AT&T launches Samsung Eternity

AT&T launches Samsung Eternity
With the holiday season getting close and AT&T releasing phones left and right, it comes to no surprise that they have launched Samsung's haptic feedback device named Eternity today as well.

The new multimedia phone comes with a 30-day free trial period for AT&T Mobile TV and features a full touch QWERTY keypad. The Eternity is also fitted with an accelerometer which comes into play for photo scrolling (by tilting the phone), games (ones dependent on motion sensing) and the auto rotation of the screen.

AT&T's brand new addition supports quad-band frequencies for worldwide GSM/EDGE networks but is limited to the US with the dual-bands in regards to 3G. Not only does it come with haptic feedback, the Eternity is also equipped with a 3 megapixel camera along with video capture functionality and an expandable microSD card slot that holds up to 8GB. The device is also capable of various services offered by AT&T such as Napster Mobile, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Mobile Music and Video Share calling.

The rich feature set on the Eternity is highly complimented by the addition of Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. This UI enables the user to have easy access to his/her favorite features with the use of customizable widgets. These widgets can be created by selecting a feature and simply dragging it and then dropping it on to the home screen.

The black and chrome Eternity is priced at $149.99 after a 2-year contract and the 30-day free trial of AT&T Mobile TV is valid till the last day of December '08.

It uses touch wiz which is Windows Mobile 6.1. So yes it will have a HTML browser. It does not specify if it's Opera or IE. But you can bet on IE.

this is NOT a windows mobile device! touch wiz was first used on a feature phone (the f480 tocco) maybe a few other phones THEN the omnia. but that doesnt mean it will not have a full HTML browser. i've seen the browser in action on and it looks quite nice. and just to let everyone know, this is not a dumb version of the omnia. its the stripped down, at&t version of t-mobiles behold.

it reminds of the behold more than the omnia... at&t and verizon get all of the sweetest phones and it gets on my freakin nerves.. tmobile gets a nice phone once every blue moon

This looks very similar to the i900 Omnia, but the specs are slightly different. Does this have a model number before AT&T changed it to the eternity?

8. unregistered

Its not the omnia, the model number is a867.

wow do i hate verizon fanboys! Can't they just admit att's phones are soooo much better than that of verizons...Stupid phones like the juke, envy, chocolate or even RIM Storm does not match up to att's lineup... While verizon fans will have their chocolate 8's in 2012, att will have something entirely new.....AND ALWAYS WILL!

as much as i love att over vzw, that isnt completely true, one of the best texting phones in the market is th env2, plus th storm isnt a phone to take likely either. but hopefully att's 4Q lineup knocks VZW out of the water.

Thank you! Verizon fanboys have an average IQ of that of a rat that has had a lobotomy.

nice but what's the point if AT&T service is crappy.

23. unregistered

it may be crappy where you live but ATT service is usually very good.

24. unregistered

Perfect where I live. I never have any dropped call or crappy service, ever.

A nice phone for people who don't want an Apple iPhone 3G. I actually might pick this one up.

36. unregistered

hello, get ready nov. 21st Blackberry STORM!!!!!!!! Circuit City Locations

37. Jyakotu unregistered

Whenever RIM is smart enough to release the Blackberry Storm on AT&T, then I'll get it. Until then, the Storm is a no buy for me.
