Part-time modeling with the T-Mobile Concord (pictures)

The T-Mobile Concord may be low on the specs, but with its stylish dark-blue wood-grain-esque design, it's the most beautiful phone... in the room.

It's business time: T-Mobile Concord

Though it doesn't flaunt high-tech specs, the T-Mobile Concord has all the essential midrange features for the inexpensive price of $100 and was designed for first-time smartphone users -- if that's what you're into, that is.

This is not a contract

The T-Mobile Concord is available at Target and Walmart and does not require any carrier contract.

The OS is so potent

Unfortunately, the Concord ships natively with the dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The T-Mobile Concord sports a unique, dark-blue back plate reminiscent of wood grain.

Weedy and kind of light

The Concord measures 4.59 inches tall, 2.43 inches wide, and 0.45 inch thick. It's also lightweight at 4.48 ounces, but feels hefty and dense in the hand.
