Sprint announces Samsung Moment Google Android device, which would you buy?

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.

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
  • Accelerometer

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.
