Hey folks, we know a few of you readers out there have been wondering about this slick new phone from Samsung and T-Mobile, and there’s some good news. Last month, we mentioned that the Samsung Gravity for T-Mobile was coming out November 17, and some commenters were chiming in today asking if this slide-out QWERTY is available (it’s not on the website yet). Our confirmations say the Gravity is now in stores, but not on display, so you can go in and purchase one today! Here’s a little recap for those of you who missed out on details last month:

  • Pull out QWERTY keyboard
  • Aqua with white or Lime with Gray finish
  • Web-enabled
  • Multiple messaging options (text messaging, picture messaging, video messaging)
  • Built-in email clients including AOL, AIM and Yahoo! as well as easy access to popular POP3 email such as Gmail

That is some killer battery life, eh? You can text and email for days without a worry. The phone comes in two color options: Lime with gray (pictured) and Aqua with white (we don’t know why they chose the color of the selector to precede the actual color of the whole phone). Grab yours today for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two year contract!

Samsung Gravity T459 hitting T-Mobile Nov. 17

A sweet little Samsung is coming to T-Mobile in the form of the Gravity T459. This slider phone should be a nice alternative for messaging freaks who don’t want to shell out for (or be seen with) a Sidekick or a more expensive QWERTY keypad device. The phone is packed with your standard features and then some, including a music player, ability to sync with PC (for easier transfer of songs and data), web2go and it’s MyFaves capable. The GSM/EDGE phone comes in Lime with Gray (as shown) and Aqua with White. Hit the jump for full specs and additional images!
