T-Mobile has announced a new addition to their line of smartphones, with the introduction of the myTouch 3G Slide. Although we’ve seen it unofficially before now, the press release confirms some interesting software additions to the device, amongst other details.
Running Android 2.1, the myTouch 3G Slide consists of a 3.4-inch HVGA touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for text input. You’ll find a 5 megapixel camera with a flash, so that you can take pictures on the move, and an 8GB microSD card as standard to house all your media and apps.
T-Mobile seems to be rather keen on marketing the device to families, stating how the "myTouch 3G Slide is designed to help families stay connected to their favorite people throughout their busy days", and citing a June release:
