Well isn’t this the day for pop announcements? T-Mobile has just released the Nokia 6301, above, and the Samsung SGH-t339. Both have Wi-Fi and allow you to make calls over T-Mo’s Hotspot@Home service using UMA. The Samsung has Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and music player. The Nokia is a bit sexier with 2-megapixel camera. Both are nothing to call my analyst about, so let’s not wake her.
