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.

Hinges

Pink accents on the keyboard suggest this phone's target demographic. Note the four navigation buttons and an OK button on the QWERTY keyboard.

Bottom's up

A Micro-USB charging port is on the bottom. Remove the back cover to find the 2GB microSD expansion slot. It takes up to 32GB cards.
