T-Mobile is now carrying the Nokia 3555. A slim flip phone in a lovely blue shade, the 3555 looks a lot like AT&T's Nokia 6555. It offers a midrange selection of features including a VGA camera, stereo Bluetooth, text and multimedia messaging, a speakerphone, voice dialing, a music player, quadband world phone support, personal organizer applications, and a wireless Web browser. Given the other features the inclusion of a VGA camera is a little odd, but even stranger is the dualband WCDMA (3G) support. T-Mobile has promised us a 3G network by this summer, but considering we first heard that 2007 would be the launch year, we're not holding our breath. However, since the carrier continues to introduce 3G-capable handsets, we figure something will happen before too long. The 3555 is a reasonable $149, but you can get it for as little as $49 if you buy it online.
