T-Mobile announces Nokia 6301 and Samsung SGH-t339, world yawns

Exciting these new handsets are not, but if you’re in the market for a middle of the road Hotspot@Home-capable T-Mobile device, your search just got a bit more cumbersome. First off is the Nokia 6301, which T-Mobile is describing as having “the style of a home phone with the look of a mobile”. We’re not entirely sure that’s a good thing, but we suppose you can be the judge. Specs include:

  • Wi-Fi-enabled; supports T-Mobile HotSpot @Home

  • T-Mobile myFavesSM-enabled
  • Music player (supports WMA, MP3, AAC and eAAC+)
  • Stereo Bluetooth connectivity
  • 2.0 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom and video capture
  • Expandable memory with microSD (support for up to 4GB)
  • Instant messaging; supports AIM, ICQ, Yahoo! Messenger and Windows Live
  • Speakerphone
  • FM radio

Next up is the Samsung t339, which is another yawner of a phone, sporting:

  • T-Mobile myFaves-enabled
  • Music player (supports MP3, AAC and AAC+)
  • Stereo Bluetooth connectivity
  • 1.3 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom and video capture
  • Expandable memory with microSD (support for up to 2GB)
  • Instant messaging; supports AIM, ICQ, Yahoo! Messenger and Windows Live
  • Speakerphone

Both are available immediately, but if it were up to us, these two would be sent directly to the D.O.A. pile.
