Samsung Eternity arrives from AT&T
AT&T seems to be kept pretty busy these days with a slew of new cell phone releases, and the Samsung Eternity is yet another handset from the wireless carrier. This highly advanced touchscreen phone takes pride in itself being a multimedia centric device which is one of the best in its class, although it remains to be seen whether it is able to challenge the iPhone 3G’s dominance or not. At the very least, you’ll be able to stay on par with your entertainment options as the Samsung Eternity supports AT&T Mobile TV, and each purchase comes with a 30-day free trial for new AT&T Mobile TV subscribers to get them started (hooked should be the operative word instead, I say).
The Samsung Eternity not only comes with one-touch access to AT&T Mobile TV, you also get a full touch QWERTY keyboard for fast and easy messaging as and when required. Not only that, you are connected to the nation’s fastest 3G network, while being able to access a whole host of AT&T-specific features such as AT&T Navigator and AT&T Mobile Music with Napster Mobile. The 3 megapixel camera is not good enough to capture award winning photographs, but it ought to do enough to snap candid shots for posterity. In addition, the Samsung Eternity also comes with a generous 3.2″ touchscreen display that boasts haptic support, making sure that you get sufficient feedback for each “button” pressed on the screen. There is a trio of dedicated keys located on the lower portion of the device to ensure ease of use and navigation.
Other specifications include video recording capability, Video Share calling, mobile email support, Instant Messaging capability (Yahoo!, Windows Live, AOL), Bluetooth connectivity and a microSD/microSDHC memory card slot for expansion options. You will be able to pick up the Samsung Eternity for $149.99 with a two-year service agreement and after a $50 mail-in rebate.
