(Updated) HTC DoubleShot Confirmed As Qwerty Slider?

Update: Nick from HTCSource just made an interesting observation whereas the original myTouch Slide has a 600MHz processor and the “Double”Shot is alleged to have a 1.2 GHz processor. That would be “double.” Coincidence?

For those of you who like to follow device releases by codename, the DoubleShot may be next great QWERTY slider for T-Mobile. When we first broke the news of the DoubleShot codename we were admittedly in the dark as to what kind of a device it might be. Well thanks to the user agent profile uncovered by the folks at Pocketnow we can confidently say its an Android QWERTY slider. Our first guess and we emphasize guess is that this may be the long rumored myTouch 4G sliding keyboard edition.

Along with the discovery of the QWERTY keyboard the user agent profile tells us the DoubleShot will come with a 1.2 GHz processor, 800×480 screen and a 6+ megapixel camera with HDR capabilities.

Our best rumors indicate the DoubleShot will come in two colors and hit sometime in early July.

      How come T-mobile decides to pick up its game after it’s been acquired by AT&T?

      • Anonymous

        Its not be acquired yet its only possibility.T-Mobile picked up its game when sidekicks died out and android took charge.

      Sounds like you need a German chick with one of those new keyboard attachments. The url link escapes me at the moment.

    im glad tmobile is coming out with some good phones

  • Matlock

    This seems like it will probably the MyTouch 4g Slide! The name Double Shot would seem to refer to coffee, and not alcohol here, kind of like the MT 4G’s interface being called Sense Espresso, seems to line up to me, anyone else think so. And I have heard rumors of a new Mytouch device with a keyboard set to launch sometime this summer, so this could very well be it.

      Glad you put some Sense to this very hard to figure out puzzle!

        I see what you did there… well played.

    • Neejay

      I was thinking the same thing:

      “espresso” -> “doubleshot” (600mhz -> 1.2Ghz)

    Yeahhh I want the canybar mytouch after the slide

      HTC Doubleshot not Samsung! Learn to read! Oh yeah, those women who tell you they like you and think you’re smart and funny and cute, they only say that because they’re prostitutes and you’re paying them.

    Yes, finally! I’m obsessed with QWERTY devices so if this comes through (and has a battery life longer than 5 hours like my MTS) then I’m game for it.

    Is it possible the “qwerty” keyboard could be on-screen ?

    • Anonymous

      no

      • Anonymous

        How can you tell, or how do you know?

        • Anonymous

          Because the user agent profile is identical to past qwerty slider profiles.

          Why would HTC sabotage their own Sensation sales with another touchscreen phone on T-Mobile within weeks of Sensation launch?

        • Anonymous

          Ok, well verizon and Motorola do it all the time. I was just being curious. Plus neither has a set release date, and there was speculation that it maybe a 3D device.

          might be the lg 3d phone i remember it went threw Fcc a while back

      Qwerty always refers to a physical keyboard.

      • Anonymous

        Yea sounding more and more like a myTouch slide successor. The double shot of espresso 600mhz=1.2ghz the coffee lingo but what really gave it away was the article David just posted about it coming in multiple colors…sounds like a slide successor to me.

  • Anonymous

    Nice, this is the first dual core qwerty slider. T-Mobile on a roll.

  • rudy

    Why not use the same screen resolution as the sensation?

    800×480 seems weak compared to 960×540

    • Anonymous

      I don’t believe the mytouch audience would know the difference either way, and of course it isn’t meant to be a powerhouse in the same sense anyway. I’m just very thankful the Sensation doesn’t fall under that product line.

    after the horrible news of “at&t acquiring t-mobile”,T-Mobile keep coming with best of the bests devices out of all carriers.whats going on?its not something bad its just weird.

    • Mario

      maybe theyre trying to keep customers and maybe add some new ones

  • Youngt82

    Mytouch 4G Slide all the way! Lol Makes too much sense, especially because of the codenamed: Doubleshot is similiar to Espresso…to coffee type names and the mytouch 3G slide was released last summer and I’ve had it since then but recently rooted mine cm7.0.2 with latest gingerbread 2.3.3:) but I will past for once a qwerty keyboard for physical keyboard and get that Htc Sensation 4G!

    double shot of espresso plz

    Hopefully its a 5 row qwerty.

    • Meagan

      I second that notion.

  • michael1997

    Wait, that 1.2GHz isn’t dualcore?

    • Anonymous

      When an earlier rumor referred to the “myTouch 4G slide” it said “1.2 GHz dual-core processor”:
      http://www.tmonews.com/2011/03/htc-pyramid-specs-hit-the-inbox-launching-in-june-with-android-2-4/
      (next-to-last paragraph)
      But this rumor doesn’t say dual-core… So — who knows? Time will tell.

      • michael1997

        I’m guessing its dual core because theres NO single-core snapdragons over 1GHz.
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapdragon_%28system_on_chip%29#Current_.26_Future_Specifications

        And I don’t think HTC would DOWNGRADE the processor from the MyTouch 4G to something lower than the 4G.

        • http://twitter.com/ilguider Ian Guider

          No Snapdragon over 1ghz? What do you think is in the HP Pre 3? A 1.4ghz single-core Snapdragon. Just look @ the snapdragon site, the msm8x55 is up to 1.4ghz.. And how would the same chip in the myTouch 4g be a downgrade? And btw, all 45nm snapdragons have an integrated 14.4mbps HSPA+ chip(not lower than 4g)

        • Anonymous

          Yea he may be right, the flyer also has a 1.5 ghz single core processor.

    hopefully it has sense 3.0 toned down espresso(i mean just the apps as toned down)

  • http://hand-gadget.com/ Alex Nguyen

    Although the rumored specs don’t seem up to par with many upcoming devices, the fact that it has a physical QWERTY might just win over a few people. It’s not like 1.2 GHz single core is any slouch. It will be able to perform just fine for many of us.

    Even though I was thinking about switching to the Sensation after having a wonderful year with my Slide, I might consider this new DoubleShot if it doesn’t run the same watered-down version of Sense that my Slide does. Espresso UI is good, but there’s too much T-Mobile branded crap on it.

    • Big Bad Butcher

      I believe that the name “DoubleShot” sounds like espresso theme.
      I hope it comes with sense 3.0 cause of the 1.2 Ghz proc, lets hope its dual caor.

  • Anonymous

    If this is in fact the MyTouch with a sliding query keyboard, I hope they don’t put that metal battery door. That was really stupid on their part as it heats up and get pretty warm when used extensively. I also hope they put an HDMI out, and DLAN/WIDI.

    • Anonymous

      lol, yeah, sometimes the metal door gets hot but it doesn’t really effect anything? If you are getting surface burns on your body something else is wrong. Guess you are one of those complainers for the sake of complaining type people.

    I just want a QWERTY android with a good CPU and a decent screen, this may be my “Tilt 3″ potentially without tilting feature.
