>> Nicole: I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the Samsung Gravity for T-Mobile. The Samsung Gravity is the latest messaging phone for T-Mobile, it has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard like this. You might recall some other phones that look exactly like this like the Samsung Rise from Sprint and the LG Rumor as well, it looks very similar to this. It's a very simple and nice 2.1 inch color display, a simple and basic menu interface and underneath it you get a very nice navigation array with the keypad keys, which is very nice and raised above the surface of the phone; this is a dedicated messaging button right here that brings up a new message or the inbox if you so choose. When you turn the phone horizontal and you slide it up you will reveal a full QWERTY keyboard and the screen will change from portrait mode to landscape mode. The QWERTY keys are also very nice and there's a nice bumpy bubble texture to them, makes it very easy to text and dial as well. On the top here you do get the charger and headset jack as well as the camera key. On the other side you get the [inaudible] Rocker MicroSD card slot. On the back is a 1.3 Megapixel camera and a self-portrait mirror. Features of the Gravity include music player, a 1.3 Megapixel camera, of course you get text messaging, multi-media messaging, email, instant messaging as well as a simple wireless Web browser, you get [inaudible] Bluetooth on here, which is very good. You also get voice dialing, otherwise there's not 3G, no GPS so it's a little bit on the lower end and it's available right now for only $50.00 from T-Mobile. My name is Nicole Lee this has been the Samsung Gravity from T-Mobile. ^M00:01:40 [ Music ]
