Samsung Memoir gets panned

with 2 comments


T-Mobile is gearing up to find out what is America’s appetite for 8Mpxl camera phone in this economy. They are set to release the Samsung Memoir starting today. It is the first 8Mpxl camera phone launched by a US carrier. So, there are some expectations from that perspective.

The specs for this phone include T-Mobile 3G support, touch screen with Samsung’s TouchWiz interface, Xenon flash, HTML web browser, A-GPS and photo functions such as smile and face detection along with geo-tagging capabilities and ability to upload your pictures to Flickr and T-Mobile MyAlbum service. However, the TouchWiz UI is not all that great and does not have the pizzazz say the HTC TouchFLO does, according to Boy Genius Report. Also, considering the underlying OS is old Symbian S40, this phone will have limited appeal, maybe for the fans of Samsung Behold who might be ready for some 8Mpxl fun.

Another issue is the price point. At $249.99 with 2 year contract, it is hard for many to justify this phone especially when T-Mobile has some attractive pricing on the Blackberry Curve.

  1. For that price maybe having a better phone and a cheap digital camera is a best option.
