June 2, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

HTC, with ample support from T-Mobile, is inching closer to the official launch of their new myTouch version phones. A glance through the carrier’s roadmap will reveal that the HTC Doubleshot – also known by the name of myTouch 4G Slide – will be the next to arrive in this series. The device has just passed through the FCC.

The FCC credentials refer the device as PG59100 and showed that it would support GSM 850 and 1900 bands along with the WCDMA band IV and 14.4Mbps HSDPA. The phone flaunts a sliding QWERTY keyboard as well. The device comes with a dual-core Qualcomm 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor with an Adreno 220 CPU and 768MB of RAM to boost the processing department.

 

Official information regarding the specifications of the gadget is absolutely sketchy. However, rumors suggest that phone that sports a 3.7-inch WVGA LCD display would come with dual-cameras – a VGA front shooter and an 8 megapixel rear snapper. The phone will also support 1080p 3D recording.

If you are wondering when this model will be hitting the markets, no official word is out as yet. Going with the recently leaked T-Mobile roadmap, the HTC Doubleshot should be arriving sometime around July 6th.
