On June 28th, Tuesday, T-Mobile announced the latest myTouch smartphones called the "myTouch 4G Slide," which has "the most advanced camera of any smartphone."
The myTouch 4G Slide is an update to the previous generation myTouch 3G Slide, with a similar chassis and landscape QWERTY keyboard, but with a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon applications processor, a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen, and the overhauled camera.
The camera hardware includes an 8 megapixel, backside illuminated sensor with f/2.2 wide-aperture lens and dual LED flash; but the major improvements come in the software. Android's noticeable shutter lag has been improved, one-touch panoramic stitching has been added with "SweepShot," sequence shooting has been added with "BurstShot", and HDR mode has been added with ClearShot HDR. Though myTouch 4G is powered by Android Gingerbread 2.3, all of these improvements are unique to HTC's software. The only improvement 2.3 added in the photography department was by adding support for multiple onboard cameras.
By putting the software performance on the same level of importance as pixel density, HTC clearly has a strong grasp of what needs to be done to help improve Android in the world of mobile photography.
