Moto Renew Samsung t119
T-Mobile will soon pick up a pair of entry-level phones, a pair of leaks from TmoNews show. The Moto W233 Renew should be pushed as an eco-friendly phone and will reportedly use "sustainable" components and boxing material in addition to its cosmetic green look. The candybar handset appears basic but is shown in a product shot to have a dedicated media key for music as well as support for T-Mobile's MyFaves calling feature.
A launch date and a price for the Renew are currently unavailable, though the device is likely due in the early part of the year.
A separate starter phone from Samsung, the t119, is simpler still and has basic apps, GPRS-only data and few other features. The bar phone also supports MyFaves but, unlike the Renew, already has an estimated release date of February 4th at an unknown price.
