Ever since December when Captain Blurrycam struck the 8 megapixel beast that is the Samsung Memoir and provided the first solid evidence that it was US-bound, T-Mobile customers have been eagerly anticipating its arrival. And why wouldn’t they? A full touchscreen, an 8 megapixel camera with auto focus, 16x digital zoom, dual LED flash and 30 fps video recording, alongside a bevy of other camera-centric specs make this one hell of a feature phone for T-Mobile. Word now is that the release date may have been pushed back a bit from the date we scooped back in December, but the good news is that we now have a possible price point – $299.99 with a 2-year contract, pretty steep. We’ve already seen changes made to the release schedule and it’s likely that since the Curve 8900 was pushed up, other handsets would be pushed back. We admit we’re a tad sketched out by the fact that the poster seems very skeptical as to the document’s authenticity, but maybe it’s the mention of a target audience in the 30 – 45 year-old range that has him uneasy. While that does seems a bit silly, don’t put it past a carrier to issue internal documents with expectations like that. As always, only time will tell. Who’s excited?
