Samsung Memoir finally available from T-Mobile

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.
