Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch

T-Mobile's myTouch 3G gains a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a larger display, and better software. What's not to like? Well, a few things, as it turns out.

If you liked the original T-Mobile myTouch 3G, but wanted a physical keyboard, the new T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide is what you've been waiting for. This sideways slider offers Android 2.1 and a full QWERTY keyboard for typing. Let's not forget some of that good HTC customization, as it has taken Android 2.1 in a slightly new direction to give it some personality. There are a few detractions, however.

Keyboard BLOWS

I have the G1 and was thinking about going to the myTouch Slide, but once I saw that keyboard... FORGET IT! I stick to my trusty G1
I love the keyboard on my HTC touch pro 2 and it is way better than this, but I'll miss it when EVO is out.
You should at least try it before you knock it. It works really well.
Its going to be hard to top the 5-6 row G1 keyboard. I did like it better. I don't agree with it "BLOWING", but thats all based on opinion at that point. I will agree with Eric about getting the "o9" and the "P0" mixed up, it happens to me when I use ...

Bogus review

I stopped reading this review after the first page. What kind of crap is this? The words you use to describe the phone are enough to keep anyone from gaining any interest in it whatsoever. I've had some first had experience and I can honestly say its no Nexus but its not as bad as PS cracks it up to be. It's not even accurate for crying out loud! 🤣 There is no search button on the front of the phone, its called the Genius button and its actually pretty useful. Most of the problems they whined about sound like they just dont know how to handle the phone I mean cmon phonescoop stop writing this garbage, take your bias opionions elsewhere and just give us a review of the phone seriously 🙄

Almost got all of the extras in there, Eric!

Couple of things that I noticed, or didn't notice in your review was, "Dragon Dictation", HTC Adobe Flash player, and pinch-to-zoom. "Dragon Dictation" is a voice recognition software that a lot of doctors use in the medical field.
I think everyone knows about Adobe's Flash software on web pages by now. I had the pleasure of using this phone for a couple of weeks now and the built in Flash player is AWESOME!!! I was also able to interact with an entire Flash site. For example, if you want to interact with a button in the Flash player, you can! 🙂 It was actually pretty smooth as well 🙂
Also, pinch-to-zoom is pretty much on everything! E-mails, Web pages, pictures, Google Maps with Voice navigation, just about anything you wanted to zoo...

What kind of specs does this phone have, Im at work so can not access some sites this is one of them I am allowed to be on. Wanted to see how fast it is and the quality of the screen.
The phone has an ARM-11 600MHZ processor. Pretty fast. This is the fastest GSM Android phone I have had besides the Nexus One.
