T-Mobile MyTouch Slide delayed until early June?

According to Brighthand the still unannounced T-Mobile myTouch  Slide Android handset is finally going to debut in early-June rather than May. Nothing is said about the causes of the delay but I wouldn’t be surprised if T-Mobile is trying to adjust the released date depending on what the competitors are planning. The myTouch Slide isn’t going to be a super high-end Android device which means that marketing will be a bit tricky especially with the HTC EVO 4G and upcoming iPhone media blitz this summer.

Is the MyTouch2 aka MyTouch Slide the HTC Espresso ?


The HTC Espresso was at first rumored to be an HTC Hero with a sliding-keyboard, it was then thought that Espresso was maybe only the name of the new updated Sense UI on Android. Now it looks like it is indeed a new Android smartphone with a sliding keyboard according to the picture posted over at DroidDevelopers. Strangley the screen looks kinda small and the reflection suggest that it’s resistive instead of capacitive. It is apprently called the MyTouch2 or MyTouch Slide (headed to T-Mobile US).
