At first, there was one. One rumor to rule them all. According to this rumor, the myTouch Slide would be hitting store shelves on June 2nd.
And then.. another was born. The sky darkened and the sun fell black; according to this second rumor, the myTouch Slide would be reaching stores not on June 2nd, but June 16th.
Turns out, they’re both sort-of-right. Hurray!
T-Mo has just officially announced that the myTouch’s QWERTY-packin’ brother, the myTouch 3G slide, will be launching at T-Mobile stores, t-mobile.com, and a handful of authorized dealers on June 2nd. Come June 16th, it’ll be made available at all of the dealers/outlets that didn’t get in on the first run, with T-Mo firing up a marketing campaign focusing on the device at that time.
As predicted, the Slide will come in three colors: Black, White, or Red. Props to T-mobile for not dubbing these colors “Ghostly White”, “Butt-spank Red” or any of those other nonsense names generally associated with hue variants. Expect to drop $229.99 out the door, with a $50 mail-in rebate bringing the final price down to $179.99 on a 2-year contract.
