T-Mobile USA and Samsung Mobile today announced the upcoming availability of two new Android-powered handsets, the Samsung Exhibit 4G and Samsung Gravity SMART, each less than $100 after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a qualifying rate plan on a two-year agreement.
Samsung Exhibit 4G
The Samsung Exhibit 4G is a touch-screen device powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and equipped with an 1GHz processor.
Live and on-demand channels from preloaded T-Mobile TV include free programming from select stations like ABC News Now, FOX Sports, PBS Kids and Azteca America. T-Mobile's customers also have the option to rent or purchase movies and TV programs directly from the Samsung Media Hub, which features a collection of new releases and TV shows. In addition, the Exhibit 4G offers hours of amusement with preloaded family favorites such as Bejeweled 2, Hasbro's SCRABBLE (in U.S. and Canada only) and Doodle Jump.
Becoming available in two color finishes - violet and black - the Exhibit 4G comes equipped with a 3-megapixel camera with flash and a camcorder, as well as a front-facing camera with video chat pre-installed.
Samsung Gravity SMART
As the first Android-powered handset in the Gravity product lineup, running on Android 2.2 Froyo, the Samsung Gravity comes equipped with Group Text and combines an horizontal, four-row, slide-out, QWERTY keyboard with a 3.2-inch touch-screen display featuring Swype for easy text input, even with the keyboard closed. In addition, pin it notes enables users to pin important messages to Gravity SMART's home screen for quick reference.
The device also features integration with popular social networking sites and a full HTML Web browser for posting and viewing status updates. The Gravity SMART also includes a 3-megapixel camera with LED flash, digital zoom and a camcorder for capturing photos and videos.
The Samsung Exhibit 4G and the Samsung Gravity SMART, both exclusively from T-Mobile, are expected to be available to T-Mobile customers in June.
