(UPDATE) myTouch 4G Slide Available July 27th, Pre-order July 19th

 

Update: Now this might make things a little confusing.  It’s being reported that presale will begin on the 19th of July, with sources pointing to a non-existent press release.  Meanwhile, this little screen shot just hit our inbox showing that the presale (for web/telesales and care upgrades) begins the 20th.  Believe what you want, but I’m going with an official launch on the 27th.

Update: Back to the 19th for the presale.  T-Mobile officially made it official, Facebook official in fact.


While the unboxing video was a great way to tease us, I’m sure some confirmation will make our mouths water.  We have been saying that the myTouch 4G Slide will be available on July 27th, so we can’t say we are terribly surprised about it’s official launch date.  As PhoneScoop reports, however, the pre-order will start July 19th, which isn’t much longer than a week away.  As expected, the myTouch 4G Slide will cost you $199.99 with a new agreement and maybe after some rebates.

    A Perfect G2 Replacement phone.  I want!!!

    • Anonymous

      I agree, this will replace my G2.

      Side note, Backstab on the G2 is fantastic….

        HOW CAN YOU PEOPLE REPLACE YOUR G2′S ALREADY. I’ve had my myTouch 3G for almost three years, and its still holding up strong. I don’t think its that important to be upgrading your phone every three months.. Be a bit more economical. The G2 still has great hardware, and should last you at least another year. Greed is a terrible thing you know.

          A terrible thing is when you assume that people are greedy or that we are replacing our phones every 6 months or that we are not being economical.

          Just because you mentioned those things:

          I bought the G2 at launch…that was 8 months ago.

          A phone can last as long as you take care of it.

          Hardware is only as great as the buyer thinks it is. People have different opinions.

          That is great that you kept your phone for almost 3 years. Great for you! I kept my N82 for over 2 years. Great for me!

          Lastly, one of my five lines is up for renewal and this is a great opportunity to update to a similar device at a great price and FINALLY give the G2 to my daughter as she has been asking for it ever since she saw it online.

          Now, where it’s that greed that you speak of? As I said before, it is a terrible thing to assume, especially assuming that you know a persons reason for doing something.

          The MyTouch3G is not worth the hold for 3 years. Nobody needs to be economical, being economical is one of the reasons why America isn’t the top auto manufacturer anymore. Its not greed to buy another device though you are on a 2 year contract. People want what they pay for and when buy some cheapo phone for free on contract and wonder why the quality isn’t so good on calls etc its your own fault.

          Not being economical is why most Americans (unlike most rich countries) have zero net worth and will never be able to retire.  Not being economical shows a belief that, “the future will never come, so why save for it?”

      If you need to borrow money for a cell phone….maybe you should just start a savings account instead….for a rainy day or something.  You and the glutton above that wants phones for his “stable” are what’s wrong with this country!

          Nah….I just travel overseas frequently and see people that really suffer in poverty.  This country needs serious economic reform.  We are living off the luxuries our grandparents built within this great country.  People that have to borrow $ for a cell phone?  Come on….  We are fortunate enough to live in a country where even the poor have at least 1 car and two flat-screen tv’s.  Of course, then these people with flat screens and cars are still accepting handouts from the government in the form of unemployment pay, food stamps, etc.  Take care of yourselves…save your money!  Just sayin’

      HTC makes probably the best handsets on the planet.  Nothing wrong with wanting to fill your “stable” with its products.

        Honest question: What is the best about HTC handsets that makes them the best on the planet to you?

        • Anonymous

          Their build quality, the thought put into the phones and Sense UI, their company and how friendly they are to devs. The handsets have a much more premium feel to them over, say, Samsung’s phones or LG’s. And since they are only in the mobile market, they can put all of their focus on making the /best/ phones in the world. Satisfied?

          I didn’t ask for a satisfactory answer and my question was for Michael. Your reply was great until the last word, then it made the your reply appear to be arrogant with a negative connotation.

          Ummm htc just noww started unlocking bootloaders…. Samsung hasn’t locked any. Samsung has by far better hardware SuperAmoled version displays are by far better than qHD. More Internal space on samsung products. Touchwiz> sense. Though Sense 3.0 is debateable. Premium feel? bullcrap.

        It looks exactly like a mash up between the MyTouch 4G and The 3G slide like they just removed the 3GG slide’s keyboard and slapped it on the back of a mytouch 4G

    Only question is, if I should I pay full retail, or burn my fiancee’s upgrade.. Had it not been for all this buyout talk, I would have happily extended my contract.. at&t-mobile f.t.l.(for the loss)

      Posting this in the comments section of a MyTouch handset article is not really the place to look for an answer to your question.

      You might want to check out the TMoNews Forums, that’s a real helpful section.

      • Sharper77

        CRT24- thanks for the suggestion but it didn’t work. The volume is still unacceptable. I can’t hear it without putting the speaker to my ear. But the strange thing is that the speaker volume is fine when it comes to everything else like watching YouTube videos and listening to music. It’s weird. Let me know if you find out anything else.

        As for itsmichaelnotmike – don’t post stupid stuff like that. I’m obviously not gonna carry out this conversation throughout the whole topic. I already asked the question so don’t add in unless you have anything helpful to say to my question

      I have the sensation and was experiencing the same thing and was very disappointed by the speaker volume. I usually download tonepicker from the market mainly for applying my music files as ringtones but I just checked it and my speaker volume was really good. The settings within tonepicker have a setting for in call volume. When I first tried my speaker phone I don’t think I had this installed yet and dont think I had tried it since I downloaded until tonight. I appears to make a difference so download tone picker and then when you open the application, it will have several settings, turn the in call volume up and that should help. I would be interested to see if this helps so please post your results.

    Gotta say because it’s an HTC handset it will be pleasing all around.  Personally, I love HTC physical keyboards. The G1 has a great keyboard and so does the Touch Pro2. If I stay with T-Mobile I might look at one of these or wait until T-Mobile’s version of the SGS II comes out in August-Sept.

    The Sensation I have is turning out to be a really nice device, so guess I’ll be keeping it. Having both a Sensation and an SGS II, that seems a satisfying combo. Then again, I bought two tablets (Acer Iconia, ASUS Transformer) and between those and these superphones, that’s a lot of coin to tie up, at least until I sell em on eBay. ;)

    I’m definitely interested in getting this phone.  I just want to know (for sure) how much internal memory this phone will be packing, see a video review, and most importantly know how the battery life is on this bad boy because my MyTouch 3G Slide has HORRIBLY battery life.

    I definitely am ready to buy this phone outright (either eBay or somewhere else) to use for some 4G goodness (even though I barely get 3G here in East Lansing).

    Down with the merger!
