Samsung Plum at T-Mobile

The US branch of T-Mobile thrives on obtaining exclusive phones to attract subscribers from other major networks, and has become especially friendly to Samsung in light of the Korean company's tendency towards ever slimmer fashion phones. This last fact became apparent today after T-Mobile announced the availability of three new Samsung models in its lineup. The most notable of these is the pictured t509 Plum, so called because of its rare dark purple color. Outside of its hue, the Plum is attention-getting thanks to its 0.39-inch thickness, EDGE broadband support, and a low cost of entry. T-Mobile carries the phone for $50 with a two-year contract.

Other choices made available today are the t619 flip-phone and the t629 slider. Both share a 1.3-megapixel camera as well as EDGE; the t629 has extra support for music playback and includes a microSD slot for storage. The t619 ships for $50 with the same two-year plan as the Plum, while the t629 can be had for $150.
