If you like the MyTouch 3G (HTC Magic) on T-Mobile but can't live without a hardware keyboard, HTC has the answer: the MyTouch 3G Slide. As the name implies, it has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but it otherwise maintains a strong resemblance to the MyTouch 3G.
The software's been spiffed up with Android OS 2.1 Eclair and a customized version of HTC Sense UI software that's easy to set up if you're a newbie. The camera is a 5 megapixel model, and it has the usual trio of GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth. It's available now from T-Mobile for $179 with contract.
