Samsung Exhibit 4G
Qik today announced an update to its video chatting client for T-Mobile Android devices. The most significant change to the software is enhanced privacy controls. Users will now be able to block anonymous video callers, and all videos recorded will be set to private by default. This lets users specify which videos their contacts are able to see. Qik for T-Mobile is available to the myTouch 4G, Galaxy Tab, Dell Streak 7, Vibrant 4G, Sidekick 4G, G2x, Sensation 4G, and Samsung Exhibit 4G.
T-Mobile today announced the availability of a new caller ID service for its mobile customers. The service works similar to that of standard wireline caller ID, and can access the name, city, and state behind any phone number, including those that previously showed as "unknown." The service will also allow customers to add this information to their contact database with a single click. The service is first being launched on the Samsung Exhibit 4G and will soon follow on the HTC myTouch 4G Slide. It will be made available to other handsets over time. T-Mobile customers can trial the service for 10 days, after which it will cost $3.99 per month.
The Samsung Exhibit 4G for T-Mobile is a curious phone. In an age where most Android phones are either cheap, messaging-oriented, or top-end flagship models, the Exhibit carves out its own space in the middle ground, including select advanced features while keeping a low price point. We spent a little time with it. Read on for our first impressions.
