T-Mobile goes retro with Samsung T239

Samsung's new T239 for T-Mobile prepaid sports a familiar design.

The T239 won't win a fashion show. Samsung

T-Mobile's newest prepaid phone would have fit in a couple of years ago, but we have to say that it looks a bit dated today. Indeed, the new Samsung SGH-T239 sports a signature slider design that we've seen many times before. The trim handset is fairly ordinary, but you can choose between gray and maroon models.

Its features include Bluetooth, text and multimedia messaging, a personal organizer, instant messaging, a VGA camera, a wireless Web browser, and a speakerphone. The T239 is $59.99
