Samsung t639 Leak

T-Mobile USA's impending 3G network is about to receive its first phone, according to newly leaked company material. Rather than use HSDPA similar to AT&T's network, the Samsung t639 (shown) will connect to T-Mobile's 1700MHz UMTS service and deliver comparable high-speed Internet access anywhere within the carrier's own coverage. The clamshell design will be similar to many of Samsung's mid-range phones with a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and media playback from a microSD card.

No mention has been made of whether T-Mobile will expand its online services to take advantage of the extra speed and match AT&T, Verizon, and other rivals' present-day music and video streaming features. The company plans to release the t639 on September 10th and may match the release with official availability of its UMTS network, though the provider has only promised that it would launch the service and corresponding phones sometime mid-year.
