RadioShack, or “The Shack” as it will soon be called, announced last month that it would be snuggling up with T-Mobile in locations across the country. What we don’t know — or didn’t know, rather — was exactly which handsets the retailer would be carrying when its T-Mobile offering goes live on August 19th. A ninja just hit us with a giant internal launch document that sheds light on various internal resources, training, merchandising (see the image to the right) and plenty more involved with the Tmo launch. All that stuff is pretty boring however, so we cut the fat and were left with the list of devices the Shack will be hawking, 11 in total, beginning two weeks from tomorrow:

Postpaid handsets:

  • Samsung T239 (red)
  • Sony Ericsson TM506 (amber)
  • Samsung Gravity 2
  • Samsung Comeback (red)
  • BlackBerry Curve 8900
  • Samsung Behold
  • HTC myTouch 3G (black & white)

Prepaid handsets:

  • Nokia 1661
  • Samsung T239 (gray)
  • Nokia 2760
  • Samsung T349

Sure we already know plenty about each and every handset mentioned above, but you know you still want to hit the jump and check them out.
