As ugly today as it was the first time we saw it, the T-Mobile myTouch Slide has once again been spotted in the wild. Now sporting a blinding fascia and a curiously stylized Google search button, the myTouch Slide is the very device some of our T-Mobile connects reported will replace the ageing and increasingly unpopular Sidekick line-up as far as T-Mobile is concerned. We’ll find out if this is the case soon enough, because this device is currently on track to be released on the 19th of May. Just as a little bonus, there’s even a pic of another myTouch Slide that’s running Android 2.1. Once more, the specs:

  • 1300mAh battery
  • MicroSD memory cardslot is accessible without battery removal.  It is a push to insert and push to remove design.
  • Optical trackpad.
  • Camera with LED flash.
  • 3.5 mm Headset Jack
  • Slide-out 4 row QWERTY keyboard
  • 320×480 screen resolution.
  • ARM11 processor.

Not exactly what one tends to picture when thinking of a “new and improved” handset, but our guess is enough people will bite.
