HTC MyTouch 3G Slide was supposed to launch on May 17th. However, there are now indications that this launch date may be deferred till the 2nd of June. According to reports on TMoNews, the rationale behind the delay is not known and the website speculates if this has got anything to do with inventory shortfall issues similar to those faced by HTC HD2.
However I would tend to believe that it is more so as a way to offer a buffer time to avoid a similar situation that HD2 suffered. Also, could the recent Volcanic Ash from Iceland likely to have caused logistical delays? Just saying..[via TmoNews]
