Strangely, Samsung has somehow developed a bit of a niche reputation for rolling out SureType
-esque 20-key devices on T-Mobile USA, going back to the t719
flip -- and more recently, the t729
slider. It's an odd claim to fame, but it's a relationship they're apparently looking to continue with the upcoming introduction of the t349
candybar if a freshly-leaked doc is to be believed. This would mark the third form factor in as many handsets for the 20-key Sammy meme on T-Mob, but don't expect any amazing specs to commemorate the occasion -- it looks like we can expect a 1.3 megapixel cam, Bluetooth, and an utter lack of 3G data, so yeah, "entry level" is an appropriate phrase here. Anyhow, Boy Genius Report
has May 20 pegged for launch, so if you're looking for something between a numeric keypad and full QWERTY on your cheap texting phone -- aren't we all? -- circle that date on the calendar.
