T-Mobile myTouch Slide details slip out

Remember those myTouch Slide pictures that leaked out in January? Details have been scarce since that time, but new evidence of the phone is beginning to spill out. First the myTouch Slide appeared in Radio Shack’s Direct2U system and now the device has been spotted on the FCC’s site.

The pictures from the FCC’s site resemble earlier photos leaked in January. The back of the Slide looks exactly like the original myTouch (HTC Magic) with the addition of a flash above the camera.

Speculation posted over at TmoNews suggest the Slide could drop May 15, 2010, but we know how carriers love to change these dates before launch. T-Mobile has invested a lot in their myTouch brand, so we truly believe this phone will get a big marketing push when it is released.

Not a lot is known about the specs of the device, but it is expected to be a mid-range phone running Android 2.1. It is rumored to have an ARM11 based processor like first gen Android phones, but it should be a newer Qualcomm model (like the 600 MHz MSM7227 used in the HTC Legend).

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
  • 320×480 screen resolution.
  • ARM11 processor.
