QWERTY FTW! T-Mobile myTouch Slide caught in the flesh

Take the T-Mobile myTouch, and strap on a physical QWERTY keyboard. Give it a light tap with an ugly stick, and then convert the trackball into an optical trackpad. What do you get? The myTouch Slide.

Once a figment of our imaginations (and hopes and dreams), the myTouch Slide has been popping up endlessly around the rumor watercooler as of late – and here it is in all of it’s plasticky flesh, according to the gents over at DroidDeveloper.

Alas, the rumored specs aren’t all that impressive – they’re pretty close to what the original (and now rather aged) myTouch has been packing since it launched a few months shy of a year ago. The screen is pushing pixels at a pretty mediocre resolution of 320×480, and the processor is seemingly clocked at the same speed. On the upside: Its got QWERTY! and a 3.5mm headset jack! and it’s presumably running Android 2.0 or later!
