T-Mobile officially announced the myTouch 4G Slide (earlier known as HTC Doubleshot) last week but didn’t offer any details on the exact launch date. All we knew was that it would be launched sometime in July. It has to be noted that the T-Mobile 2011 roadmap that was leaked earlier suggested that the device would be hitting the stores on July 6th. Thanks to a new leak, the device is now rumored to be launching on July 27th.
