Originally announced back in September, the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic phone was only available Stateside if you bought an unlocked version for well over $300. T-Mobile is going to announce Wednesday at 3GSM that starting February 28, the carrier will sell it for $99 and a two-year contract.

It's a good price for a phone that CNET Reviews was pretty impressed by: it's a GSM/GPRS/EDGE slider phone with Bluetooth support, has a 1 GB SD card slot, 1.3-megapixel camera, standard 2.5-millimeter headset jack and an adapter for the headphones of your choice. That way you can still wear white earbuds if you need to blend in among the iPod-toting masses.

Yahoo Music is the official partner for downloads to the XpressMusic phone, and T-Mobile is offering three free downloads upon sign-up.
