It's been a while since we've seen a new, exciting cell phone for T-Mobile, so when Samsung announced its SGH-T729, we took notice. Also called the Blast (yet another crazy Samsung nickname), the SGH-T729 offers a thin slider design, Bluetooth, a megapixel camera, and a QWERTY keyboard modeled on the SureType technology found on some BlackBerry smart phones. On the whole, the Blast is a solid effort for a messaging phone. We liked the design and the simple interface, but T-Mobile's lack of a 3G network is beginning to put it behind its rival carriers. The Blast is $99 with service, but before you rush out to buy, read our full review and take and take a gander at our slide show.
