Last year, we saw T-Mobile release HTC’s Doubleshot as the myTouch 4G Slide, which followed 2010’s release of the QWERTY-less original myTouch 4G. Since they arrived, we’ve seen both models get their fair share of software updates, and most recently HTC has been adding them to its bootloader unlock program. Now T-Mobile has revealed that another maintenance update is on its way, and should be coming to both phones shortly.
Starting today, the new myTouch 4G software starts going out, bringing the phone up to system software 2.32.531.1. As is common for [...]
With plenty of new phones on their way to the major US carriers in the coming weeks and months, it should be no surprise that we’re seeing them take steps to help push sales of existing models while there’s still an interest in them. The latest to reveal its plans for a Valentine’s Day sale is T-Mobile, and it puts forth a compelling if not extremely time-limited offer.
This Saturday, February 11, for one day only, T-Mobile will be selling its entire stock of 4G smartphones for free-on-contract. Additionally, the same savings will be available for select [...]
Official releases of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich are slowly starting to arrive on smartphones and tablets — though not as quickly as many would like.
For those who are impatient (myself included), custom ROMs are the solution to get the latest OS on our phones. Today, the Samsung MyTouch 4G Slide gets an early taste of Ice Cream Sandwich!
Here’s what isn’t working just yet:– Camera– FM Radio– Accelerometer– Keyboard Light– USB Storage– Tethering– Notification LED
Most of the [...]
This past summer, HTC started making good on a promise to allow users of its smartphones to unlock the bootloader on their handsets, opening the door for some custom ROM modding. Things started off slowly, with just the Sensation available for unlocking to users in Europe. We’ve seen that list steadily grow since then, with HTC adding phones and expanding compatibility to models in other areas around the globe. Today it continues to expand that list, adding both a smartphone and a tablet to the mix.
We just learned last week that the HTC EVO View 4G on Sprint was getting a [...]
Probably the only good thing about seeing a holiday season come to an end, is when companies decide that whatever you didn’t buy, they might as well give it to you for free anyway. T-Mobile and Best Buy are now offering their myTouch 4G slide for the hard-to-say-no price of free, after your typical two year contract.
Now the tricky part here is that this appears in Best Buy’s “Deal of the day” promo, so we’re not sure if you’ll be able to get your hands on one tomorrow too. This specific myTouch 4G landed a decent 3.5 stars out of 5 in [...]
The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide was announced at the end of June and it was available on the carrier since July. It appears that Magenta is already preparing the phone for its end of life the Khaki version appeared on the “sell through”-list.
This “sell through” apparently means that no more orders are placed with the manufacturer even though stocks can drive sales for a couple of months more. It wouldn’t come as a surprise to see some great deals on the phone coming especially with the holiday season nearing upon us.
Security is becoming an issue more and more on phones running Google’s Android platform. The rule of thumb usually is that there is either a platform vulnerability which is usually fixed by Google or there are malware-infected apps in the Android Market which are eventually deleted by Google (both from the Market and off devices).
The recent vulnerability seems to be HTC’s fault; apparently there’s a huge security flaw which affects Android phones manufactured by the Taiwanese phone-maker (U.S. models only according to some reports). Models believed to be [...]
Today we have the latest update to T-Mobile’s myTouch line of Android smartphones. The HTC myTouch 4G Slide is naturally the upgrade to the older myTouch 3G Slide and there are a lot of new features that make it a worthy upgrade. The myTouch line has always had kind of a unique design aesthetic. It looks like it’s mainly targeted towards the lower-end market, but some of the high end features may suggest otherwise. Read on for our full review of the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide!
Here’s the unboxing for the HTC myTouch 4G Slide. The [...]
The MyTouch 4G Slide takes pictures at 8 megapixel resolution and includes a dual LED flash along with an f2.2 aperture. It’s billed as the most advanced camera on a phone and while it’s not the highest resolution, it certainly has some excellent features. Take a look at the videos and sample photos below and let us know if you think this is the best camera phone ever.
Here’s a look at a normal automatic photo as well as a high dynamic range photo taken by the MyTouch 4G Slide. In order to get an HDR image you’ll have to hold the camera [...]
This video goes over some of the interesting added customizations and software bundles that we’ll find in the MyTouch 4G Slide. It features a customized version of HTC Sense 3.0 which includes a different look and some lost functionality. For example, there are only 5 home screens that you can swipe between, and even though there is a zoomed-out view, you can’t edit the order in which the home screens appear or are arranged.
The MyTouch 4G comes with a few nice bundled apps. You get Adobe Reader, Bejeweled 2, the HTC Flashlight, a Friend Stream app that nicely [...]
The HTC MyTouch 4G Slide is the latest in the line of MyTouch devices on T-Mobile and it’s kind of an expected upgrade. In terms of hardware you’ve got a nice dual core 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon processor, a 3.7 inch WVGA Super LCD display with a 4 row slide out QWERTY keyboard, 768Mb RAM, an 8Gb MicroSD storage card preinstalled, and support for T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ 21Mb/s network. You’ve also got HTC’s Sense 3.0 on top of Android 2.3. The 8MP rear camera comes with AF, dual LED flash, ClearShot HDR, and 1080p video recording. I was a bit annoyed that by [...]
Here’s the unboxing for the HTC MyTouch 4G Slide. The device includes the usual USB/AC adapter and Micro USB cable but that’s all. The battery and 8Gb MicroSD card seem to be pre-installed, but no headphones or anything else was included. The box is very similar to most phones released on T-Mobile since the HTC HD2. This one has some cool shiny camera setting icons surrounding the phone’s cut-out spot on the inside as well as a bright green Android robot. Stay tuned for more about the hardware and software on this device as we’re quite interested in the [...]
The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide will hit carrier shelves on July 27 and the phone is already available for pre-order at Magenta going for $199.99 with a two-year contract or $499.99 for the phone only. Walmart also has the phone on pre-order and it appears to be half T-Mobile’s price.
If you can wait a couple of days after the July 27 release date you can grab the myTouch 4G Slide from Walmart and save $100. The price is $99.99 with a two-year contract and you’ll get a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.7-inch WVGA display, sliding keyboard, and a camera HTC is [...]
The T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide will be available in stores starting July 27 but if you just can’t wait another week to get your hands on the phone you can, as of now, pre-order online from Magenta itself.
The myTouch 4G Slide features a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon, 3.7-inch WVGA display, sliding keyboard, and allegedly the most advanced camera on a smartphone ever. Available in Khaki and Black, the phone can be pre-ordered online for $199.99 with a two-year contract or $499.99 for the phone only. Pre-ordering now will increase your chances to have the phone before your [...]
Last week, a leak placed the release date of the myTouch 4G Slide on T-Mobile as July 27. That fit with what we had previously heard about a July launch, but we lacked confirmation and were a little off-put to see the source still refer to the phone as the HTC Doubleshot. Go figure; it now looks like that information was spot-on, verified thanks to a T-Mobile press release announcing the smartphone’s availability.
Sure enough, retail sales of the myTouch will begin on July 27, when you’ll be able to pick up the MT4GS on-contract for just about $200. That will buy you [...]
T-Mobile announced the myTouch 4G Slide last week, a big upgrade over the existing hardware in the myTouch family of smartphones, with plans to launch the handset this month. The source apparently behind some of the launch dates we heard earlier today is still at it, continuing to come up with screenshots showing when some of this summer’s most anticipated smartphones are due to arrive. The latest to get the treatment is the MT4GS, but it’s not exactly good news.
The carrier had said we’d be able to get our hands on the MT4GS sometime in July, but it looks like [...]
Just as we suspected a tad earlier when T-Mobile teased the smartphone, Magenta has just announced the HTC-made myTouch 4G Slide, follow-up to the popular myTouch 4G from last year.
As the earlier video implied, T-Mobile is advertising the myTouch 4G Slide as having the “most advanced camera of any smartphone with zero shutter lag, backside illuminated sensor and additional premium digital camera features”. Sony Ericsson is constantly using a back illuminated sensor on its latest, Exmor R-enabled smartphones to dramatically reduce noise and increase noise [...]
T-Mobile is making a pretty bold claim about their latest Android-powered smartphone. According to a video released on their YouTube channel the upcoming myTouch 4G Slide features “the most advanced camera of any smartphone with zero shutter lag, backside illuminated sensor and additional premium digital camera features that offer consumers a viable replacement for their digital point-and-shoot cameras.”
Based on the video the phone will feature an 8-megapixel camera with built-in panoramic mode (SweepShot), BurstShot for better sports pictures, ClearShot HDR to make [...]
We expected T-Mobile to launch the myTouch 4G Slide any day now, way before we’ve seen the pictures showing the device in its full glory. Hopefully it’s just a couple of hours away now, at least in case we solved the puzzle correctly.
The image above is actually T-Mobile’s Facebook status which, as you can see, teases the myTouch 4G Slide. “Big news is on the way” says the status and we can’t wait to hear it, just bring it on already! Dubbed as HTC Doubleshot, we expect the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide to sport a dual-core CPU, 768MB of RAM, a [...]
The dual-core HTC Doubleshot, known appropriately as the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide, is expected to see a release any day now. The device has an updated keyboard that improves upon the design seen in the myTouch 3G Slide of last year, plus it adds HSPA+ capability on T-Mobile, a dual-core CPU (of the Qualcomm Snapdragon variety), and 768MB of RAM, while also bumping screen size from 3.4″ to 3.7″ and WVGA resolution. TMoNews has captures some photos of the myTouch 4G in the wild, showing off its svelte design, 8MP camera with dual LED flash, and Sense 3.0 interface with [...]
We’re expecting T-Mobile and HTC to launch the myTouch 4G Slide at an event tomorrow, but we have yet to get a good look at the device itself, save for some blurry partial shots. Well MT4GS still hasn’t been fully exposed, but the pair of dummy unit-filled cases above finally give us a pretty good idea of how the entire handset will look — minus the all-important keyboard, of course.
Codenamed Doubleshot, this dual-core companion to last year’s myTouch 4G (recently released in Canada as the HTC Panache) is expected to feature a 3.7-inch WVGA display, [...]
HTC’s myTouch 4G Slide (AKA Doubleshot) feels like it’s nearly upon us. We’re hoping the smartphone is among the HTC models that will be featured by T-Mobile at its launch event scheduled for June 8, and just yesterday we saw the publication of the phone’s FCC documentation. Now some close-up images of the Android are circulating, finally showing the handset’s QWERTY keyboard in all its blurrycam glory.
The problem with the MT4GS, or at least with spotting pics of it, is that it’s just so similar to the original myTouch 4G, that without seeing [...]
The upcoming T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide from HTC, expected to launch next Wednesday, June 8th alongside the Sensation 4G and another HTC device (Flyer?), has filed for FCC certification. Since we’re pretty confident of most of the specs already, there wasn’t much new information to be gleaned: the MT4GS, codename Doubleshot, is a dual-core QWERTY slider with 3.7-inch WVGA display, front and rear-facing cameras (VGA and eight-megapixel, respectively), and category 10 HSDPA support. The only real mystery at the point is whether or not T-Mo/HTC have decided to incorporate 3D [...]
