If you’re in search of an iPhone alternative, AT&T might have the perfect thing for you: the new Samsung Eternity, a handset that’s now available via the largest US mobile carrier for as low as $149.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate and the signing of a 2-yr contract agreement).

    Similar to the Vu, the Samsung model isn’t described as a smartphone and so will compete more against high-end media phones. Samsung will bring its in-house operating system with a TouchWiz layer rather than use Windows Mobile like some of its touch devices. The leak would have the Eternity ship in November for $149 with a two-year plan. There’s already a fans forum for this at check it out folks.
