T-Mobile’s Next Big Android Phone Gets Caught On Camera

This isn’t the first time that T-Mobile’s upcoming myTouch 4G Slide has been caught in the wild but these photos are certainly clearer and prettier than the last leak and will give you a great look at what will likely be the Magenta carrier’s next big release.

The pictures don’t reveal too much but do give us a good look at the G2-like keyboard, some HTC Sense running over what is likely Android Gingerbread, and the curved HTC-made form factor. All in all, it looks like T-Mobile has something pretty good up its sleeve and now all we need is a release date.

This touchscreen handset comes with a QWERTY keyboard and access to Android Market, some sort of App Store, but without Apple’s limitations. G1 supports T-Mobile’s 3G (HSDPA) network plus Wi-Fi and it features a rich HTML email client and email synchronisation. There’s also a G2 version planned for the remote future, while some say we’ll see the Android OS on HTC Touch HD.

Speaking of that, the myTouch 4G Slide aka HTC Doubleshot recently passed through the FCC, so it a release should be sooner rather than later and from the looks of things, we have a feeling people probably want this thing to come out tomorrow.

As for specifications, the myTouch 4G Slide is said to include a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm with an Adreno 220 CPU, 768MB of RAM, a VGA front facing camera, an 8MP rear facing camera, possible support for 1080p 3D video, and a 3.7 inch WVGA LCD display.


Keep an eye out for an official announcement in the coming days.
