One of our sources spent some time with the upcoming T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide, codenamed Doubleshot, and he was able to snap a few quick photos of the device to show the world. It runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and also features HTC’s latest Sense UI 3.0. We’ve been told the device runs “just as smoothly as the HTC Sensation” and is “much faster than the myTouch 4G.” An 8-megapixel camera is confirmed as is a shiny metal back cover, though our source indicates that the display isn’t 3D as had been rumored by other publications. In fact, the screen “isn’t anything to write home about,” but apparently the Android navigation buttons are softer than on the myTouch 4G and the slide-out QWERTY keyboard keys are “squishy” like the T-Mobile G2. T-Mobile is shooting for a launch during the first or second week in July, we’re told. One more shot after the break!
