Samsung t819 Launch Leak
The release details of the Samsung t819 slider and its potential network have been leaked, says a spec sheet leak from BGR. The escaped information largely confirms the feature list with a 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, and microSD storage; the device is now known to be shipping in at least a coffee brown hue and will be available sometime in January with support for instant messaging and T-Mobile's My Faves calling feature.
The release may also point to the unveiling of T-Mobile's anticipated third-generation cell network. The t819 is the third phone that will see service with the 1,700MHz band on T-Mobile after the Nokia 6263 and the Samsung t639 but comes months after the company was originally expected to roll out its 3G service in the US.
