Samsung Gets Highlights

Yesterday, the Samsung Highlight hit shelves. A slim and curvy number, the Highlight SGH-t749 is a smartphone with a full touchscreen and style for days. With it's rubberized casing, the Highlight is easy on the hands. With vibrant colors like the bright red and orange "Fire" and the cool turquoise "Ice," the phone is seriously easy on the eyes.


In lieu of a QWERTY keypad, the Highlight has a QWERTY touchscreen that can be accessed much like the iPhone. It also has a number of customizable widgets, allowing quick and easy access to some of the user's favorite apps. The screen is has a respectable 240 x 400 pixel resolution which comes in handy when you're cruising the web on the full size web browser.

The Highlight also has messaging out the wazoo with texting, instant messaging, email, video and picture messaging. To make sure you have some decent picture and video to share with friends and family, the phone comes equipped with a 3.0 megapixel camera with a 3x digital zoom that doubles as a camcorder.

Keeping in accord with the majority of phones on the market, the Highlight also plays music. The phone has a memory slot that supports microSD cards up to 16GB so you'll never have to worry about not having enough space for all your favorite tunes.

If your hands are itching to touch the Samsung Highlight, it's currently retailing at $150 with T-Mobile with a $50 mail-in rebate -- provided you sign up for a contract. Not a bad deal for an entry-level smartphone with a touchscreen.
