For many reasons, be it environmental, minimalist, etc., phone boxes have become bland and basic. Thankfully, it looks like T-Mobile has eschewed those type of simple boxes for packaging that is downright cool--the myTouch Slide is housed in a nicely designed, silver briefcase. 

Obviously, what's inside the box counts more than the box itself but it's clear that if this is the retail packaging for the myTouch Slide, that T-Mobile cares very much about the device. In non-box news, the guys at the Droid Sector have unboxed the myTouch Slide and played around with it, concluding that it's very fast. We'll judge for ourselves when we review it but in the meantime hit the jump for some pictures of the myTouch Slide!
