Kent was a senior managing editor at CNET News. A veteran of CNET since 2003, he reviewed the first iPhone and worked in both the London and San Francisco offices. When not working, he's planning his next vacation, walking his dog or watching planes land at the airport (yes, really).
The same day T-Mobile formally released the Nokia 3711, AT&T countered with two announcements of its own. The Samsung Mythic and Flight will land in the carrier's stores on Sunday, November 8.
Like the 3711, we first saw the Mythic and the Flight at last month's CTIA show in San Diego. Both offer touch screens and AT&T's new mobile browser, but they take different approaches to design.
The Mythic has a 3.3-inch touch screen, a thin profile, and minimal physical controls. Features include a speakerphone, an HTML browser, 3G, a virtual QWERTY keyboard, Samsung's TouchWiz interface, a speakerphone, GPS with AT&T Navigator, Bluetooth, a memory card slot, a 3.2-megapixel camera, messaging and e-mail, support for AT&T Mobile Music and AT&T Mobile TV, and a personal organizer. It will sell for $199 with service.
The Flight is a slider handset with a physical QWERTY keyboard. You can get it in red or silver. Inside you'll find a personal organizer, a 2-megapixel camera, a speakerphone, messaging and e-mail, Bluetooth, a memory card slot, GPS with AT&T Navigator, support for AT&T Mobile Music and AT&T Mobile TV, and 3G. The Flight is $99 with service.
