See, not all those juicy toys coming out of Korea have to be overpriced. Just because you can’t get your hands on Samsung’s UMPC – despite its hefty MSRP – doesn’t mean you can’t afford a piece of the ultra-thin and high-tech pie. The Samsung t509 is now available through T-Mobile for a miniscule fifty bucks, after the usual song and dance involving mail-in rebates, contracts, and the like.
The 0.4-inch thin candybar comes with a good smattering of features; tri-band connectivity and ready to make use of T-Mobile’s EDGE network for high speed data. There’s also a camera on-board (likely VGA) that comes with 4x digital zoom, Bluetooth connectivity to keep you wireless, and a number of pre-loaded IM clients (AOL, Yahoo! and ICQ) for your l33t-speaking convos.
Other features include speakerphone, a bunch of trademarked ringtones (“MegaTones” and “HiFi Ringers”, whatever that means), and your standard issue personal data things like a calendar, calculator, and alarm clock.
