T-Mobile’s myTouch 3G Slide becomes official

OK, I’m back from vacation and I need to catch up on some news! It looks like T-Mobile has finally announced the myTouch 3G Slide, the Android phone I think many G1 users will upgrade to. Of course it’s exclusive to T-Mobile and it will be available in June in three colors: black, white or red. There’s not much we didn’t already know about the myTouch Slide but see the excerpt from the Press Release and few press photos below.

Powered by the Android 2.1 software, the myTouch 3G Slide offers a rich mobile Web experience and access to thousands of applications on Android Market from games to location-based social networks to on-the-go shopping and more. Similar to the original, the new myTouch 3G Slide was designed to facilitate personalization inside and out. A five-pane home screen, with the option to increase to seven panes, offers plenty of real estate for your favorite widgets, applications and themes.

Designed by HTC exclusively for T-Mobile, the myTouch 3G Slide features a 3.4-inch HVGA touch-screen display with virtual keyboard as well as a roomy, slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Less than 15mm thick, the elegant design slides easily into your pocket proving that Android brains don’t have to come in a sci-fi box. The myTouch 3G Slide also features a 5-megapixel camera, a music player with a pre-installed 8GB microSD memory card, and enhanced video capabilities to make it easy for users to record and share pictures and videos, whether via e-mail, MMS or one-click upload to sites such as YouTube™ and Picasa™.
