First Look: Samsung Memoir

0:56 /

At GSMA 2009, Kent German takes a look at the Samsung Memoir.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Hi, I'm Kent German, Senior Editor at CNET.com. I'm here at the GSMA World Congress in Barcelona. I want to show you the Samsung Memoir. It is a touch screen phone, so there's a really expansive display, very bright and colorful. It has a TouchWiz interface, so that does mean that there are widgets here in the side. The phone does have a virtual keyboard. If you rotate the phone like this, does have an accelerometer and you can actually use the numeric keypad and to type text messages. I'm not sure why you want to do that. I mean if I have a QWERTY keyboard I'm going to use that. And the main focus of the Memoir is the camera. If you turn it back, the phone does look like a regular camera in many ways. You can see that the lens is sort of jets out a little bit. And this goes up to 8-megapixel. It will be the highest resolution camera phone with the U.S. carrier. Of course that record isn't going to last forever, but it's important to know that for the time being. I'm Kent German, and this is the Samsung Memoir. ^M00:00:54 [ Music ]
