Samsung Exhibit 4G and Samsung Gravity SMART to launch from T-Mobile on June 22nd
Just the other day, we reported that sometime this month, T-Mobile would be launching two new Android models,the Samsung Exhibit 4G and the Samsung Gravity SMART, for the budget conscious smartphone buyer. Today. both T-Mobile and Samsung announced that the pair will be launched on June 22nd across all of the carrier's sales channels.

For a price of $79.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a signed 2-year contract on a qualifying plan, the Samsung Exhibit 4G offers many features that you would see on a much more expensive phone. With a 1GHz processor, single-core of course, and a 3.7 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, the Exhibit 4G is a perfect handset for the first-time smartphone owner. And while many higher priced models are launching with Android 2.2 aboard, the Exhibit 4G will have Android 2.3.3 under the hood.

The only place where the manufacturer skimped a bit is on the 3MP camera, but then again, there is a VGA front-facing camera on the model. And the phone does have HSPA+ connectivity with theoretical peak download speeds of up to 21Mbps which explains the "4G" next to its name. The device is available in violet or black and comes with T-Mobile T.V. and the Samsung Media Hub which offers downloads of movies and television shows.

If you are looking for a messaging device or a phone with specs a little lower down the scale, you can save $10 by purchasing the Samsung Gravity SMART. Available at T-Mobile stores in Berry Red and Sapphire Blue for $69.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a signed 2-year pact on a qualifying plan, you will get an Android phone loaded with Froyo and equipped with a 3.2 inch screen. Heavy texters will have a choice of using the slideout landscape QWERTY keyboard, the stock Android keyboard that comes with Android 2.2, or the pre-installed swipe to type application Swype. Group text is also featured. If you don't mind owning the phone in Lunar Gray, you can purchase the Gravity SMART for just $29.99 online after rebate and with your John Hancock on a 2 year contract. Again, you must agree to a qualifying voice and data plan.

Who says that you have to spend a ton of money to get a loaded phone? The Samsung Exhibit 4G offers many of the same features that you will find on handsets costing 2 or 3 times its price. And the Samsung Gravity SMART features three different ways to type accurate texts and emails for a price as low as $29.99.
