Earlier this month, we received the first word of the T-Mobile myTouch Slide and now we have some nice clear images. The myTouch Slide has been pegged for May 17, 2010 and is rumored to feature Android 2.1 with the latest HTC Sense UI (Espresso). We expect this device to replace the current myTouch 3G phone and be the new entry level Android device for T-Mobile.
The design of the phone is pretty standard stuff, with the exception of the buttons on the front of the phone. There is a button that looks like people where we would normally expect to find the search button. T-Mobile did away with their My Faves plans last year, so we are not sure what this button represents. HTC has also done away with the standard trackball and replaced it with a squircle trackpad.
Given that this is clearly a low-end Android phone, how much do you think it should retail for? I’m guessing it will drop at no more than $149 with 2yr contract and I’d like to see it under $99 (with 2yr).
Rumored myTouch Slide specs include:
- 1300mAHr Battery
- MicroSD memory cardslot is accessible without battery removal. It is a push to insert and push to remove design.
- Optical trackpad with an integrated push button.
- Camera with LED flash.
- 3.5 mm Headset Jack
- Slide-out 4 row QWERTY keyboard
- 320Ã—48o screen resolution.
- ARM11 processor.
