FCC approved a Samsung Pixon with AT&T-friendly 3G
As a whole, the US market is really short on cameraphones, especially in comparison with the European and the Asian ones. The first 5-megapixel phones offered by the carriers have appeared just recently and last weeks’ news give hope that the 8-megapixel era is about to begin.

The first evidence for this were the spy photos of the Samsung Memoir, which looks like it’s going to be offered by T-Mobile. Now, it is AT&T fans’ turn to cross their fingers, since a version of the Samsung Pixon (knows as M8800L), supporting the 3G bands of the carrier (850/1900 MHz) has been approved by the FCC. There is no information if it is improved (the Memoir seems to have a Xenon flash) yet. However, this should not worry the users, since this phone will be a giant step forwards for cameraphone fans… if, of course, it becomes available.

You can learn more about the European version from our full review.

Thats all I ever hear from customers is that they want touchscreen. Its disturbing when you get a 80 year old grandmother that can barely drive and use a computer and she wants a touchscreen phone. Grandma's going to be the biggest pimp at bingo night.

It's highly unlikely in my thoughts. T-Mobile will probably get the Memoir, but I don't think AT&T will get the Pixon just because it comes in a US version. If that were the case, I think they would have picked up the N95, N96, K850, and so on.

It would be nice if AT&T got this phone as an alternative to the iPhone.
