T-Mobile gets the Samsung Stripe

We heard tell that the Samsung Stripe would be going to T-Mobile earlier this month, and it turned out to be true. The GSM carrier launched the Stripe today, so named because of the vertical gray stripe down its middle. As we mentioned previously, the Stripe is on the lower end of T-Mobile's offerings: it features a simple VGA camera with 4x zoom, Bluetooth, instant messaging, a speakerphone, T-Mobile's MyFaves support, and not much else. Also dubbed the Samsung SGH-T329, the phone is now available for a very affordable $49.99 after a rebate and a new contract.
