It would seem the rumor-confirmation gods are favoring us this month. Not only have we seen a variety of rumors, but many of them have been supported with very convincing evidence. Continuing the trend, the fine folks over at Engadget have managed to uncover an FCC filing that appears to be showing the second generation of T-Mobile's MyTouch (or the G1, depending on your opinion), with the addition of a QWERTY slider.
The FCC documents reveal that the device in question is definitely made by HTC, just as the MyTouch and G1, and that it's supporting WCDMA Band IV, which is T-Mobile's 3G band. Last week we reported that the MyTouch Slide had shown itself (by name, not face) on RadioShack's Direct2U system and that it's rumored to launch around the 17th of May.
I'd like to say that clearing the FCC means that we should see this phone soon, but, last I checked the VZW Nexus One cleared the FCC mid-March and is still nowhere to be seen. Anyone care to take a guess when we'll see the MyTouch Slide?
Note: As we were about to post this article, David from TmoNews uncovered the first picture of the MyTouch Slide seen in the wild (see above). He mentioned that from the looks of it, the marketing campaign will be focused around the MyTouch's personalization features, and that the rumored launch date seems to be May 19.
