With roughly a month to go before its expected launch, the myTouch 3G Slide rumors and leaks have kicked into high gear.
A fresh batch of details found its way online over the weekend thanks to a source at Android and Me. Apparently T-Mobile and HTC recently gave out several hundred of these handsets to T-Mobile employees for testing and feedback. This source was among one of those lucky folks and was only too happy to provide details about the phone.
Reported specifications include a 600MHz processor, 512MB ROM, 512MB RAM, and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash. If these hold true, this would put the phone right in line with the Motorola Droid. Rounding out the phone are more common features like a proximity sensor, a light sensor, and an optical trackpad.
As for software, the device is said to come preloaded with T-Mobile's AppPack and My Account as well as a new myTouch Music, which according to AndroidAndMe, is a streaming music app that operates similar to Pandora.
The default keyboard is said to be Swype, although users can opt to change that to the standard HTC version or a new Dragon Dictionary application. Multitouch support was found to work in the browser, gallery, and Google Maps. Finally, it was confirmed that the phone runs Android 2.1 and has the latest build of HTC's Sense UI under the hood.
