myTouch 4G Slide, T-Mobile’s new flagship, for shutterbugs

Bellevue-based T-Mobile USA today unveiled the myTouch 4G Slide, a new flagship Android phone for its HSPA+ network.

The phone will go on sale in July with a khaki or black case. UPDATE: T-Mobile disclosed the price – it’s $200, after a $50 rebate and with a two-year contract and data plan.

It’s positioned as a phone for photography enthusiasts, which may help it compete with new photo-friendly models offered by Sprint and coming soon to AT&T that take 3-D photos and videos but don’t have as many 2-D photo capabilities as the Slide.

The myTouch 4G camera has an 8 megapixel sensor and a new “zero shutter lag technology.” The latter that begins recording as soon as you push the shutter button and stores the content in a memory buffer, T-Mobile explains in the release.

“When you snap the camera button, rather than waiting for a mechanical shutter, it looks at the time stamp of when you pressed the button and pulls the photo from the cache,” it said.

Other camera features include a backside illuminated sensor and wide aperture lens for improved low-light performance. It also has a “sweep shot” feature for taking panoramic shots with one click, and a burst mode for taking multiple shots simultaneously.

The phone also functions as a 1080p video recorder and can be used to edit video on the device. It also has a front-facing camera for video chats, full HTML browser, support for Adobe Flash and Swypte text input.

Inside the phone has the HTC Sense 3.0 interface on top of Android 2.3 — the Gingerbread version. It has a a 1.2 gigahertz dual-core Snapdragon processor, a 3.7-inch diagonal WVGA touchscreen and a slide-out keypad.
