Samsung's 20-key T349 is T-Mobile bound; launches May 20th

We’ve just received this little nugget from one of our ninjas about an upcoming handset for T-Mobile, the Samsung T349. While the device itself is nothing too fancy, it is nonetheless a pretty interesting device in that T-Mobile has describes it internally as a “20-key messaging phone.” Despite the blurriness of the image above, we are able to see that the entry-level T349 indeed features a keypad much like the SureType keypads found on the BlackBerry Pearl and Pearl Flip. Specs are as follows:

  • 20-key keypad
  • 1.3 megapixel camera w/ video capture
  • SMS, MMS, Email and IM
  • Bluetooth
  • Speakerphone
  • Photo caller ID, alarm clock, calculator,
  • Mobile backup
  • GPRS connectivity

Look for the Samsung T349 to make its retail debut to both pre and post-paid subscribers on May 20th. Believe it or not, this little guy is the first new handset added to T-Mobile’s pre-paid line-up in the past year. Yay?
