T-Mobile myTouch Slide in the wild, we're seriously not impressed by HTC's design skills on this occasion. Taken by a Droiddeveloper tipster, the shots show the rumored QWERTY handset (aka the Espresso or the myTouch2) complete with an optical trackpad. Other specifications apparently include a camera with LED flash, a 1,300mAh battery and a microSD card slot that's apparently accessible without requiring the battery be removed. The display is an HVGA 320 x 480 panel and under the hood there's an ARM11 processor rather than something more recent (and swift) like a Snapdragon. Considering the myTouch Slide was tipped to be replacing the Sidekick range, we can't imagine fashionistas being particularly keen either. Rumors suggest the handset will arrive on May 17th.

myTouch Slide, a hardware QWERTY-blessed version of the HTC Magic (aka T-Mobile myTouch 3G) didn't exactly stoke our excitement, but it seems T-Mobile USA may be more enthusiastic about the Android smartphone. According to BGR's source, the carrier is preparing to oust their long-running Sidekick range in favor of the Android-based myTouch Slide. While there's no confirmation from the carrier themselves, and the tipster is said to be a new one and not yet corroborated, if true the news could be a significant win for the Android platform. Sidekick handsets have proved popular with younger and less-tech-savvy customers wanting some of the connectivity and functionality of a mainstream smartphone; it's possible that T-Mobile and HTC could have worked together on the myTouch Slide to inject some of that ready usability into the new device. According to previous leaks, the T-Mobile myTouch Slide is set to arrive in the US on May 17th. [via SlashGear]
HTC Magic (aka T-Mobile myTouch 3G) rumor of the day, HTC are tipped to be readying a version of the handset with a QWERTY hardware keyboard. Signs of the new smartphone were found in a new user agent profile file, seemingly for a device with the same specifications as the original Magic but with the addition of a physical keyboard. Also curious is the name on that user agent profile. While HTC are listed as the handset manufacturer, the file itself seemingly comes from Google (at least going by the copyright details at the very top). That's led to some speculation that this could be the business-focussed Nexus device Google tipped earlier this month. While we've already seen what's rumored to be the Motorola Shadow, another QWERTY handset, potentially giving Google a choice of "best of breed" Android devices it could include in its store. Adding more confusion to the mixture, there's no sign of such a phone on the leaked 2010 HTC roadmap. [via CellPassion - thanks Andy!] Update: TMoNews are saying that an Android device known as the T-Mobile myTouch Slide (aka myTouch 2) is tipped to arrive on May 17th. That's believed to be the successor to the original myTouch 3G, and add a slide-out QWERTY keyboard together with black, red or white casings. [via The Unlockr]
T-Mobile and HTC are pushing new updates for two phones that are getting on in age. The myTouch 3G Slide and the G2 are both receiving minor updates, despite the fact that both have been around since 2010. True, that was only two short years ago, but two years in smartphone time may as well be an eternity.
Ice Cream Sandwich. We do have some decent news though and that is the T-Mobile HTC myTouch 4G and myTouch 4G Slide smartphones are getting an over the air update this week, and users should be getting it any time now. This doesn't update to the latest OS but does bring plenty of fixes and improvement so stay tuned for more details.
available for pre-order at T-Mobile. Wal-Mart has decided to one-up them though by offering a pre-order for the fancy new slider for half of T-Mobile's price (with a new contract of course).
hands-on and unboxing. The MT4G Slide is everything you loved about the original myTouch 4G but with a much better camera and a sweet slide-out QWERTY keyboard for those in need.
