No, Samsung didn't launch a direct competitor to the LG Chocolate (though I wouldn't put it past them) but they did introduce a chocolate-colored phone. I admit I wasn't quite expecting it, but the company today unveiled the Samsung SGH-T219 for T-Mobile. Though technically it's an upgrade from the Samsung SGH-T209, the SGH-T219's simple flip phone design actually looks more like the Samsung SGH-T619 (minus the camera lens), which also lives at T-Mobile. The phone is available in both red and chocolate, which unlike LG's black Chocolate is just a basic brown. Features are soundly on the simple side with a speakerphone, messaging, and basic organizer options. Unfortunately, it only has tri-band support (GSM 850/1800/1900) so it's not a true world phone. Yet, it is cheap at $19.99 with service.
