Samsung Mythic And Flight Phones Soar Over To AT&T

It seems like the Droid has been receiving all the attention of late, but for those looking for something a bit simpler, AT&T has two new options from Samsung Mobile. Up first, the Mythic is delivering a 3.3" full touch screen display, Samsung's own TouchWiz internet, one-touch access to features including AT&T Mobile TV and social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace, and the ability to watch CBS Mobile, CNBC, CNN Mobile, COMEDY CENTRAL, ESPN Mobile TV, FOX Mobile, FOX News, MSNBC, MTV, NBC 2Go, Nickelodeon and the movie channel Crackle right on the phone. Granted, you'll be paying $9.99 per month (down from $15) for the mobile TV service, but who knows--maybe it's worth it if you spend a lot of time on the train.

Additional key features and specifications of the Mythic include:

  • One-finger Touch and Finger Zoom
  • Full HTML Web browser
  • Virtual full QWERTY keyboard
  • 3.2 megapixel camera
  • Advanced Messaging capabilities
    • AT&T Mobile E-mail
    • SMS and MMS
    • Instant Messenger
  • AT&T Navigator (requires a separate subscription)
  • AT&T Mobile Music with Napster Mobile® and eMusicTM Mobile
  • Stereo Bluetooth™ technology
  • Dimensions: 4.49” x 2.06” x .5”
  • Weight: 3.8 oz


Next, there's the Samsung Flight, which is classified as a messaging device with a vertical sliding form factor that opens to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard underneath. It'll ship in red and silver with one-touch access to functions like shortcuts, favorites and messaging, including SMS and MMS, Instant Messaging and Mobile E-mail.

Additional key features of the Flight include:

  • Social Networking with AT&T Social Net
  • 2.0 megapixel camera
  • Full HTML Web browser
  • AT&T Navigator compatible
  • AT&T Mobile Music with Napster Mobile® and eMusicTM Mobile
  • AT&T Video Share
  • Stereo Bluetooth™ technology
  • Dimensions: 4.17” x 2.2” x 0.5”

Both phones are available for the taking today, with the Mythic going for $199.99 after mail-in rebate and the Flight for $99.99 after mail-in rebate.

When I try to type on ANY of these little, tiny, shrimp keyboards my thumbs feel like Watermelons. The situation is like Sammy Hagar not being able to drive 55.
