMe was able to get a virtual hands-on with the phone and shared their reaction.  According to them, the phone makes for a great upgrade to the G1 and fills the gap between first generation handsets and tomorrow’s super phones.

Here’s what we are tentatively expecting out of the handset:

  • 600 MHz ARM11 processor
  • 512 MB ROM / 512 MB RAM
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, autofocus
  • 8GB microSD card
  • Android 2.1, Sense UI
  • Proximity sensor
  • Light sensor
  • Optical trackpad
  • Multi-touch in Browser, Gallery, and Maps
  • 1300 mAh battery
  • Pre-loaded apps include AppPack, My Account, myTouch Music, Quick Office, and Abduction
  • Swype is preset as default keyboard with options to change to HTC’s version or Dragon Dictionary.

With roughly one month to go before the phone is slated to drop, we expect to see some leaks regarding the pricing.  Anyone have a guess as to what the myTouch 3G Slide will run?

    I love my Nexus One but terribly miss the keyboard that I had on my G1. Might this be an answer? The speed of the Nexus is nice but Sense UI and a keyboard are tempting and I might just sell the Nexus for one of these puppies.

    Disappointing. It should at least have a 1Ghz processor. The market is hungry for an Android phone thats quick, with an decent keyboard! And with HTC already having a number of phones with 1Ghz processors, it should not be as costly to create quicker phones anymore.

    Some of us don't care about flash. It is a proprietary technology that is controlled by Adobe. I personally have no use for it on my computers and can't imagine I'd ever need it on my phone. If a web site's design does not accommodate and assumes flash is installed (usually designed by clueless Windows/Mac pundits), I close my tab and move on.

    Pretty simple…

      C'mon guys. Why don't we get phones with 2.4Ghz Core2Duo processors? This is getting ridiculous. With the 3-4x speedup via JIT coming online in Froyo, 600Mhz will be more than fast enough for anyone.. While 1Ghz is nice, it will only use up more battery.

    ARM11 600MHz processor is not enough to qualify for Flash 10.1. Is T-Mobile interested in having a next-generation Android phone? Besides of course the Nexus One, which is obviously available on all carriers through Google.

    In a nutshell, he finds that interior defenders (safeties and inside linebackers) are much more likely to be done by age 30 than perimeter players (cornerbacks and outside linebackers).
