T-Mobile & Samsung Officially Announce 2 New Android Devices



T-Mobile and Samsung have announced the upcoming availability of not one but two new Android devices.  The first of the devices is the Samsung Exhibit 4G, first rumored back on May 7th.  The other is the Samsung Gravity SMART which is the first Android device in T-Mobile’s new Gravity line.

Although grouped in the “mid-range” category by both Samsung and T-Mobile, the Samsung Exhibit 4G is a 4G equipped Android device with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 1ghz processor. While Samsung has often times packaged movies with their Android devices, this time the focus is games.  The Exhibit 4G will come preloaded with Bejeweled 2, Hasbro’s Scrabble and Doodle Jump (in the US and Canada Only)

The Exhibit 4G will feature a 3 mega pixel camera with flash and video capability in the rear and a front facing camera to go along with the pre-installed video chat application which will allow users to video-chat over America’s Largest 4G Network.  The 4G HSPA+ radio is capable of theoretic speeds of 21mbps and makes it a snap to share photos and videos across social networks.

Although it’s considered a “mid-range” phone, the Exhibit 4G is sporting specs that would have been superphone specs just a quarter ago.

The other device, the Samsung Gravity SMART is the first Android device in T-Mobile’s Gravity collection.  The Gravity line up features top tier messaging phones and with Android packed onto the Gravity SMART it fits right inline with the other Gravity devices.  The Samsung Gravity SMART is expected to be a feature packed messaging device with Swype and Group messaging pre-installed.

The Samsung Gravity SMART will come in a berry red and a blue color while the Samsung Exhibit 4G is available in black and purple.  The Samsung Gravity SMART will roll out with Android 2.2 Froyo and a 3 megapixel camera with flash and video capabilities.

The Samsung Gravity SMART will feature a lot of the messaging features already packed into the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G.

The Samsung Exhibit 4G will be available later this month for $79.99 after a $50 mail in rebate. The Samsung Gravity SMART will also be available later this month in Berry Red and Saphire Blue for $69.99 after a $50 mail in rebate.  The Samsung Gravity SMART in Lunar Grey will be available for $29.99.
