It was hardly a surprise when T-Mobile announced the HTC-built myTouch 4G Slide late last month, as a series of leaks left little to the imagination. Noticeably absent from T-Mobile’s official announcement, however, were launch details. T-Mobile on Monday rectified the situation when it revealed that the latest addition to the myTouch series will launch on July 27th for $199.99 on contract. The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide is no slouch when it comes to specs — the smartphone features a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, a 3.7-inch WVGA display, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording, and a full QWERTY keyboard along with support for SWYPE. The myTouch 4G Slide also features HTC’s latest Sense 3.0 UI overlay and service suite on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is far and away our favorite Android overlay to date.
