Besides releasing the Alias 2 , Samsung on Monday announced the availability of its Magnet messaging phone for AT&T. Unveiled last month at CTIA , the Magnet is a very affordable $19.99 with service and a $30 mail-in rebate.

In case you don't remember, the Magnet has a standard candy bar design in bright orange. It's positioned as a low-end messaging phone and in many ways it looks the part. The display sits above the large navigation array and full alphabetic keyboard. Features include a camera, a personal organizer, and a speakerphone. We'll post a review as soon as Samsung sends us a sample model.
