The Samsung Highlight in fire Samsung

T-Mobile'sSamsung Highlight is the newest model in Samsung's touch-screen phone line that began last year with the Behold.

Also called the SGH-T749, the Highlight is positioned as an entry-level touch-screen device. On the outside it sports an agreeable design in either fire (red and orange) or ice (almost a turquoise).

You'll also find a stylized pattern on its rear face and well-designed physical controls. The 3-inch display is on the small side, but it compensates for size with a brilliant 16 million-color resolution.

The feature set isn't extensive, but it's respectable. You'll find a 3-megapixel camera, a music player, stereo Bluetooth, PC syncing, and USB mass storage, voice dialing and commands, messaging, and Web-based POP3 e-mail, a personal organizer, a 2,000-contact phone book, instant messaging, GPS, a full HTML browser, a speakerphone, and a file manager.

The Highlight goes on sale Wednesday for $149 with a two-year contract. Check out our Highlight review for the full story.
