Android-based Samsung Moment launched on Sprint network
Sprint and Samsung Mobile are announcing the upcoming availability of Samsung Moment, Samsung’s first U.S. handset integrating the open Android platform with the high-speed CDMA EV-DO Rev A 3G network from Sprint.

Samsung Moment represents a new generation of portable Internet access devices and provides access to built-in Google mobile services, including Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail and YouTube, as well as thousands of applications available in Android Market.

The handset also offers the first Sprint 3.2-inch AMOLED touch-screen, offering crisper colors and wider viewing angles than other display screens. The new Samsung Moment is powered by an 800 MHz processor, making this device one of the fastest wireless phones available today.

“Sprint is thrilled to add the powerful and sophisticated Samsung Moment to our growing portfolio of Android devices,” said Kevin Packingham, senior vice president of product development for Sprint. "This is the second Android product that will be available from Sprint this holiday season. With a full QWERTY keyboard, Samsung Moment allows customers to easily access the thousands of applications available in the Android Market. The excitement around Android products confirms Sprint’s decision several years ago to be a charter member of the Open Handset Alliance and lead the Open revolution.”

“The launch of Samsung Moment is an exciting realization of our commitment to providing consumers open, powerful and versatile devices,” said Omar Khan, senior vice president of strategy and product management for Samsung Mobile. “With the combination of the Android platform, applications, Web browser and a powerful 800 MHz processor, the user experience options are unlimited.”

Both companies are charter members of the Open Handset Alliance, the organisation behind the Android platform.

Through Android Market, Samsung Moment users can download thousands of applications, widgets and games on their phone. Pandora, ShopSavvy, Twitter, Shazam, amazon.com, USA Today, Flixster, PacManTM, CraigslistChecker, and MySpace Mobile are among the countless applications already available on Android Market.

Additionally, customers can access Sprint Navigation and Sprint exclusive applications NFL Mobile Live and NASCAR Sprint Cup MobileSM already preinstalled on the device. Samsung Moment is a perfect solution for anyone who wants the freedom to stay connected on-the-go and enjoy a PC-like experience.

Samsung Moment offers simple device navigation through an optical joystick located just below the display. It features Wi-Fi capability, integrated GPS navigation and accelerometer. Additional features include:

- 3.2-megapixel camera with flash and camcorder with auto-focus
