Review: HTC myTouch 3G Slide
The music player has garnered a little bit of attention from HTC. The basic library and song/playlist discovery process are mostly the same, but HTC has re-skinned the player itself. When music is playing, rather than a static picture of the album cover with playback controls under it, you can swipe through the songs in the current playlist. It's not much, but it's something.
The menu items allow you to share the song, add it to playlists, look at song file info, but falls short of offering much-asked-for features such as an equalizer of any sort.
There is no FM or XM radio, but the Slide comes with the Amazon MP3 store pre-loaded. It is a breeze to use Amazon to search for and download music if you already have an account.

One thing worth noting, the way the lock screen works when music is playing is really cool. When you press the lock key once, you see the album cover and you have access to the play/pause rewind/fast-forward buttons without unlocking the phone first. Music controls are usable with the phone still locked. This means you can shut off the music player quickly when it needs to be silenced. That's a nice feature.
Music playback through the speaker actually sounded pretty good. It sounded better through stereo headphones. Music playback through stereo Bluetooth headphones was pretty good, too.
