Samsung T919 for T-Mobile launching soon

Back in August, we told you about this pretty Samsung making its way to T-Mobile. Well, now there are release dates and pics galore! Apparently called the “Behold” rather than the “Tocco” (both ridiculous names, really), this 5 megapixel camera phone will be hitting T-Mobile on November 10. Word on the street is that the damage will be $149, but we’ve yet to confirm if that is post-rebate or not, but you can bet the attractive pricing is going to involve a contract. Also, here’s a quick reminder regarding some of the specs in case you forgot or were wondering what such a bargain phone could offer:

  • 5 megapixel camera
  • Front-facing secondary camera
  • GPS WITH voice command
  • Streaming video support
  • Video ringtone support
  • Capacitive touchscreen
  • MicroSDHC support
  • Brushed aluminum back
  • Consumer email functionality

So far nothing has been solidified in carbonite yet, but for the most part this phone will be packing some serious features. How will it fare against the G1? Well, we really don’t need to tell you… hit the jump for more pics!

New Samsungs FREE from T-Mobile

New Samsungs FREE from T-Mobile

Every so often, T-Mobile will have a month where one product or brand is heavily discounted or even free (with certain restrictions, of course). Starting on September 3, all Samsungs will be free! And like all of T-Mobile’s promotions, some of the Samsung models will only be free after mail-in-rebate. Seems like a fantastic way of prepping for the awaited release of the Samsung Tocco (T919), which is hopefully coming out much sooner than later.

Here is a list of the Samsung phones you can pick up for free (with eligible upgrade or new contract):

  • Samsung T229: FREE
  • Samsung T429: FREE
  • Samsung T339: FREE
  • Samsung T639: FREE (after $50 MIR)
  • Samsung Blast: FREE (after $50 MIR)
  • Samsung Katalyst: FREE (after $50 MIR)
  • Samsung T819: FREE (after $100 MIR)

[Thanks, Roger A.!]

Samsung’s Sexy T919 Coming to T-Mobile

Samsung’s Sexy T919 Coming to T-Mobile

Hello T-Mo! Word on the street is that T-Mobile US users have a treat coming their way via Samsung. Call it T919, Tocco, Roxy or whatever else you want; Samsung’s feature-rich touchscreen will be a fantastic grab for any T-Mobile users as long as they can do without a smart OS. What’s more? This bad boy will supposedly come packing the coveted 1700 MHz WCDMA band. A quick look at some more spec highlights:

  • 5 megapixel camera
  • Front-facing secondary camera
  • GPS WITH voice command
  • Streaming video support
  • Video ringtone support
  • Capacitive touchscreen
  • MicroSDHC support
  • Brushed aluminum back
  • Consumer email functionality

There are also rumors of WiFi being included as well but absolutely nothing to substantiate that claim at this point. No word yet on pricing or an official announcement but expect this puppy to be snatched up pretty quickly once it is released.

UPDATE: While it might look like there is a front-facing camera above the light sensor, we’re getting word from TmoNews that it most likely isn’t. Video-callers will have to keep their fingers crossed.
