Google Maps gives you turn-by-turn GPS directions. You'll get a Gmail email account. Google Search lets you type or speak your query. With Google Contacts, all your friends' info is synced to your phone.

The Samsung Dart weighs 3.8 ounces and measures 4.1 x 2.4 x 0.5 inches. Its 1200 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4 hours of talk time, and up to 288 hours (12 days) of standby time.
