As we warned you two weeks ago, T-Mobile's Samsung Gravity goes on sale Monday.
The messaging phone is a dead ringer for the LG Rumor, in both features and design. Highlights include a slide-out alphabetical keyboard for rapid messaging, a 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a speakerphone, organizer features, and a microSD-card slot. The Gravity (aka the SGH-T459) is Samsung's third messaging phone since October after the Propel and the Rant.
At T-Mobile, it joins the recently announced Samsung Behold touch-screen phone. It is available for $50 with service in either lime or aqua.
