Nokia 7510 Supernova coming to T-mobile USA

Well this one is out of left field, but you can’t really complain about a phone that is called the Supernova. Wait, yeah we can! Where is the 3G or UMA?!

Well well well, what do we have here? We have seen T-mobile push phones before, but the W490, that little persistent bugger, has gone through yet another color refresh.
