The "thinnest phone in the country" tag line originally used to market the t509 had to go away when the Trace launched, but at a scant .4" the handset still makes the RAZR look chunky.

Features of the t509s include:

  • GSM 850/1800/1900 + EDGE
  • Bluetooth
  • AOL/Yahoo/MSN/ICQ instant messaging
  • Speakerphone

The t509s is also compatible with the new myFaves calling plans that were launched earlier this week. T-Mobile is selling the t509s for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and 2-year service activation.
