Sprint went ahead and formally announced the Samsung Moment, an Android OS phone powered by an 800 MHz processor and featuring a side-sliding QWERTY board and 3.2" AMOLED touchscreen. Moment will be available from Sprint November 1st for $179.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 rebate.
And yes, Moment will support Pac-Man. Seriously, it was in the media kit. I love Pac-Man. Not as much as Galaga, but still.
