T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide enjoys US release, claims to be best cameraphone ever
T-Mobile USA has confirmed the leaks and rumours that it’s launching the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide, bringing a slide out keyboard to the HTC Sensation already available in the UK and the US.
Bragging that it’s the most “advanced camera of any smartphone” T-Mobile and HTC are hoping features like zero shutter lag, backside illuminated sensor and a bevy of camera settings to help you take better pictures will lure would be photographers who can’t be bothered to carry a dedicated camera with them.
The myTouch 4G Slide is expected to be available in July and comes with an 8-megapixel camera with a dual LED flash.
Those camera modes include SweepShot; a way of capturing panoramic shots by sweeping across an entire scene in a single motion, ClearShot HDR; that captures objects in bright settings so your photos are not affected by high-contrast lighting, and BurstShot for capturing multiple photos in a quick burst so you don’t miss the perfect photo.
Beyond the camera functionality of the myTouch 4G Slide, the phone will have a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 3.7-inch WVGA super LCD touch-screen display, a slide-out full-QWERTY keyboard, and strangely Swype for those that aren’t really fussed by the QWERTY keyboard (surely they will just get the Sensation?
It comes with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and HTC Sense 3.0.
