T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide details revealed The specs for the upcoming myTouch 3G Slide have been revealed this week by an employee who was given the phone to test, and it seems that G1 users finally have their successor.
The phone includes a 600 MHz ARM processor, Android 2.1 with HTC Sense and multi-touch support, 512MB of RAM, 512MB internal storage, a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, and a free 8GB MicroSD card.

The only feature missing from the 2.1 included with the new Slide is "live wallpapers," interactive backgrounds that can be found on high-end devices such as the Nexus One and HTC Incredible.

The smartphone will also come with Swype as the default keyboard, giving users the chance to use the record-breaking text input system that has been in closed beta for some time now.

Additionally, the game "Abduction" will come pre-installed, as well as a music streaming service that is similar to Pandora.

There is no word on price but the device is expected to hit stores in May.

It is not a matter of choice. I think mostly anyone would prefer the high Droid other the myTouch Slide. But T-Mobile users are tied down on a contract, so this is an upgrade.

I thought t-mobile didn't have contracts? I mean, that's their commercial anyway...$50 a month for unlimited everything and no contracts? The only problem with that is that "unlimited" is extremely limited by the T-Mobile network.

Dude you don't research anything do you? T-mobile has always offered contract plans/phones but they've added the option of no contract offers. Take the time and go to www.t-mobile.com, you're given the choice between contract and no contract. You just pay retail for phones at no contract which is going o be any carrier.
