Samsugn t819 at FCC
T-Mobile will have a third choice for its upcoming 3G Internet service beyond the Nokia 6263 and Samsung t639 shortly after it launches in the near future, the FCC has unintentionally revealed through a newly public filing. The Samsung t819 should be a slider alternative to the t639 and bring support for 1,700MHz UMTS access that makes video streaming and faster web browsing possible with the carrier. Legacy support for T-Mobile's EDGE network is also known to be included with the device.
Like the t639, the t819 will carry a 1.3-megapixel camera and should have a microSD slot for storing its media as well as some form of Bluetooth. Although a rough copy of the manual confirms T-Mobile's involvement with the phone, an actual release date and a price are unknown and may not come until early next year, reflecting a delay in T-Mobile's 3G service that will put it past the original late 2007 release window.
