T-Mobile Schedules Samsung Dart Launch For June 15th

The Samsung Dart may not get the glory of some Android smartphones to hit T-Mobile (see Sensation 4G) but it’s still a great and affordable Android phone for new smartphone owners. Arriving on June 15th the Dart provides all the standard Android goods along with a 3 megapixel camera, 2GB SD memory card, bluetooth and Swype enabled. The Dart is geared to individuals and families who want an affordable Android phone that can help them stay connected on the go. The Dart may be the perfect companion phone for the little one while mom and dad get the Sensation 4G and all the goodness that comes with it.

    Love them on hate them, Samsung is KILLING it with so many releases for every type of user.  It seems like every 2 weeks.

      Quantity is not better than quality.  Samsung would do well to release and support less phones rather than create variations on the same theme and then kicking them to the curb later with the lack of updates.

        Quantity is certainly “better” for their bottom line of profit.  And since a great deal of users are fairly ignorant on specs (and frequently do not care even if you explain them), I would assume they are killing it in terms of public perception as well.

        Samsung has the best of both regardless. Quantity and Quality.

  • dirk

    Too bad EVERY Samsung phone has an issue with GPS…and TouchWiz is trash.

      My Nexus S by samsung disagrees with your dumb notion. Quit trolling.

    Will this phone be compatible with Phone First Web plans? I know SOME smartphones are compatible with this feature, like the Nokia Nuron and LG Sentio. I am looking for a phone for my father that does not require a smartphone web plan but can take advantage of Google Maps and Wi-Fi Calling. If anyone can suggest one, if this phone does not support Phone First Web, I would appreciate it. It is hard to find a good, quality phone that does not require a smartphone web plan that has a maps capability and also Wi-Fi Calling.

    • Cheap

      phone first web is $10 right??? which is the same as 200 mb might as well get him the lg optimus t or any android phone just depend on which phone he wants and the Nokia Nuron is not a good phone we see so many people come in with problems with them

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ASLY6MKMKHP2HSETXPT73RZNPA infantry11b

        Most of those with problems are due to not knowing how to set the memory up appropriately, kind of like the HD2…either piss poor onboarding, or user error.

      • Schippma

        Well the 200 MB plan is $15 with my plan since it is grandfathered. The phone first web is $10 but only certain phones are compatible with the plan. I have heard mixed reviews on the Nuron but it has no wi-fi function so no wi-fi calling. The Lg Optimus T is not compatible with the phone first web but the Lg Sentio is compatible with the plan, however, again, the Sentio has no wi-fi. I guess my only option is to upgrade to the $15 plan, however, I can’t justify an extra $5 a month for web that will be barely used. I mainly just need a phone that has the wi-fi calling app wwithout requiring a smartphone web plan.

          you need to get off your old plan and get on a new plan.  You will save money and be able to get the 10 data plan.  You will save money with the new rate plan.

    Is this gonna be prepaid?

    Galaxy S II please… Samsung has really dropped the ball letting the Sensation hit the states before any word on the GSII.

    • http://profiles.google.com/brooklynboiz Jamille Browne

      Not really 

  • AndroTMO

    Silly Sammy, we already have this phone.  It is called the Exhibit 4G.

    In all seriousness though: really T-Mobile?  Two phones that are almost identical?  I see this one not being sold, as the Exhibit is 4G.

    There is not enough of a difference between the two of them in a customer’s eyes to justify having two models that look almost identical at first glance.

    • Mmmaxheadroom

      The dart will be a prepaid option

  • Mmmaxheadroom

    Ahh the wonderful behold 2 NOT that price of trash has made me sure never to by a Samsung product again EVER. And I mean any productfrom samsung as that behold 2 is still in my nightmares!

    I have no interest in this phone, but seriously they call it Dart? it’s like a tard went derp and farted it out!

  • http://twitter.com/Lawless_1 Lawless_1

    I went from a G1 to a Highlight to a Behold II to a Mytouch 3G Slide to a G2 then to a Sidekick 4G and I can tell you Samsung phones have a much higher quality build than anything from HTC. Light leakage, creaky plastic, loose hinges…… not with Samsung. And don’t call me a Samsung fanboy because I had the Behold II when we got screwed out of eclair I never said they were a better company than HTC just that their products are physically much more solidly built.

    PS- this should have been called the Highlight II.

    • steven

      i would click like but i respectfully disagree regarding build quality.

      but. agreed- it definitely should have been called the Highlight II

      so- half of a like!

    • Ghostman34

      Samsung quality better than HTC…? What you smokin? You must be a fanboy or Samsung rep or something. HTC hardware is far and beyond anything from Samsung.

      • http://twitter.com/Lawless_1 Lawless_1

        I said build quality not overall quality. My sidekick is as solid as a brick while my G2 is filled with creaky sounds and a loose hinge. But to answer your question, what I am smoking on is very good.

  • HD2android

    I agree the so called Z hinge on the G2 is rather unorthodox …But i can not in anyway say Samsung makes better devices than HTC does! the hardware is top notch almost every phone ! yes this is my opinion but to me Samsung phones feel cheap!! i like to know i have more than a great LCD…

    this is the Samsung Galaxy Mini sold in many other countries, a nice and cheap device.

  • NHWTMobil

    I had a 3G my touch. I have only had it for 1 year and paid full price. It recently started turning on and off and not allowing me to text without shutting it down and turning it back on after every other text or so. The Samsung they (T-mobil) says is it’s equal. I am not happy to have paid for an HTC phone and kept up the insurance and warrenty for a product that is not the same.
