Samsung Eternity II And Flight II Arrive On AT&T

Two phones that have been rumored about for some time now are finally official on AT&T. Samsung Mobile is contributing two new phones to the dwindling featurephone market, which should suit tweens who spend more time texting than surfing the Web on their mobile browser. The Eternity II and Flight II are second editions, obviously, so these aren't totally new in terms of design.


The Eternity II is a full touchscreen device, and because it supports AT&T Mobile TV, you'll be paying a pretty penny per month in order to have access. It features a 3" screen, loads of AT&T apps, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, GPS functionality, a 2MP camera/camcorder and expandable memory up to 32GB. The Flight II is also a full touchscreen device, though it only supports 16GB of memory. Both phones will be available later this week, but AT&T isn't disclosing pricing yet. We're guessing both will sell for under $100 on contract, though.
