The MyTouch 4G Slide is the latest in T-Mobile's line of consumer-friendly Android smartphones. Its predecessors have occupied a curious place in the Android ecosystem: decidedly focused on consumers yet sporting a set of features and specs that could have a shot at drawing users away from high-end Android handsets.

The MyTouch 4G Slide fits right into that MyTouch ethos -- both by hanging on to T-Mobile's customized version of HTC Sense and by including just enough technical wizardry to make power users think twice about ignoring it. Specifically, HTC has included a great 8-megapixel camera and a well-integrated set of software and hardware to back it up. Can the MyTouch 4G Slide take the MyTouch line into the upper echelons of Android smartphones? Read on for our full review.
