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.

For openers

The design looks to be the best part of the phone, opening like a book.

The phone face flips open on hinges to reveal the four-row QWERTY keyboard with physical navigation keys and a second screen below.

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

Inner screen

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.
