W490 for T-Mobile in Oct.
Motorola's W490, a lower-end phone that nevertheless resembles the design of the KRZR, should now be launching with T-Mobile on October 1st, as opposed to the September date hinted at earlier. The phone now also has more solid specifications attached, and it should indeed have Bluetooth and a camera, the latter being video-capable and rated at 1.3 megapixels for stills. Removable memory is confirmed, though it is still not known whether this means miniSD or the more common microSD format.
T-Mobile, Costco and Target stores will be the first to have the phone, with colors including black, green and purple. Pricing has been set at $160 stock, but rebates and instant discounts may bring the cost as low as $50. [via Boy Genius Report]
