T-Mobile USA seems to be getting the message.
The carrier launched a quick-messaging phone from Samsung, the Gravity, joining AT&T Mobility and Sprint Nextel in support a quick-texting phone from the handset maker. Earlier this fall AT&T came out with the Samsung Propel, Sprint launched the Samsung Rant and Verizon Wireless launched the Samsung Glyde.
The quad-band global and UMTS and EDGE-enabled Gravity has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 1.3 megapixel camera, supports multiple instant messaging services and is enabled with T-Mobile's myFaves. It also has stereo Bluetooth and an expandable microSD slot capable of holding up to 4GB. The phone will be available on Tuesday for $49.99 with a two-year service contract.
