Samsung t219 at T-Mobile
The American division of T-Mobile today began carrying the Samsung t219. The budget flip-phone brings a level of sleekness to the field, says the cell network: a glossy red or brown shell frames both the outside and the inside, while an unusually large external LCD provides a quick notifier for calls and signal strength. Basic Internet access is also a staple feature: AIM, ICQ, Windows Live, and Yahoo messages will all relay though the phone.
The t219 works with T-Mobile's MyFaves service for making free calls to five favorite contacts regardless of their provider, and sell for $20 as part of a two-year agreement. Click through for profile shots. [via Phone Scoop]
