ZN5 and Tocco on T-Mo Nov

T-Mobile is planning to escalate its competition significantly in November with not just its primarily iPhone rival the HTC Dream but also two other devices, a release schedule leak at TmoNews shows. The carrier is now believed to be picking up Motorola's ZINE ZN5 on November 3rd as one of its best camera phones, with a Kodak co-designed five-megapixel camera. It will lack support for T-Mobile's 3G but will have Wi-Fi for faster short range access. No word has been given as to whether it would support the provider's HotSpot@Home VoIP calling feature.

The news also confirms a similar launch date for the touchscreen Samsung t919, which like the Dream will compete with AT&T's Apple-made handset and should supply 3G on T-Mobile's network. GPS navigation is also part of its design.

Both devices will purportedly be priced aggressively and cost $200 after signing a two-year contract, putting either in the same price class as the iPhone but above other challengers with less features, such as the Samsung Instinct at Sprint.
