Wireless carrier T-Mobile is expected to soon release two new mobile phones, a white version of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 smartphone from Research In Motion, and the Samsung T959, an Android-based handset that is similar with the recently unveiled Samsung Galaxy S. The former device emerged in the carrier's internal systems and should land on May 5, while the latter has just received approval from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group.
The white BlackBerry Bold 9700 will certainly prove a great addition to the operator's lineup. Other mobile phone carriers around the world have already released the device
on their airwaves, as it offers a nice choice over the black flavor, though including the same specifications, it seems. No exact details on the price tag of the white Bold 9700 were unveiled, though it might not be priced differently from the available black model, which goes for $129.99.
As for the second mobile phone headed for T-Mobile, it should include a 4-inch AMOLED screen with full-touch capabilities, the Android platform from Google, Samsung's TouchWiz 3.0 UI, and Wi-Fi connectivity options. The Bluetooth SIG listing shows that the new device
is expected to arrive on the North American market, as UnwiredView notes
, though it seems that some typos have slipped into the UA Profile, which only shows support for EDGE/GSM Tri-Band (850 /900/1800) connectivity.
This would mean that the new handset does not include support for T-Mobile's 3G network, which would make no sense. No other details on the phone's specifications are available at the moment, but one should not be surprised if it emerges as a T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S
, especially since AT&T was previously reported to plan launching its own Galaxy S model too. Hopefully, it won't be too long before all the necessary info on the matter comes to light, so stay tuned to learn the news.
