A Glimpse Of The Future: 12 Mobile Devices From CTIA Wireless Fall 2008


Samsung used CTIO to parade out the Highnote for Sprint, a multi-media device with a strong focus on the music, offering access to the Sprint Music Store.

The Highnote features a "dual slider" design, meaning it slides up to use the keyboard, and down to reveal stereo speakers.

The Highnote features a 2 megapixel camera, a full-color display, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and operates on Sprint's EV-Do 3G network. The mobile phone also supports Sprint TV, messaging, email and Sprint's newly-launched One Click interface and an organizer. The Highnote offers Bluetooth support, a Web browser, speaker-independent voice dialing and support for Microsoft Live Search.

The Highnote, available in blue or red, measures 4 inches by 1.9 inches by 0.6 inches. It is expected to be available in October for $99 with a service contract.
