Fun, fresh design

White, vaguely bubbly, and small, the Samsung DoubleTime is exactly the phone we'd expect to see...from T-Mobile.

While it's good seeing AT&T take some fashion risks, the specs on this puppy peg it as entry level, and already behind the times. There's a 3.2-inch HVGA touch-screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, only a 600MHz processor (by Qualcomm), and--wait for it--Android 2.2 Froyo, instead of the ubiquitous Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
