It wasn't long ago that a 3G phone announcement on T-Mobile USA was a groundbreaking event, but we're happy to see that it's slowly fading into normalcy -- that takes some of the adrenaline-fueled excitement out of the launches, of course, but if that means we're getting blanketed with AWS HSPA, that's a tradeoff we'll gladly take. The t659 is a fairly typical (for Samsung, anyway) slider with a 2 megapixel cam, Bluetooth, microSD support up to 16GB, AGPS, an integrated RSS reader, and that aforementioned HSDPA -- realistically more speed than the average t659 user will ever need, assuming they're within the bounds of T-Mobile's limited 3G footprint. Grab it now for a shade under $70 on contract after rebate and discount.
