After using the HTC Hero on Sprint now for over a week I have almost made the decision to add a Sprint account to my mobile arsenal, even though I don't have the strongest reception in my area. Sprint just has too many extremely compelling devices for me to resist and I may just have to figure out a way to make it work. The latest announcement brings us the Samsung Moment launching on 1 November for $179.99. This is the second Google Android device and it has a full QWERTY slide-out keyboard. I need to get my hands on it and see how it compares to the outstanding HTC Sense UI experience on the Hero.
Specifications of the Samsung Moment include:
- 3.2 inch AMOLED 320x480 pixels capacitive display
- 4 row QWERTY keyboard
- 3.2-megapixel camera with flash and camcorder with auto-focus
- 802.11 b/g WiFi
- Integrated GPS receiver
- Stereo Bluetooth® 2.0 wireless technology
- microSD card slot
- Media player with 3.5-millimeter headphone jack
- Visual voice mail for quick and easy access to specific voice mail messages
- Proximity sensor
Samsung generally has some good camera phones so I hope to see some quality images from the digital camera. I also need to find out more about the Exchange ActiveSync support and see if it includes Calendar and Contacts like the HTC Hero.
