We all knew that – with the decline of the Sidekick brand (and even with them trying to breath new life into it) – T-Mobile was putting their money behind Android and the MyTouch brand going forward. With the T-Mobile MyTouch Slide set to continue on the course that the original T-Mobile MyTouch 3G set sail on, T-Mobile’s getting as serious as they’ve ever been with it.
A recent launch timeline leaked from Engadget shows crucial dates in the MyTouch Slide’s path to a full-scale national blitz leading up to June 19th. “STAY TUNED – THIS WILL BE BIG,” are the words associated with that date. As we all know from our netiquette courses (you did take a course on netiquette, right?) when you type in big letters like that, it means you’re shouting, excited, serious, or all of the above. Beside all that, there are also reports that T-Mobile stores nationwide will be opening early on June 19th.
There’s no telling what T-Mobile has planned for the MyTouch, but they are obviously making a big deal out of it and so will we. We’ll add the date to our calendar and hope to get a bit more information on what’s going on June 19th ahead of time.
