T-Mobile USA and Samsung have kept their promise regarding the release of Samsung Memoir, and now the 8 Megapixel camera phone is finally available for purchase across the US.
Coming as North America’s first 8MP handset, Samsung‘s Memoir T929 is a full-touchscreen phone that can be bought for $249 with a 2-yr T-Mo contract agreement. Or, for those who don’t need a new contract, the phone costs $499.
Its 8MP camera features autofocus, xenon flash, geotagging and video recording at 30fps. And while it may not take pics at a quality comparable to a digital camera, it could still prove to be one of the best cameras you’ve ever seen packed into a phone.
Among Memoir’s other specs, we must mention:
- 3 inch TFT touchscreen display with 240 x 400 pixels
- TouchWiz UI
- Stereo Bluetooth
- HTML browser
- 1GB MicroSD card in the package
- Talk time: up to 5.5 hours
- Standby time: up to 12.5 days
- 105.9 x 53.6 x 14 mm
- 125 g
T-Mobile sells the Samsung Memoir both via its official website and in its retail stores across the US.
