More myTouch Slide pics and details leak

Remember all those Nexus One leaks before the official launch? Google handed out a sizable number of units to their employees (in order to test out) and new details began to emerge day by day until it was finally announced.

T-Mobile appears to have taken a similar strategy with their new myTouch Slide. Our sources tell us a select group of employees obtained myTouch Slide demo units last week in Las Vegas and new details are beginning to pop up over the web.

TmoNews has posted several new pics that show off the Slide in black and red. The phone is running the latest Android 2.1 with HTC’s new Sense UI codename Espresso. This is the same UI we saw from the leaked Espresso ROM back in January, but it has the new Sense UI features like Leap (pinch zoom homescreen).

No official specs have been revealed, but we are hearing it will be an improvement over the original T-Mobile myTouch 3G. At first I was told the device would feature the same 600 MHz CPU as the HTC Legend (MSM7227), but new information suggest it could be clocked up to 750 MHz. That is an odd clock cycle for a processor, so I’m not sure which model Qualcomm they are using yet.

The myTouch Slide is rumored for a May release date and has already appeared on the FCC’s site.

    It looks better then the failflip.

  • juanito

    Why not cover all the bases and call it a “My Slide Kick Touch”?

  • http://Website Christopher

    If it wasnt running Sense and just stock 2.1 i would buy it because it has a keyboard. But i guess ill just stick with my g1 for a couple more months running cyanogen

      You can turn Sense off and use vanilla Android. I prefer the stock UI as well.

      I don’t know the rules on linking to other android blogs so Google “turn sense off on htc hero” and hit up the first result.

        the bonus of having stock vanilla android is you get updates to the new version of android faster not having to wait for sense layer put on.

      All HTC phones are very hackable. If you already run a custom ROM on your G1, why not hack your new Slide and do the same?

    This is only the first of many Android-based smartphones that T-Mobile USA is going to produce in 2010 in order to market their upgraded network plans (HSPA+) which include various data plans, numerous alterations in values for the text messaging, and of course the “rumored” PERKS! Some of those are going to be: Barnes & Noble vouchers, Subway gift cards, T-Mobile retail locations (accessory gift cards), and credit amounts that can be used for your billing cycle. Soon folks, just be patient.

    will the regular mytouch have sense when its upgraded to 2.1?

  • http://Website craigers

    Not interested. I love t-mobile but I’ll stick with my beloved MyTouch 3G. Slide phones look nasty anyway. It’s 2010 use the screen keyboard. :-)
