samsung t629As expected, T-Mobile has launched the Samsung t629. The t629 is a mid-range slider that replaces the aging t809. Even though it's newer, the t629 actually sports a lower resolution screen than its predecessor. Everything else is an improvement however:

  • Quadband GSM plus EDGE
  • 176×220 screen with 262k colors
  • 21MB memory plus microSD card slot
  • Yahoo/MSN/AOL IM
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • Stereo Bluetooth

T-Mobile is selling the t629 for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and 2-year service agreement.
