While you will not be able to get your hands onto the myTouch slide until June 2nd, those fine folks at Walmart are you giving you the chance to pre-order. We should mention we didn’t actually go through the sales process but we’re hoping this “pre-order” will ship in time for a June 2nd arrival. Otherwise, well the pre-order becomes a silly idea. It’s unusual T-Mobile itself hasn’t done a pre-order for this device considering their high-profile myTouch launched back in August of last year with a pre-order. On the other hand, the Walmart pricing is $20 more than the T-Mobile price of $179.99 after rebate. If you absolutely positively hate the idea of a rebate, perhaps Walmart is right up your alley.
Of course, if you do not want a pre-order, you can always stop by Best Buy and donate a kidney (maybe a liver) to purchase the myTouch Slide outright at $549.99. Let us hope the new customer/upgrade price is a significantly reduced number.
