AT&T launches Samsung Eternity, makes us want the Omnia

It’s not quite the Samsung Omnia that folks are eagerly awaiting for, but it’s a step or two in that direction. Launched this morning for AT&T, the Samsung Eternity sports a 3.2″ touchscreen, haptic feedback for a dash of vibration with every touch, an accelerometer, a 3.0 megapixel camera, and all that good ol’ 3G connectivity.

While it may look the same up front due to the TouchWiz UI, the inch-for-inch match with the Omnia’s 3.2″ touchscreen, and the surprisingly similar rear casing, the Omnia it is not. Where as the Omnia is running WinMo 6.1, this one’ proprietary OS all the way down. While some might see the lack of WinMo as a benefit, most would see the absence of WiFi as a disappointment. Regardless – for $149.99 after contract and rebate, you still get some pretty solid bang for your buck.
