Samsung Exhibit for T-Mobile Turns Two
T-Mobile and Samsung today announced the Samsung Exhibit II 4G.

The screen is also slightly larger, at 3.7 inches compared to 3.5 for the original model. T-Mobile is using the phone to push its no-contract plans, with the phone being available first at Wal-Mart tomorrow with only a no-contract option. A week later on November 2, the phone will go sale elsewhere and with a two-year contract option. Features of the phone include a 1 GHz processor, 3-megapixel main camera, front camera for video chat, and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The Exhibit II will sell for $200 without contract. With two-year contract, the phone will sell for $80, or $30 after $50 mail-in rebate.
