Heh. I'm thinking of all the corny headlines I could use for this post, but I will spare you the cheesiness and just say that AT&T announced on Thursday the upcoming availability of its latest Windows Mobile smartphone, the Samsung Jack.

The Jack is the successor to the Samsung BlackJack II and will be in stores May 19 for a lovely price of $99.99 with a two-year contract. Like its predecessor, the Jack is a messaging-centric device, with its full QWERTY keyboard and support for multiple e-mail accounts, instant messaging, and of course, text and multimedia messaging.

The smartphone runs Windows Mobile 6.1, though Samsung says it will be upgradable to Windows Mobile 6.5 when it's available later this year. Other features include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, A-GPS with support for AT&T Navigator (Domestic and Global Edition), 256MB RAM, and a 3.2-megapixel camera.

We should have a review unit in the next few days so check back for a full review.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
