Another iPhone Competitor on AT&T?

Samsung Omnia

We all know that AT&T is the proud carrier of the iPhone, and also the iPhone competitor LG Vu, but now rumor is they are about to add another all touchscreen phone to their lineup. This new phone comes courtesy of Samsung, called the Samsung Omnia. And drum roll for the features which come courtesy of Boy Genius Report:

  • GPS with AT&T Navigator
  • AT&T Mobile TV (lets you watch live TV)
  • AT&T Music and Video
  • AT&T 3G
  • Mp3 Player with either 8 GB or 16 GB of memory built in (similar to iPhone 3G?)
  • 5 Megapixel Camera with Face Detection
  • 3.2 inch touchscreen
  • Windows Mobile 6.1

Rumors for release are this fall, but nothing has been made official yet, including the price for this latest touchscreen. So for those thinking about purchasing one of these new touchscreens which one will you get– this one, the Vu, iPhone 3G, switch to Verizon and get one of their new phones? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

First Look- zzzPhone

Here is something that is completely new for us here at TeenTechBlog, a first look and “hands on” review of a product. The device we have here is a whole new cell phone concept out of China called the zzzPhone. What the zzzPhone does that separates it from all the other cell phones from manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Samsung, and Apple , is that the zzzPhone allows for the buyer to choose the features the buyer would like in their cell phone. An example of some of the features available to be customized are the camera (standard is 2 megapixels, but could go up to 5 or 7, and there is also an option to get rid of the camera all together and save $11). There are also many other features to choose from and we will be getting to them in the coming days with a review of this model and the smartphone Windows Mobile version (also touchscreen with a 2 megapixel camera, but also ships with the latest and greatest version of Windows Mobile… 6.1!). In the meantime here are a few pictures of both phones with more coming with the review and interview with a fellow teenager Jesse Nowlin who just so happens to be working in this company (and also hooked us up with the phones).
