Nokia and Samsung T-Mobile
T-Mobile USA will have more than just the Samsung t419 and t729 to support its entry-level phone lineup, say newly leaked product spec sheets. The Samsung t219s will upgrade the t219 already at the carrier with a new Network Address Book feature: T-Mobile can backup the contact list on its servers, giving subscribers a chance to re-download their contacts in the event the files are corrupted or the phone needs to be replaced. Another device, the Nokia 2610, will drop such a feature but may allow sending recorded voice messages.
Both phones will also support T-Mobile's signature myFaves for unlimited calls to five friends, but omit features that typically add to the price such as cameras or Bluetooth. Prices will be free or near-free with contracts; the Nokia phone ships first on August 27th with the t219s appearing a week later on September 3rd. The t419 is due on September 4th, but no release date has been revealed for the t729. [via BGR]
