Taking on a very similar form factor to the Highlight, AT&T officially announced the impending arrival of the Samsung Solstice.  It’s for the most part your garden variety touchscreen phone with a 3-inch display, Samsung’s TouchWiz UI and haptic feedback.  Unlike the Highlight, though, the Solstice includes 3G connectivity but lacks a lower rez 2 megapixel camera.  Memory comes by way of microSD card slot and I’d expect the usual other amenties such as a music player and Bluetooth.

You can expect the Solstice at AT&T on August 2nd for $100.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
