T-Mobile Handset Schedule Hits The Tubes

The kid has done it again, as the Boy Genius Report has snagged the upcoming release schedule for T-Mobile. It's packed full of some really cool handsets, including a new BlackBerry, and an 8-megpixel camera phone.

The kid has done it again, as the Boy Genius Report has snagged the upcoming release schedule for T-Mobile. It's packed full of some really cool handsets, including a new BlackBerry, and an 8-megpixel camera phone.Here's the tentative rollout plan:

Jan. 21: Sony Ericsson TM506 in scarlet

Jan. 21: Nokia 7510

Jan. 28: T-Mobile Shadow

Feb. 4: Motorola Renew

Feb. 4: Samsung t119

Feb. 18: RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900

Feb. 18: Samsung Memoir

The one that pops out at me is the BlackBerry Curve 8900, which has also been called the Javelin. This is the update to the much-beloved Curve, and Research In Motion says it's the thinnest-ever BlackBerry with a full QWERTY keyboard. Beyond the style, it has Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and the multimedia features you'd expect from a modern smartphone. The only negative is that it lacks 3G to hop on T-Mobile's growing mobile broadband network, but the EDGE support is more than enough for e-mails.

The other interesting release is the Samsung Memoir, which packs a whopping 8-megapixel camera. It's not technically a smartphone, but it should have 3G access, 3G, and it'll have the widget-happy TouchWiz user interface.

The Shadow should be a decent Windows Mobile smartphone, and it should be sporting Windows Mobile 6.1 and have T-Mobile's @Home access. The other devices may not blow your socks off if you're a smartphone user, but it's encouraging to see that many of them will have 3G access.

Thanks again, BGR.
