We have seen plenty of images of the myTouch 3G Slide over the past few weeks, but little was known about the internals of this T-Mobile exclusive. A source in possession of the phone has shed some light on this issue, giving us our first real idea of where this phone sits. The myTouch 3G Slide will ship with the following under the hood:

  • A 600 MHz ARM processor,
  • 512MB RAM,
  • 512MB on-board storage,
  • A 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash.
  • An 8GB MicroSD card included in the box,
  • Android 2.1 with HTC’s Sense UI and multi-touch support

Aside from the processor, the specs aren’t all that bad, with 512 MB of RAM and a 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash. As expected it doesn’t match up to the upcoming Android powerhouses of the Droid Incredible, HTC EVO 4G, and Samsung Galaxy S, but it should make up a decent mid-range Android offering. Absent due to the lower processor speed will be Live Wallpaper support, but chances are if you’re in the market for this phone that won’t be a deal breaker.

The phone will come with Swype installed as the default soft-keyboard (and if you know me, you know I’ll gush sweet nothings about Swype for hours if you get me started), as well as a large selection of media-driven T-Mobile apps, including a streaming music service in the vein of Pandora. That sounds about right, as a phone with these specs and this form-factor will no doubt be marketed to the younger, style-over-function crowd rather than the die-hard tech types.
