Although not the best-kept secret over at T-Mobile, the latest entry in their myTouch series is still very impressive. Specs-wise, it is able to easily compete with the recently-released Sensation, but still has a few interesting software tricks up its sleeves:

  • 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
  • 3.7" SLCD 800 x 480 display
  • Android 2.3
  • Sense 3.0
  • 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash
  • 1080p video capture
  • Full QWERTY keyboard
  • HSPA+ connectivity

While the 8 megapixel camera isn't unheard of among high-end smartphones, T-Mobile wants you to know that the 4G Slide is still easily capable of replacing your camera because the software features included.

    • Improved low-light Performance: with a backside illuminated sensor and a wide aperture lens (f/2.2)
    • Zero shutter lag: innovative software features allow for an instantaneous shot at that precise moment
    • SweepShot: for capturing panoramic shots by sweeping across an entire scene in a single motion
    • ClearShot HDR: for capturing objects in bright settings so your photos are not affected by high-contrast lighting
    • BurstShot: for capturing multiple photos in a quick burst so you don’t miss the perfect photo

The myTouch 4G Slide will be available for $199.99 this July, while a previous leak of T-Mobile's timeline seems to pin down the release for July 6. Any keyboard lovers passing up the Sensation for this?
