MyTouch 3G Slide Announced By T-Mobile

MyTouch 3G Slide Announced By T-Mobile

Today T-Mobile announced the myTouch 3G Slide complete with a "Genius Button." Engadget writes that the phone features "a pretty heavily-customized skin based on Android 2.1. How custom are we talking, exactly? Well, it's not quite like anything we've seen on a production Android device before..."

According to the official press release, the phone will feature voice-recognition software designed by the people behind Dragon NaturallySpeaking and will come in white, red, and black. Specs include:

  • 3.4" HVGA screen
  • Android 2.1
  • 5 MP camera
  • 3G
  • Genius button
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • 15mm thick

Take a look at this excerpt from their press release for more information on the voice-recognition software:

Genius Button™: With the Genius Button, you press one button, talk, and it delivers. The Genius Button, powered by Dragon Dictation from Nuance Communications (Nasdaq: NUAN), is an easy-to-access button on the front of the new T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide allowing the use of voice commands to control the phone and it’s features including making calls, composing and sending texts and e-mails, searching the Web or your surroundings. It will even read text messages aloud, and lets you dictate responses naturally as if you were speaking directly to a person.

Pricing and release date (besides June) are not yet announced, but AndroidandMe said "No price points were announced, but since T-Mobile is targeting the mid-range we expect the Slide to launch around $99-149 with 2 year contract."
