T-Mobile’s latest QWERTY Android phone, the myTouch 3G Slide, is just a week or so from launch, but over at Android Community they already have a unit in hand and are sharing an unboxing and some first impressions. HTC-made, the myTouch 3G Slide has a 3.4-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen, Android 2.1 and a slide-out hardware keyboard, and comes in a rather dashing hard carry-case.

Bizarrely, T-Mobile have reskinned HTC’s own reskinning effort, with a customised version of the HTC Sense widgets we’re familiar with from HTC-branded handsets. A 600MHz processor keeps things running smoothly, and there’s a new “Genius” button which triggers voice-recognition functionality.
The T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide will arrive in stores on June 2nd 2010; it’ll be priced at $179.99 with a new, two-year agreement. More details – and hands-on photos – over at Android Community.
