myTouch 4G Slide Appears In The Wild, No Mr. Blurrycam In Sight!

We at TmoNews want to wish all the Fathers out there a very happy Father’s day with some crystal clear myTouch 4G Slide in the wild shots. While Mr. Blurrycam has already found this device hanging around town the shots we just received show off the phone in significantly better clarity giving you a much clearer idea of what the phone will look like. Our ninja was definite on the phone running Gingerbread with an HTC Sense UI “much like the Sensation but with some specific myTouch features.” We were told the keyboard is amazing and the phone is surprisingly fast. There was the necessary comparison to the G2 keyboard and it was said to be the same in terms of feel. The only (possible) drawback we were told is that the phone weighs in a little bit more than the G2 or so it feels in the hand. That may or may not be a concern to some but the benefits of the myTouch 4G Slide far outweigh any extra weight.

So have a good look at the myTouch 4G Slide in some great pictures as we remember the “Doubleshot” codename and bid it farewell. Happy Father’s Day to all the Father’s and future Father’s out there!

    Nothing ugly about it I think its clean looking compared to some brick sliders… I think a 4.3 inch slider would be a weapon. Best phone on T-Mobile is this Sensation I waited forever for.

      Enjoy the bloated sense 3.0
      Samsung GSII smokes the sensation.
      I am a long time HTC user and will probably jump to the hercules when it comes out.
      Sad really because htc sense is beautiful but way too bloated.
      The same bloat has been noted on the evo 3d.
      Maybe htc will release a software fix hopefully.

    They made the G2 successor EVEN HEAVIER than the G2?  Why would you do that? D:

    • Anonymous

      MyTouch and G line are separate this is not the G2 successor.

      • MK Terra

        You know what I mean.  The G2 is being retired, and this is the closest thing T-Mobile / HTC will be offering as a successor for a while, as far as physical keyboards go.

  • Cmlsmile

    I just bought a MyTouch 4G. I am totally pissed. I hate not having a keyboard. I keep telling my son that I miss my G1 because of the keyboard. F ME!

       If you liked the G1 keyboard I doubt you would be happy with this one, I know the G2 keyboard is pretty bad compared to the G1 and this one looks almost identical to the G2.

      you… you still used a G1? I mean that gets a lot of dev support… but that’s the only thing it’s good for, and even so, still sucks spec-wise.

      Looks??  And the fact that the internals are completely different and way-superior (dual-core and each core running at faster clock speed) is irrelevant?

      • MLB

        well I tell you what… you can go buy 27 if that’s what you’d like to do… What you think has nothing to do with what I plan to do… I’ll pass.

          Of course, and you shouldn’t care what I think.  I’m just surprised when people use superficial appearance as the criterion for selecting a phone without regard to hardware/performance…not that there’s anything wrong with that. ;)
          BTW:  If I buy one it’ll just be the one, not 27.  If I was going to buy a couple dozen or so it would be 23 or 29 — a prime number.

        • renter

          Dude stop your BS.
          You would buy a phone you considered ugly because it has good specs?
          Who the hell are you to judge?

          People who feel that their posted opinions should not be contradicted would be better off not posting in a public forum. It would be better to just tell your friends how you feel, since your friends are more-willing to pretend they agree with you.
          To answer your questions:
          1) I might buy a phone even if I didn’t like the looks ’cause I don’t buy a phone to impress people.  YMMV.
          2) I can judge because anyone can judge on this forum.  Even you…as you did when you judged my “bs”.

        • Markmoaudio

          I noticed that they changed the keyboard layout some. My fav is that the @ sym is now located in the top left corner. This is a quick easy way to hit the @ key when entering email addresses!! Love it!! BTW the new My touch 4G slide is sexy!! If I was a Iphone I’d want to do the 4G but the 4G would turn me down cause it is way cooler. It is like that hot punk rock chick you can’t even touch. I heard that is the way they came up with the name! My Touch B!! Hands off! Oh yeah the specs are better too! It is like faster and stuff. But will the My Touch Slide save my life if I had to disarm a bomb in 20 seconds??? Who wants to test that out?

          PS…Iphones are just a status symbol.

      you are right. i own a my slide 3g

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

    Those are some clear shots haha. I think for those who care mainly for speed and a physical keyboard, this phone will be good. It’s just, can you get over the “unattractive” design and small screen size? Here are some preliminary thoughts on the myTouch 4G Slide: http://wp.me/p1BlyQ-3r

    looks like an amazing phone and fast processor. I can’t wait to get rid of my mytouch 4g and get the slide.

  • http://twitter.com/SugarMouth Mark Carruthers

    There is your answer to why they discontinued the G2 so quickly.

  • Rob H

    This sure looks like a G2 with updated internals and cosmetic changes. It has the same size screen, and button and trackpad layout. The keyboard is basically the same with minor differences. This explains why they got rid of the G2 so fast. I bet if you tried them out head to head in the store you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference. Most users don’t need/want all the bleeding edge hardware. The G2 would cut into Slide sales.

    I would love to see this in a dogfight against the G2X :)

    Whoa…this looks better than I expected. I am loving the Sensation but I miss the keyboard from my previous devices. I am very interested for my work device.

    • TweetMo

      Yeah, I miss my BB keyboard too. Can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m actually considering returning my new Sensation.

      • Anonymous

        Ok, returning it is probably a little much unless you really need the keyboard. I have grown to like typing on screen, with certain devices, though it still cannot match a real keyboard.

  • MT3GS

    As I was very much in love with my slide, two of my favorite devices this year were this one and the Sensation – I jumped at the Sensation and after seeing this I am glad I made my choice – Miss my physical keyboard, though, but the sensation makes it up to my slide in sooooo many ways!! I am not impressed with this, though… It’s still Espresso UI not full-blown Sense and too much T-Mo bloatware unlike the Sensation.

    • renter

      Ya that’s why almost every review notes all the lag the sensation has compared to similar specd GSII.

  • G2Xuser

    why don’t they ever make a 4+ inch screen AND a keyboard ? they always never USE all of the real estate on phones with keyboards. i love my g2x, but a 4inch screen with a keyboard would steal me away.

    Too many Genius buttons. I never find use for it, it’s too slow. Quite a few keys got moved around for 3G Slide users. It’s not good enough to replace my 3G Slide or 4G. 

    The recess in the last picture looks like a place I can tape emergency cash there. :)

      Ofcourse. The tape your money feature comes included in the revised 2.3 and sense os/ui

    Why the big myTough design on the front? Go with the small “my” circular logo and increase the screen size… (pounding desk, like fat kid in lunchroom) BIGGER DISPLAY!!

    • Ouroboross

      I compare the “mytouch” logo from screens captured here and *my* mytouch 4G: 4G Slide’s logo is spacing between the speaker grill is larger. I wish for larger screens too.

    Not another mytouch slide… currently using the mytouch 3G slide fpr the past year and let me tell you I HATE it. The keyboard is FANTASTIC, but the screen resolution is terrible. This keyboard is the EXACT same as the mt3gs just different button mapping. I’ve had this phone replaced 5 times now for a terrible dust issue where dust gets trapped under the screen. After a coulple months use the slide hinge wobbles a lot (on all 5 phones) and the phones software constantly bugs out day in and out. This phone is going to be just as BAD as the mt3gs just faster. I mean c’mon look how much room there is for extra screen space. Probably WAY thick too. Avoid this phone my friends!
