T-Mobile myTouch 4G slide claims most advanced camera

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide

T-Mobile has announced the new myTouch 4G Slide, claiming that the HTC-built handset sports the most advanced camera available in any smartphone: an 8 megapixel resolution, zero shutter lag, excellent low-light performance, and easy panorama, HDR, and burst modes so users can quickly capture events and special moments. Plus, the myTouch 4G slide runs Android 2.3, features a slide-out QWERTY keypad, and a 1.2 GHz processor.

“Knowing that the best camera is the one you’ve got with you, we set out to create a new best-in-class smartphone that allows our customers to leave their cameras at home,” said T-Mobile USA senior VP of marketing Andrew Sherrard, in a statement. “Our newest myTouch device takes capturing and sharing memories to a new level by combining high-quality smartphone hardware with features that customers would expect from a top-of-the-line digital camera.”

The myTouch 4G Slide camera features a wide aperture lens (ƒ/2.2), a dual-LED flash, and zero shutter lag so users can be sure they’re capturing the exact moment when they snap a picture. The camera also features a SweepShot panorama mode for capturing a panorama in a single motion, ClearShot HDR for high-contrast lighting shots, and a burst mode for capturing action. The camera can also shoot 1080p high-definition video and record audio at the same time: users can also edit videos directly on the phone.

As a handset the myTouch 4G slide features a 3.7-inch touchscreen display, Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.0 running on top of it, along with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm SnapDragon processor—and the whole thing runs on T-Mobile’s “4G” HSPA+ network for mobile broadband capability. T-Mobile is also pre-loading a bunch of communications and entertainment apps, including Netflix and YouTube, along with Qik-powered T-Mobile Video Chat and Bobsled-powered Group Text.

T-Mobile will put the myTouch 4G Slider on sale in July for $199.99 with a two-year service contract; it’ll be available with black or khaki cases.
