We’ll be honest, if these rattling are the prototypal shots of the T-Mobile myTouch Slide in the wild, we’re earnestly not impressed by HTC’s organisation skills on this occasion.  Taken by a Droiddeveloper tipster, the shots show the rumored QWERTY phone (aka the Espresso or the myTouch2) rank with an optical trackpad.
