The Samsung Moment is the first Android device from Samsung, and it’s generally a winner. The display is simply gorgeous, and the call quality is so good your callers may not believe you’re using a mobile phone.
If you’re already heavily invested in Google for your calender, email, and contacts, you’ll have a fabulous experience. If you don’t you’ll still have a good time but you won’t as quickly have that “aha” sense of joy when all of your personal information is magically loaded into your phone.
The only slight drawback to the Moment is that it is relatively large and not *quite* as slick as the HTC Hero, but overall it’s a really nice device that deserves a closer look — unless you’re a real photobug.
It’s available now from Sprint for $180 with a two year service agreement, after a $100 mail-in rebate.
