Samsung Memoir goes all official at MWC ’09

Samsung is at it again – they’ve pulled all the stops on a new cell phone known as the Samsung Memoir that brings yet another 8 megapixel shooter to the camera phone scene. The Korean consumer electronics company has teamed up with T-Mobile USA alongside photographer and model Helena Christensen to bring the Samsung Memoir to the masses. This touchscreen phone comes with an 8 megapixel camera that features premium imaging functionality, and it will be made available to all and sundry – as long as you don’t mind agreeing to T-Mobile USA’s terms and agreements of course, from February 25, 2009 onwards.

Helena Christensen is one of the privileged first few who managed to get hands-on experience with the Memoir, and she has been using it as her official phone and camera to shoot images as she travels between New York and Barcelona. According to Christensen, “As a photographer it was great for me to be the first to try the Memoir and to really experience everything it is capable of doing. It’s very important that my mobile phone also double up as a great camera, that way I always have my camera on hand to capture images at any moment. That’s what a big part of photography is about.”

The Samsung Memoir is poised to offer a high-quality digital imaging experience right on your cell phone. It features an integrated 8-megapixel camera inside that boasts best-in-class digital imaging features such as Xenon flash, CMOS auto focus and 16x digital zoom. Through the Memoir’s camera menu, you are able to perform various functions including adjusting the brightness and flash, change the default destination of images, select a timer and zoom in or out.

As with many other recent Samsung phones, the Memoir will come with their very own TouchWiz user interface for easier navigation, and you will also benefit from a couple of widgets that offer one-touch access to information and entertainment. There is no word on pricing as at press time, but you have another 8 megapixel shooter to choose from now.
