Pearl alternative? Samsung T719 now on T-Mobile

Chris Ziegler

We can't vouch for the quality of its keys, but Samsung's floated its own piece of SureType pie in the SGH-T719 clamshell, a form factor you'll not soon find in RIM's stable (at least, as far as we know), and it's now available on T-Mobile. As we reported earlier, the BlackBerry Connect-enabled phone comes equipped with a 1.3-megapixel cam, Bluetooth, and EDGE -- all features we expect in a garden-variety Samsung launching on T-Mobile, leaving the ridiculously easy push email (and matching oddball keypad layout) as its claim to fame. The $200 T-Mobile's asking for the T719 seems a touch steep to us, but then again, where else ya gonna get a BlackBerry flip phone?
