The folks of Phonedog managed to get some quality time with Samsung Memoir T929, T-Mobile’s first 8 megapixel cameraphone and a very promising device, that will be shown at Mobile World Congress 2009. The handset looks just like a camera from the back, but more on the experience of handling it, in the video below:

Memoir uses a Xenon flash and is capable of taking widescreen photos, plus, as far as the interface goes, it features TouchWiz, with a bunch of cameraphone-specific tweaks. This UI packs quite a bunch of widgets, that can be launched from a lateral sidebar. Among them you’ll find IM, a music player, email and online photo sharing.

Samsung Memoir T929 also uses a proximity sensor, that won’t allow your face to accidentally input commands while the display is touching it. Last, we learn that Memoir is a 3G phone, without WiFi support and that it can record 720 x 480 pixels video. More on the handset, at MWC 2009.
