[Updated] myTouch Slide Images In The Wild Part Two


UPDATE: We’ve confirmed that the T-Mobile myTouch Slide will in fact be running some verison of HTC’s Sense UI. This is the same UI we saw from the leaked Espresso ROM back in January, but it has the new Sense UI features like Leap (pinch zoom homescreen).

Update 2: Three more images of the red myTouch Slide were added to the gallery!

This morning we were greeted with a beautiful red “in the wild” image of the MyTouch Slide, the first of its kind. This afternoon we’re giving the black MyTouch Slide some love with a bunch of pics showing off what can only be described as a “new” take on the os. I’m no expert on the various HTC operating systems that have graced Android devices up until now but this one seems to be unique. Hit the jump for more pics and decide. The good news however is that it seem to be running Android 2.1 thanks to another tipster who was able to confirm that piece of information just a little while ago.

Hit the jump for more images!

    Is that sense I see?
    I’ll have to check this phone out

  • rob

    Aw crap, it does have sense! I was really hoping for vanilla 2.1!

  • Shawn

    A little different version of Sense? Doesn’t look bad.

  • Laz

    I’ve been looking to dump Verizon for a few weeks now with all the bad experience I had with both Verizon and the R & D i did for them with my BB Tour. I’m on my fifth phone and jump ship and save some money! I’m a Blackberry fan but willing to give another OS a try. I’ve been looking at both the N1 and HD2. I am concern with both phones of all the negative and don’t want to hassle with another phone. This slider looks awesome and am willing to give it a shot. I only want to be able to use it as a modem as well as listen to Slacker and MLB games when at work…

    • CO_Yeti

      Can’t tether with Android phones without rooting them. If using your phone as a modem is a deal breaker you’re going to want to look at the HD2 or Bold.

      • ceasoner

        thats a lie there are apps that allow you to tether internet…

      • Ed

        Non root tethering:

        PDANet ($30)

      • Anonymous

        PDAnet is free, not 30 bucks. And the HD2 is like an insanely hot girl with no personality. Its a one room mansion. The N1 would definitely be the better choice of the two.

      • 30014

        PdaNet is $30 dollars. The lite version is free not the full version. I personally use easytether which costs. 10 dollars.

      • http://squarecat.com Scott B

        The full version of PDAnet is $30, which gets you access to secure sites. I have the paid version on my Mac and it’s perfect.

      • Chris

        You can use PDA Net or Easy Tether from the Android Market without root access. I personally use PDA Net and it works fine.

      • 30014

        There are 2 versions of easy tether. There is the lite version which is free and the full version which costs $10.

    • androidboi

      you can usb and bluetooth tether with pda net for android( junefabrics.com) its in the android market and you do not have to root your phone works with mac and pc.

    • androidboi

      you can usb and bluetooth tether with pda net for android( junefabrics.com) its in the android market and you do not have to root your phone works with mac and pc.

    • http://none Rezponde

      As much as you like the way this phone looks so far, I think you’re best staying with a BlackBerry Bold 9700 with T-Mobile. It is the perfect phone for tethering and listening to Slacker/Pandora. Just like AT&T and Verizon, T-Mobile had pulled the Tethering app for Android. With BlackBerry however, you can tether it as much as you want. Hope that helps!

  • jkspike3

    I’ll take 2

  • Kevin

    that’s the espresso ROM. Looks pretty nice.

    • http://www.dastardlyreport.com ryaninc

      Espresso! That’s what it is! I was racking my brain trying to remember. I knew it had something to do with coffee, but I just couldn’t think of it. :-)

  • http://www.dastardlyreport.com ryaninc

    This is that new, alternate version of Sense that has been floating around for a while. I can’t remember what it’s called, but it had a codename, but I don’t remember. Looks really nice, though. Now, I just pray the rumored specs are wrong and this might be a worthy contender in the market.

    • J-Hop2o6

      SenseUI FTW! but thats weird that they changed to the SenseUI since the mt3g was Vanilla Andriod..

      what do u mean “Alternate version of Sense” whats the difference from the “Regular SenseUI?”

  • Bobomo

    I’ll be interested in hearing about the screen size and resolution. 320×480 is a little disappointing to me, but if they only have a 3.3″ display, I can see why they had to do that. Even with a keyboard, touchscreen real estate is important. When we get a more recent leak of specs, I’ll consider it. Until then I’ll save my dirty pennies for an N1 or (please oh please oh please) Desire.

    • arcangel

      Agree Desire is number 1 on my wishlist. Magenta UK got it but no joy for us Yanks.

  • elithegreat

    defenately wasn’t expecting this.
    What happened to the hardware? what happened to all the new SuperPhone and high-end HTC phones that have been leaked all over the place, and how come this one doesn’t have any of it’s new and modern designs??

    just another plastic, toyish, and childish looking phone to grace T-Mobile’s Portfolio.

  • HD2/Nexus One user

    If the screen isn’t 4.3in, then its a waste!

  • http://www.totallychristianshow.com Aaron

    This is a better look for this phone the red was ugly. Also I would like to see a side profile to see how think it was.

  • B

    Software looks nice. Might have considered this if I didnt have a Nexus

  • Bryan

    dang now wut do i do lol

    mytouch slide or htc hd2?? this is ganna be tough for me to choose

    • Rome

      Don’t get the hd2. I bought it and took it back in a few days. It’s pretty, but winmo definitely shows its ugly head after a couple days!

      • CO_Yeti

        Funny a lot of people say that about Android after a week as well…

      • ItsMichaelNotMike

        Don’t listen to Rome. I read a few of his comments, but stopped in a few days. His comments look right, but the lack of substance definitely shows its ugly head after a couple days! :)

        The HD2 is a great phone.

      • Bryan

        ok im confused about something.. can someone help me out by explaining this ..

        i been reading comments of people saying they are disappointed on the screen resolution which makes it seem like the screen will be small like 3.2 or sumthing..

        is this true? im not a genius when it comes 2 this stuff lol

        from the pics.. the screen looks pretty big

      • 30014

        @itsmichaelnotmike….its funny how u trash android fanboys commenting on articles about winnmo. Yet hear u are a winmo fanboy commenting in a android article. Talk about irony.

      • laphoneuser

        +1. Unless you are a Windows Mobile user (and fan), I would pass on the HD2.

        I had mine for over a week, and returned it. Missed the Android too much.

    • Anonymous

      shouldn’t be tough. the HD2 is a freaking waste of money. don’t even bother, unless you like living in a one room mansion.

    • johnny

      yea dont waste your money on the HD2,even tho its a beautiful phone. i bought one on release day and returned it 2 days later. definately went back to android! my cousin is selling his hd2 also.

  • Omeer

    AWesomeness..I have the N1 but I’ll still be picking this up..just waiting for the specs now :)

  • umaluver

    wow. that comes out a lot nicer than I imagined it. Looking forward to seeing the specs on it.

    I have the feeling the specs will be on the lower end of Android phones unfortunately. I would really like to see a high end Android phone sporting a keyboard like this. With out actually touching it, it certainly LOOKS very well done.

    Incredible + mytouchslide would probably be the most orgasmic phone to date.

  • Pororo

    This looks good. If this sucker is easily hacked, it’s a great phone. Cyanogen’s ROMs are one of the best. Love it on MT3G.

  • Random Select

    Phone looks good and definitely is a good replacement for all G1 owners. Now where are the technical specifications?

  • jesus


    • cb

      yes it does look like the samsung moment. i want all touch screen. i want the htc desire!

  • Galen20K

    Nice ROM! that UI is Slick !

  • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com Dave

    YESSS!!!!!!!!!! If I could have this in blue my dreams will have came completely true. Still gonna get it though.

  • Hawarr

    What are the rumored specs for processor, RAM and ROM?

  • http://tmonews Ferdinand

    what’s that yellowish button on the front

  • Solid_Fox

    I wonder if this will mean their will be a Sense UI update for the original MyTouch 3G since the hardware is so similar?

  • mpv

    That chrome earpiece is beyond hideous…

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      I too commented on that a few days ago.

      I will take a black Sharpie marker to it, like I do on anything that I don’t like.

  • Timothy

    what is that ‘g’ button? is that the search button ‘google’?

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      I believe that’s correct. Every OS is getting their mandatory one-touch search buttons. MS = Bing; Android = Google; etc.

  • http://i-appreciate.org alt-mobile

    Blech, I think the design of the phone is kind of ugly…

    • lol

      from a diff standpoint i think its pretty. I think the cliq is uglier lol

      • BoomBoomBang

        The design actually reminds me of the Samsung Rant and the Samsung Moment. If you stare at it long enough you’ll see them both a little haha.

      • http://i-appreciate.org alt-mobile

        The phone looks kind of “cheap” to me. It doesn’t have a nice finish like th TP2, the HD2, or even the cliq (I’ve played with the cliq and it isn’t half bad).

        Also, I’m not really a big fan of a 3 row keyboard. Kind of wish they had a row dedicated just for numbers.

  • jmts80

    I like it in black. If the specs are not too bad I will have to pick this phone up. BTW Good job Tmonews you guys do a great job!

  • http://tmonews.com Cheech

    Looks really cool and glad to see sensce and 2.1 but you all know the competition and crying would be over with if the HD2 was android 2.1, Bottom Line! Theres your super phone of The desire? I have the HD2 and it is kick ass, but would be level the the comp if had 2.1.

  • Laz

    It’s funny that this story just hit BoyGeniusReport and they are flaming the phone. Would you expect anything different?

  • mike

    this phone looks better than i thought

  • BoomBoomBang

    Hopefully that have this phone in the following colors:
    Red [ clearly ]
    Black [ obviously ]
    Some type of pearly white.
    and BLUE.!!! Like a dark navy blue…

    • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com Dave

      Yess BLUE!! Dark Navy would be nice or any blue :D

  • Ermac

    Looks pretty cool, motorola need to step they tmo game up, everybody else has cool moto phones xcept tmo……but they are good on capitalizing on mistakes and bloopers (cliq). Maybe we might see a cliqII. Who knows???

  • http://tmonews.com Cheech

    Thats Rediculous, the cliq xt is a great device that ranks the highest of all moto phones other than the droid. read the reviews and try one for yourself, its a nice phone! I have hd2, but if i didn’t I would use cliq xt (or n1, but not offered throught t-mo yet).

  • http://tmonews.com Cheech

    p.s. phone scoop rated the xt best of 3 (back flip, devour, and cliq xt)

    • Timothy

      i have to admit, i did not have the slightest bit of interest when i first heard of and saw the Cliq xt. Then i played around with it and actually it’s definitely the best phone next to the mytouch 3.5mm and HD2 on t-mobile. It even has pinch-to-zoom and flash[lite].

      much much better phone than i thought it would be.

      • Timothy

        only problem i had was the small screen. the original cliq could get away with it because it had a keyboard..

      • Cb

        I agree the screen on the cliq xt is too small for me to text on.

  • AndroidRRR

    Looks better than i first thought. This may be my G1 replacement if internal memory is decent and the processor isn’t a 528mhz. Since its supposed to be another 100% you device i’m sure there will be many color variations to slap on it.

  • muziclovr28

    so glad to see that its running on sense. bout time tmobile gets something to compete with all the other android devices coming out soon.

  • andrew

    i told vere body that the mytouch slide is going to get to sence if only the mytouch 3g would be able to get htc sence

  • BoomBoomBang

    Based on the 1st pic, the MySlide would look rather damn cool in Silver =/

  • Ms. Matrix

    It looks like it’s going to be a nice phone when it comes out. If i didn’t have the Cliq xt already I would definitely pick this. The shape reminds me of the N1, I don’t know if I would like the keyboard, but it’s not a major con. The screen looks nice too. I don’t know about the red one, it looks funny…

    My husband still has the original mytouch, I’m going to try and work my “you need a new phone magic” on him and see if he will get it. But he’s a tough one to crack, he’s not into phones like that.

  • atul0002

    Does anyone know if its gonna have a snapdragon in it or not?

  • Davidohio

    FINALLY another android phone with 2.1. This phone has some good specs.

  • Ktwist


    From what I’ve heard, this phone has an ARM 11 processor. Now which one, that is up in the air. No snapdragon but it’s rumored to have the 600mhz which could possible be bumped up to 1ghz, but not likely. Let’s just hope it’s not the older ARM 11’s rated at 528mhz!

  • JaylanPHNX

    I like the look, but I’ve got a hundred dollars that says the specs suck. If it had a snapdragon in it, it’d be a huge coup for TMo. Hell, if it could just hit 700mhz it’d still be faster than anything on the big T (except N1 which I’m not really counting). Price is also gonna be a big factor.

  • Jshin

    Looks like a great phone! (if you have breasts and ovaries)! I bet most of the people commenting badly on the HD2 have never used one. The HD2 is a bad ass device and will turn heads. Truthfully the stock ROM on the phone leaves ablot to be desired, which is why you go flash a custom ROM, this is for me one of my favorite things about WM, the ability to easily mod your device and make it look anyway you want. I pre-ordered the G1 and thought it was ok but it didn’t satisfy my thirst for hacking a device.

  • Allen pain

    It looks good but im going to wait to see what LG is bringing to tmo

  • xristo

    Will we see a leaked photo of the white version anytime soon? Just curious to see if it has the same color of keyboard as the others…

    • BoomBoomBang

      There’s a white version also??

  • NiiDiddy

    i don’t get it…not my cup o’ tea!

  • JBLmobileG1

    I think this phone may be a winner so long as it has enough memory and power. One thing that kind of upsets me though is the fact that I have the $24.99 Android plan (with the bonus 400 messages). When I called Tmobile about a month ago about possibly upgrading they told me I was grandfathered into the $24.99 Android plan (which is now $30)if I was interested in the Cliq or Cliq XT… HOWEVER… this plan didn’t qualify for the MyTouchs, which means I would have to upgrade to the $30 plan. The rep pretty much told me they are different which is total BS. I know someone who has the same plan as me and he only pays $24.99 using the older MyTouch. Besides the G1 (which I currently own) isn’t much different from the MyTouch… in fact they have the SAME O/S. I think he was trying to rip me off so they could make an extra $5.00 a month from me… actually make that $10 because I would need messaging. All I can say is if they want to keep me a customer I should have the right to keep my current data plan no matter what Android device I upgrade to… and at the same price too. If this really is the case then I can only imagine Tmobile will raise the data price again when HSPA+ (or whatever its called) is in the phones come sometime this year.

  • insider

    sadly i can assure you all it has a 528 in it

  • D

    There are dozens of phones to be launched on T-Mobile this year. Why does everyone feel they need to post their disgust everytime a handset of their liking gets leaked for availability?

    (Insert your comment here about T-Mobile going bankrupt and how you’re leaving for Verizon because you don’t like this phone)

    You can’t launch a high end phone everytime. You have to leave room for more affordable options for those not looking for something on the caliber of the N1. T-Mobile caters to the young and budget conscious crowd so you have to expect mid range phones to be launched sometimes.

    There will be more phones many of which will be Android and that are high end to compete with the EVO. They will be out this year and will be HSPA + capable. Show some Magenta support and a bit of slack for catering to the majority of their subscribers. Better options ARE on the horizon. T-Mobile has a few tricks up its sleeves.

    • JBLmobileG1

      Sadly D… you may be right but then again… if the price is around the Fender MyTouch pricing then the price will be too much for too little. Tmobile was going to let me get a full discount on a Fender MyTouch at $199 (its only $179 for new customers). By the time I added tax and shipping it came to about $250. Now I can get an HD2 for the same price only its hardware is way way way better and more powerful. For me though as much as I wouldn’t mind it I am still going to stick with Android a little longer. Case in point… while I agree Tmobile wants to create phones that everyone could afford its pretty sad when they release a phone and overprice it or price it the same as something else that’s a lot better. Now who’s to say this new phone won’t be released at a good price. But, if it has the same specs as a phone from two years ago then they better not charge and arm and a leg for it. So we know it does have Android 2.1 at least which is a great feature… but then if the memory and processor aren’t that much better then why not just root my G1 and get a hacked version of the o/s. If the processor in this phone isn’t much faster than any other current Android that Tmobile offers who’s to even say that this phone will be able to handle anything above 2.1 without slowing it down to a crawl? If Tmobile does want to keep the phone in tune with customers by being budget friendly then I wouldn’t expect more than $150 if the specs going around are true. Maybe drop the newest MyTouch to $99 and the old model (if there are any left) to $79.

    • Jordan

      Thank you sir. This helps a slowly becoming hopeless fan. I hope this is the case as I have been with T-mo for 6 years now and want to continue to show loyalty. Thanks.
