Latest T-Mobile smartphone is myTouch 3G Slide

T-Mobile myTouch 3G SlideIt’s been a while since T-Mobile made noise with their G1 mobile phone, one of the first device created also with the help of Google. In 2008, G1 was a test for Google to know if they are prepared for cellphones niche. Later, in 2010 Google released their own mobile phone called Nexus One, built with HTC help.

Even if T-Mobile doesn’t got the experience other have(Nokia), they are a mobile phone producer since 2006. After four year of developing phones on their own or with other help, in June they released another smart phone called myTouch 3G Slide.

From the beginning we can see that the TFT display has a normal size, 3.4 inches and supports a 480 x 320 pixel resolution with 262k colors. Under the display we have four buttons: Home, Menu, Back, G-button and an optical pad in the middle. Sliding the phone to the right side will make you discover the four row QWERTY keyboard which looks quite stylish.

A 5 megapixel camera device is situated on the back of the phone and has LED flash + autofocus. Also there, under a grill lies the loudspeaker while under the back cover is the 1300 mAh Lion battery.

With the help of Google and HTC, myTouch has accomplished one of the best mobile operating system: Android™ v2.1 (Éclair) with HTC Sense™. An ARM 11 600 Mhz processor and 512 Mb RAM should keep up with the OS and handle all apps from Android Market. Internal memory also has 512 Mb and a microSD card slot is supported, up to 16 Gb.

T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide QWERTYConnectivity has normal features for a smartphone and GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi®: IEEE 802.11 b/g, 3.5 mm stereo audio jack and microUSB. GPS is also available and Google Maps also comes installed as a featured app.

Wrap it up it appears that T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide is decent phone with optimal specs and has one of the best OS you’d ever seen now on a phone, Android 2.1 with HTC Sense UI. As we said the phone it’s available from June and has an estimated price of $179.99(on a contract).

    kindly prove me with the how to do the confegration manually or iof there any programe that i can downlould to my mobile in order to conect to the network

    • Hello there,
      I think you should go online and search more details or call them to find out how you can access Internet from this network provider. To access Internet through their network, they should provide you some settings tweaked for your phone. You’ll better find a Wi-Fi hotspot.
      Good luck!
