When T-Mobile announced the myTouch 3G, it was almost immediately welcomed warmly into the Android family. With the exception of, perhaps, the name, the myTouch 3G saw a wide adoption, as people jumped on board the Android train. And now that it's been out for some time, and it's seen a couple of "refreshes," T-Mobile and HTC have seen fit to add a new model to the family. So here we are with the myTouch 3G Slide, which adds a bigger screen, a bit more bulk, and a physical keyboard. But, with all those additions, does the Slide hit the nail right on the head, or is it not enough to be a warm new welcome to the family name? Find out below.
Talk about hotly anticipated. Even before the HTC EVO 4G was officially announced, talk of a WiMAX Android smartphone had been driving speed freaks wild with the promise of 4G connectivity and the flexibility of an open-source OS. The handset even managed to oust attention from the Nexus One at Google IO last week, when the search giant handed out hundreds of EVO 4G handsets to attending developers. The promise is straightforward: big screen, big camera and a big pipe; does the EVO 4G live up to its spec sheet?
You know there's a new gadget hitting the market when all sorts of sites, all over the Internet, start releasing reviews. And, sure enough, the HTC EVO 4G is no exception. The legendary Walter Mossberg has had his hands on the 3G/WiMax handset for about a week now, and his review reflects his tests with the device in two different cities. However, while he does a good job of outlining why people would want the phone, he seems to focus on one thing, and one thing only: the battery.
