AT&T launched yet another touchscreen device today, the Samsung Eternity, and like its namesake it’ll probably take that that long for it to reach any level of popularity. Why so you ask? They’re selling it for $149 after a 2-year and $50 mail-in-rebate. The iPhone is $50 more and offers a whole lot more (minus the TV and video capture part).
Funny enough, if the Eternity was launched a few year ago, or perhaps even a year ago (the iPhone was much more expensive then), it would have been the ‘must have device’ of the holidays. It’s rocking a 3 megapixel camera with still and video capabilities, 3G connectivity, GPS, a media player, AT&T’s Mobile TV, video share calling, Bluetooth, a microSD card slot for expansion, presumably a full HTML browser, and the quintessential 3.2″ (240×400) touchscreen with haptic feedback and accelerometer.
