Samsung T719 BlackBerry

Without exception, every BlackBerry phone to date (including ones yet to be released) has adhered to the candybar format of most smartphones. The new Samsung T719 (pictured) will mark the first time any BlackBerry-capable phone has adopted the flip design so frequently used for cellphones. Though not made by Research In Motion, the T719 can handle BlackBerry "push" e-mail and uses the SureType keypad layout from RIM's own 7100 models, according to Phone Arena. As a phone, Samsung's new entry is quad-band GSM capable and includes Bluetooth, EDGE, and a 1.3 megapixel camera. US customers can already find a preview page for the new phone on T-Mobile's website, where it will go on sale for $300 in the near future.
