myTouch 3G Slide rumored for $149 on June 16th

T-Mobile handed out the myTouch 3G Slide to a bunch of their employees for testing purposes so we have learned pretty much everything about the phone except for its price and launch date. New documents posted over at TmoNews suggest the phone will sell for $149 with 2 year contract or $399 off contract. We knew T-Mobile was aiming for the mid-range audience so this price fits in with their current Android lineup. The normal myTouch 3G is still going for $149 with 2 year contract as well, but we expect that price will fall next month.

Earlier rumors had placed the Slide launching June 2nd, but it looks like it has now been pushed back to June 16th. We’ve heard reports from Slide testers who have recently received OTA updates on their phones, so it sounds like HTC and T-Mobile are still fine tuning the software. If the Slide launch is indeed moved back a few weeks, we expect the Android 2.1 upgrade for the normal myTouch 3G is bumped as well.

If you are looking for an entry level Android phone with full QWERTY keyboard on T-Mobile, the myTouch 3G Slide is probably your best pick till maybe Christmas. Those looking for a high-end phone just need to wait a little longer.
