New HTC Touch, better than the old HTC Touch

When the first one was released a few months back everyone went crazy for the small form factor, innovative touch interface, and slow as hell processor. The new Touch Slide improves on the non-slide model by adding a BlackBerry Pearl-like sliding QWERTY keyboard, 3G data, and the industry standard 400mhz Qualcomm processor.

The device is slightly thicker now but the keyboard and faster processor make it a worthy sacrifice. There are no details as of yet regarding which carrier will get this first or when but we’re assuming it is going to be AT&T some time in October.

Hit the jump for more shots.
