Though T-mobile had not yet announced any specific dates on when the myTouch 4G Slide will be released in the market, few of its features have been revealed.

Aside from the fact that the myTouch 4G Slide will be running in Android 2.3 and HTC Sense 3.0, the said gadget will also have new unique features that are not present in its predecessors — according to a source for TmoNews. It is “much like the Sensation but with some specific myTouch features.”

The four-row sliding keyboard is believed to be really good and the phone itself works fast. The myTouch 4G Slide is often compared to the keyboard of the outgoing G2, since they have similarities in terms of feel. The only difference is that the myTouch is heavier than the G2, thus making users feel it on their hands. Moreover, the new MyTouch 4G Slide is expected to have more fame than the G2 or the myTouch 3G Slide. A dual-core 1.2GHz processor will be present in this upcoming myTouch. It also has an 8-megapixel camera with auto-focus on the back.

There are buzzes around stating that this new Android phone will be launched by T-mobile in the first half of July, and will have the price of $200 on contract. The official release of myTouch 4G Slide might be announced very soon. So stay connected with All We Like to keep yourself updated on this latest Android phone from T-mobile.

Gingerbread on HTC Desire is a Go

Written on June 16, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Good work, HTC! You managed to solve the RAM puzzle, didn't you?

After announcing last Tuesday that HTC Desire is not qualified for an Android 2.3 update, the company suddenly changed their mind. It appears that they were able to solve the RAM puzzle eventually, and they will be rolling out the Gingerbread in the future.

As it turns out, the people’s voice matter, and the enormous pressure generated from last Tuesday’s statement made HTC to reconsider. At least, they were able to find a reason to keep the Desire on the market, rather than ditch the handset for dead. Well done, HTC!

Just keep it posted here at All We Like to check when will HTC Desire get its Android 2.3 update.
