T-Mobile USA has given the official nod to the myTouch 4G Slide, the carrier's latest QWERTY smartphone. Built by HTC, the myTouch 4G Slide packs a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen and the same 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor as inside the HTC Sensation and HTC EVO 3D, as well as that physical keyboard and an upgraded camera.

The 8-megapixel camera - which has autofocus and a dual-LED flash - also gets a new f/2.2 wide aperture lens and a backlit sensor, both intended to improve low-light performance. HTC has also fettled its software, promising zero shutter lag as well as adding in-camera HDR support, SweepShot for easy panoramic photography, and BurstShot for firing off multiple frames in short order, and then allowing you to pick the best later on.

A front facing camera gives support for video calls, meanwhile, and the phone runs Android Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0. Other specs haven't been announced, but we're guessing WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS and all the usual sensors will be included when the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide arrives in July 2011. It'll be priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement, and available in black or khaki.

    Once
    the MyTouch 4G Slide arrives, I am definitely going to get one. A lot of phones
    these days come with 4G, but not many come with a super fast camera and a
    dual-core processor! I love watching movies and shows, and this phone should
    have no problem streaming those for me! The DISH Remote Access app lets me do
    that on my phone. I am sure it will work wonders on the MyTouch 4G Slide! As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have
    been using a 922 SlingLoaded receiver to stream live TV and recorded shows to
    my phone for a long time and I love it. Anywhere I am I can watch TV as if I
    was sitting at home! I encourage anyone and everyone to take a look at
    http://www.besttvforme.com to get all the information on starting an account to see
    your TV Everywhere! Hopefully it gets her soon, I want it now!
