HTC DoubleShot (aka MyTouch 4G Slide) Forums Added
It looks like T-Mobile’s latest addition to their line up is yet another sibbling of the HTC Sensation. The HTC Doubleshot, aka MyTouch 4G Slide is the Sensation 4G’s keyboard-equipped brother. This device keeps many of the features from the Sensation such as the 4G connectivity, an 8 MP enabled camera with the ability to record video on 1080 (FullHD), same dual core 1.2 GHz processor, 768 MB of RAM, and several other “quirks”. The best part is that we couldn’t have added it at a better time because as you may have heard from an article published yesterday, AlphaRevX has been used to successfully get hboot S-OFF on the device (read: full root). As the platform that they have seems to be similar, then the tool should work (with some tweaks and elbow grease, of course) on the Doubleshot as well.
The forums are officially open and the device should be getting on the hands of developers shortly. So, if you have one already and would like to share some of your experiences already with this beauty, please do so in the appropriate section.

I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
