Yes, AT&T internal documents leaked to several sites had this coming out in October, but now we’re getting reports that the release of the Samsung Eternity is imminent. There were rumors floating around that a big delay was in the making (or perhaps that the phone had been scrapped altogether), but those have been shot down (see screenshot next to this paragraph).
Now comes deciding if someone special in your life (or yourself) deserves an ‘Eternity’ Christmas or not. First off, the price is set at $99 after a $50 mail-in rebate that will be offered (great price, an essential ingredient in a hit phone these days). The secondary target date was Nov. 4th, which has passed of course.
But…Inside sources have reported that AT&T stores have been given permission to start selling the Eternity as soon as shipments come in, which should be very soon (next week or two perhaps?).
Specifications of the Samsung Eternity will include: 3G support, MediaFLO for full screen TV support, GPS built in, and a 3MP camera (instead of the rumored 5MP, ouch, not good news on that front; blurry pics here we come).
The Samsung Eternity also comes with the TouchWiz UI many have raved about, and the display is big and sharp. There’s even an auto-rotation feature for messaging that presents you with a nice big full screen QWERTY keyboard (something Apple could learn from).
This one sounds like it could be the real deal, but only time will tell once its released into the wild.
