T-Mobile quietly launches T619 and T629 from Samsung

The Trace has been getting the lion's share of the attention, but it turns out that the svelte candybar isn't the only new Samsung kid on T-Mobile's block this week: the T619 flip (separated-at-birth twin of Sprint's SPH-M500) and T629 slider have quietly started filtering into the hands of users, too. The unassuming, midrange handsets' spec sheets roughly mirror one another, packing 1.3-megapixel cams and Bluetooth. Either one can be yours for $150 on contract -- after all the rebates have worked their magic, that is.
Update: Turns out the T619 clamshell goes out the door for more like $80 after rebates, making us wonder what justifies the difference in cost versus the T629; is a microSD slot and a slider form factor really worth an extra $70?
