Samsung debuts SGH-T719 BlackBerry-like phone

Samsung launched the new SGH-T719 phone, which looks a lot like a BlackBerry. The phone looks like a slim, back flip phone, but open it up and you'll discover it has a keypad just like the popular BlackBerry 7100-series phones.
The T719 is the fruit of a new program called BlackBerry Connect, an effort by BlackBerry makers Research in Motion to bring its push e-mail software to other manufacturers' phones. The first BlackBerry Connect phone, Nokia's 9300, came on the market in the U.S. earlier in March. But the 9300 was a slightly clunky, PDA-style phone; the T719 is much sleeker.

The 3.5-ounce T719 also features a rotating, 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a speakerphone, advanced voice recognition and EDGE data support, Samsung said in a press release.
