#CTIA09: Samsung Impression for AT&T
Checking out a phone that’s named Impression should incline me to use the phone’s name as an adjective or description (used in a sentence: “I was impressed by the Samsung Impression”). But don’t worry, folks — I won’t put you through that.
Seeing the Samsung Impression A877 was a genuinely good experience, however. This year Samsung is making a huge fuss about AMOLED screens and how they’re all the rage, and I can certainly tell a difference between the two screen styles. The Impression’s screen was crisp and clear, and colors were very easily distinguishable and beautiful.
Apart from that, to be honest, there’s not a ton to say. The Samsung Impression is essentially an Eternity with the same camera, nicer screen and a full QWERTY keyboard to accompany it. But it still uses Touchwiz UI and the same programs as are available on the Eternity.
Fortunately I am very excited about the possibilities Touchwiz will offer soon, as yesterday Samsung announced it was opening up Touchwiz UI to developers. We may see some wonderful apps for these devices soon.
Without further delay, however, I give unto you the Samsung Impression.
