The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide smartphone launches later this month and pairs the latest version of Google Android with an advanced camera. An early review unit just arrived, so I’m sharing some first impressions and general information on this video look of the upcoming handset. Like many higher end smartphones these days, the myTouch 4G Slide is powered by a dual-core processor; in this case a 1.2 GHz chip from Qualcomm. Netflix is pre-installed and the handset supports 1080p video playback. The four-row keyboard is extremely responsive but does make for a slightly thick and heavy handset.

I focused mainly on the camera and supporting software in this video as prior phones from HTC have been relatively lackluster in this area by comparison to smartphones from other manufacturers. It’s too early to say if HTC succeeded, but all the right parts are there, an 8 megapixel sensor with dual-LED flash and support for 1080p video capture. New photo modes are available as well, demonstrated to a small extent in my video. The ClearShot HDR mode looks promising as does SweepShot for panoramas, and BurstShot, which captures multiple images in quick succession.

The phone uses a tweaked version of HTC’s new Sense 3.0 interface, making it simple to navigate, so I’m looking forward to spending more time using the handset and testing out the HSPA+ mobile broadband capability on T-Mobile’s network.

  1. I’ve always liked HTC’s sliding keyboards, and still one of the reasons I’m rocking my Touch Pro 2. The 4G and camera tweaks I can work around.
