The myTouch 4G Slide is officially on its way to T-Mobile. The carrier confirmed previous rumors this morning, announcing that the phone would arrive in the states this July.

The myTouch 4G Slide is essentially the HTC Sensation with a slide-out keyboard. T-Mobile claims the phone has the most "advanced camera of any smartphone with zero shutter lag, backside illuminated sensor and additional premium digital camera features that offer consumers a viable replacement for their digital point-and-shoot cameras."

About that camera – the 8-megapixel camera has a dual-LED flash, and a number of built-in photo modes that are demo'd in the video above:

· SweepShot™: for capturing panoramic shots by sweeping across an entire scene in a single motion
· ClearShot™ HDR: for capturing objects in bright settings so your photos are not affected by high-contrast lighting · BurstShot™: for capturing multiple photos in a quick burst so you don't miss the perfect photo

Photos you take can be instantly uploaded to Facebook, as well as photo sharing sites such as Picasa and Flickr.

So, besides the camera what are you in for?
