It's here, the Eternity

The Samsung Eternity is solid a multimedia phone, but business users will be disappointed.

The Samsung Eternity for AT&T is the latest in a flurry of Samsung touch-screen phones to arrive at U.S. carriers. And now, after its debut five days ago, we've had the opportunity to give it a thorough shake-down.

Like the Samsung Instinct, the Behold and the Delve, the Eternity (aka the SGH-A867) offers a vibrant touch screen, a sleek design, and multimedia features. But it also shows its individuality by offering AT&T Mobile TV and a couple of design tweaks. The result is a solid multimedia device, but lacking Wi-Fi and full e-mail support, it stops well short of being a business-friendly handset. Call quality was satisfying, though the 3G connection was a bit shaky.

For a full report, read our Samsung Eternity review and peruse a gallery of glamour shots in our Eternity slide show.
