Samsungs New Exhibit 4G and Gravity SMART blur the lines between Feature Phones and Smart Phones
Samsung introduces two new devices that spell out the death of feature and dumb phones. When looking at the “evolution” of mobile phones you can see a pretty large divide when looking at the difference between feature phones or dumb phones and growingly popular smart phones. You can narrow this down to performance, perks and price however, gradually these lines that separate these differences are blurring and I’m all for it! On Thursday Samsung introduced two new devices, the Gravity SMART and the Exhibit 4G both of which pack super powers and are priced less than 100 bucks, you know after the whole contract thing. But let’s take a look at these “mid-range” smart phones to get a better idea as to what I’m talking about.
The Samsung Gravity SMART is the Androidification of the uber popular feature line the Gravity. This Samsung Gravity SMART is the first Gravity device running the Android operating system and essentially puts itself in the mid range smart phone category. The Samsung Gravity SMART packs an 800 MHz processor behind its 3.2 inch touch screen and can handle just about anything you throw at it. The Samsung Gravity SMART uses Android version 2.2 and sports a 3 megapixel camera with digital zoom, led flash and video recording capabilities. You can also expect all the standards that come along with a smart phone of the day, including, Bluetooth, WI-Fi, micro USB charging as well as the universal 3.5mm headset port. The Samsung Gravity SMART is one of the firsts in a new wave of smart feature phones that the world can afford but also heavily use.
The Samsung Exhibit 4G burst onto the scene with a slightly higher end specs then it running mate. The Samsung Exhibit 4G uses T-Mobile’s new HSPA+ 4G network to get super fast data speeds and runs the latest in Android version 2.3 Gingerbread. Under the hood of this beast in sheep’s clothing lye’s a 1 GHz Hummingbird processor that can handle absolutely anything. The Samsung Exhibit 4G sports a 3.7 inch AMOLED touch screen display that boasts a 480×800 pixel resolution. The Samsung Exhibit 4G also has a front facing VGA camera for all of your video conferencing needs as well as a 3 mega pixel rear facing camera that can record video as well. You can also expect all the smart phone standards as well, such as WI-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, expandable memory and a universal 3.5 mm headset jack. All in all the Samsung Exhibit 4G is an amazing new affordable smart phone device that can keep up with the higher end smart phones.
Both of these new devices will be made available through T-Mo coming this month and will be priced under one hundred bucks on a new contract. These new devices surely help blur the line between smart phone and dumb or feature phones and I’m all for it. Soon the similar specs will be the standard and the idea of a non smart phone will be laughable. You with me on that? Do these new devices interest you?
