T-Mobile’s myTouch 4G Slide, also known as the HTC Doubleshot, is now rumored for a July 27 release. Back when T-Mobile’s roadmap leaked, it was believed that the device would hit stores by July 6. FCC documents showed up on June 1 that further supported an imminent launch. But now a purported screenshot of an updated list of T-Mobile launch dates has surfaced and reveals that the myTouch 4G Slide may have to wait another three weeks.
Although no official announcements have been made on the device, leaks over the past few months have revealed that the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide has some pretty slick features for those desiring a device with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The handset is expected to have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual LED flash.
It should come running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense on top. Images have leaked of the device in the wild and those that had a chance to play with it say that the keyboard is “amazing” and the phone is “surprisingly fast.” It’s also said to be big heavier than the T-Mobile G2 while the keyboard has a similar feel.
