“Find Midget Circus” – Things You Can Find With the MyTouch Slide’s Genius Button


First of all, let’s clear the air right now: midget circuses are real and have been for a very long time. Having thrown that disclaimer out there so as to not offend anyone, that’s one of the phrases I would use with the MyTouch 3G Slide’s Genius Button if I actually need to find a midget circus.

They’ve started airing their television ad campaign and – from the looks of it – it could be very successful for them. If not for the simple fact that a lot of people will be impressed by what the genius button does, then for the prospect of having the latest version of Android and HTC’s Sense UI on a device with a slide-out QWERTY (trust me, it’s not that easy to find).

Even if it may not be the most powerful of devices out there, it can certainly get the job done and T-Mobile’s made the phone look like an everyday device for a wide range of people. Successful ad campaigns be damned! They get me so excited.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Got one (for free) this past Saturday. LOVE IT. Haven’t noticed any slowness or lag. Apps fly. Genius button is truly a revelation for me.

  2. it’s amazing how they show off some very hi-tech stuff in such a casual approachable way. You speak, it acts…why, of course that’s how it’s supposed to work!

  3. hey…isn’t this supposed to be part of the *next* version of Android?

  4. Just lost my Blackberry 9700 and on a whim, I switched over to the MyTouch Slide. After just 24 hours with my new phone, I can safely say that I will never buy a Blackberry again…where have I been all this time?

    Genius rocks BTW.

  5. I got it for free at Radio Shack this past Saturday. I love to phone itself, but I can’t say I really like the Sense Espresso. I think that I will probably put a custom ROM on it when some come out. Hopefully Cyanogen will support the Slide.

  6. The Genius button is nothing but a regurgitated idea made simple by a single button press. You could speak to google maps, your text app, your voice dialer and still do the same thing. Heck you could voice command a google search of the web before Genius. Nothing new. Just convenience made more convenient. I personally rarely use it.
    However, the phone itself is great and I love everything (except HTC Sence Espresso and the TMobile bloatware). Froyo cant come fast enough!

  7. TMO is not gAyT&T & doesn’t have bloatware, genius.
