It seems that Amazon has dropped the price of the Samsung Moment for Sprint by quite a bit.  Originally listed for $179.99 with a 2 year contract, the Moment is now available for the very low price of $79.99. While far from being the most exciting Android smartphone on the market, the Moment is one of the few available with a gorgeous AMOLED touchscreen display and it does have a speedy 800MHz processor.

Sprint’s Samsung Moment Android smartphone is now available for purchase for $179.99.  If you head on out and buy one of these AMOLED-equipped smartphones, leave a comment at the end of this post and let us know what you think.

Here’s a quick unboxing and initial hands-on with the Samsung Moment. Without getting into a full review, which I’m not ready for, here are my initial impressions of the device. Build seems solid.  The 3.2-inch AMOLED display is very nice, yet seems not quite as saturated as some other Samsung AMOLED displays I have on devices in my collection.  The touchscreen response is good, and the touch controls under it work surprisingly well, too.  Optical joystick seems a bit jumpy, but the camera shutter and voice dial button have a good feel, as does the volume control. The keyboard is…

Samsung released all of the details, and a photo, of its new m900 Moment for Sprint.  The Moment is the first AMOLED touchscreen device on the Sprint network, and it features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera.  WiFi and EV-DO Rev. A data are also on-board, of course, and the device even features integration with Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter. The 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen display features the same half-VGA (320 x 480 pixel) resolution found on most Android devices, and even comes equipped with Microsoft Exchange support built-in.  It measures up at 4.6in…

We should be seeing the official release information for the Samsung Moment for Sprint in a little over an hour, but Samsung released a few bits of information on the upcoming device in a press release that recently went across the wire.

The Moment is the first Sprint device to include a brilliant 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen display and…

Seemingly immediately after the official announcement of the I7500, Samsung’s first touchscreen Android phone was caught on video. The video, which can be found on YouTube, highlights just how good that active matrix organic LED (AMOLED) touchscreen display is. You can see the video after the jump:

There is growing news about the possibility of Samsung’s S8000 “Cubic” potentially sporting Android as the operating system of choice. We already know that the Korean outfit will produce three Android devices this year, but blurry pictures aside, we haven’t really received much information apart from that. Well things may have changed, as we now have some potential gossip on Samsung’s first Android based device. The mobile version of the Czech Republic website iDNES has reported some juicy bits of information about the Android hopeful, including the 5MP camera with dual LED flash that we (kinda) already knew about. Apparently,…
