Samsung Moment is another Android-powered phone for Sprint
Samsung and Sprint have announced today that the Android-powered Samsung Moment (known from leaks as Instinct Q) will be available through the carrier starting November 1st. The Moment will have a side sliding QWERTY keyboard as well as offering Sprint's first 3.2 inch AMOLED display. The phone will also feature an optical joystick, a 3.2MP camera with AF, flash and video capture, and Sprint TV. To make the phone up to the moment (pun intended), there will be easy access to social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. Music buffs will be happy to know that the unit sports a 3.5mm audio jack and sports fans will drool over NFL Mobile Live and Nascar Sprint Cup Mobile. Running off a speedy 800MHz processor, the Samsung Moment will cost $179.99 after a $50 instant discount, a $100 mail-in-rebate and a 2 year contract. And as the carrier is fond of saying in its television spots, that's what is happening at the Moment.

LOL not named the InstinctQ after all. Also a lot cheaper than the InstinctHD. The IHD is destined for failure.

I have to disagree about the HD, if my money was better I'd have both but now a choice has to be made

This might be the phone worth ditching SERO for.

I don't wanna get yelled at, but could someone tell me why everyone makes such a big deal about Google Android?

i won't yell lol but...just do some a little reading. :) it's just such a GOOD OS. you can customize it...thats the main thing, in my opinion. there are some sites that i can recommend:;; just take a look around. oh...yeah...and android supports flash. thats a major one :)

not gonna yell either, and hope i don't get yelled at for criticism....but he's right (realism121) its all about widgets and ease of access. and apps from the android market. but the thing is its such a dry interface....meaning it has no visual appeal at all. the first attempt at customization is the sense UI, which is destined for success. its just that it seemed so revolutionary at first but then it just became another plain and bland interface....just kinda forgotten again :(

If this would've had ptt like they said originally it make the decision easier, as it stands the cam and HD is putting that extra $20 at Best Buy in a good light
