A week after it launched the Samsung SGH-T539 Beat, T-Mobile quietly unveiled the Motorola W490 without so much a peep of a press release. The midrange camera phone is now appearing on the carrier's Web site for $49 with service. Features include Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, text and multimedia messaging, instant messaging, a speakerphone, a music player, personal organizer applications, and quad-band (GSM850/900/1800/1900) world phone support. Clad in basic black, the W490's design is based loosely on the design on the Moto Krzr K1; it has a 0.7-inch profile and a narrow front face.
