For most of us gadget lovers, having our cell phone, music player and digital camera handy at all times is a must. Carrying around all these devices can be a hassle though.
Now, Samsung Mobile
and T-Mobile USA
have announced a new 8-megapixel camera phone, the Memior, which promises phone functionality, camera capabilities and other multimedia functions all in one device.
“This is the camera phone that will make people want to leave their digital camera at home,” said Bill Ogle, Chief Marketing Officer for Samsung (News
) Mobile. “When you combine the Memoir’s imaging capabilities, customizable menus and music player, not only is it a great phone, but the entertainment possibilities are unlimited.”
The Samsung Memoir, available exclusively from T-Mobile (News
), is a full touch screen device designed with the digital camera in mind. It includes a built-in 8-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, 16x digital zoom and five shooting modes so customers can still capture the high quality photos and video they get with a standard digital camera – without having to lug around an additional device.
To make the screen touch-enabled, the device includes Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface coupled with T-Mobile’s high-speed 3G network. With this, users can easily take and share photos and with a new photo widget from Samsung, even post images they take right to Photobucket (News
