Usually when Samsung announces a T-mobile launch the world hardly takes notice. T-mobile fans yawn and hope for something better in the future, you know something that doesn’t have a VGA camera. Well sports fans, here we go, Samsung actually has something good in store for us. Not just good, great, its a T-mobile Samsung on steroids. Here she is the Samsung T919 aka “Tocco” aka “Roxy”:
It sports a 5 megapixel camera, GPS WITH voice command (think those annoying Sprint Instinct commercials), streaming video, 3G love, “awesome” video ringtones, capacitive touchscreen, POSSIBLE wifi but we are definitely NOT sure on this one, up to 16 gig memory (micro-sd), glossy black front or “fingerprint magnet” as we like to call it with a brushed aluminum back, streaming video and consumer email functionality built in. This IS a dumbphone folks, so smartphone lovers beware as it is one of the hottest dumbphones around.
Now we know questions will come because T-mobile UK has the same exact phone, however there are visual differences such as the T-mobile branding on the screen, the UK version does not have it, in addition to he lack of a front facing camera. We trust our eagle eyed tipster Brian that this is indeed the real deal, that Samsung has finally woken up on the right side of the bed and decided to give T-mobile stateside some touchscreen love.
Next up: More Sony Ericsson 3G goodness, 1 slider, 1 flip…oh yes, that’s coming too.
Once again thanks to Brian!
