T719 for T-Mobile

Word had been received in advance that Samsung would produce a BlackBerry phone for the US division of T-Mobile, but today both the phone and its service have been made official. The T719 is one of the few phones made outside of Research In Motion to give access to BlackBerry networks' "push" e-mail, and is the only one which uses a compact flip-phone shape. Samsung has also used RIM's narrow SureType keypad to avoid the extra girth characteristic of higher-end BlackBerry models. As might be expected from a BlackBerry device with a more phone-like style, the T719 is less business-like and includes a 1.3-megapixel camera for photos and videos. T-Mobile says that the T719 is now available from its website for $200 after discounts.

    No PocketMac Support

    I talked to PocketMac. They're not planning on producing a driver for the t719. So there's no email, pim or backup available. Shame we don't have it. I love having a real phone that does BlackBerry email.
