Samsung C417 at Cingular

Samsung has gained a greater foothold in North America through its A900 designer phone. Nevertheless, many potential buyers have been dissuaded by the relatively upscale pricing on the Korean maker's flagship. US carrier Cingular made Samsung's design more accessible today by carrying the C417, a low-cost phone that still carries many of the features of a more advanced model. At 0.65 inches thick when closed, the handset is still relatively thin compared to many budget phones. It sports a quad-band GSM radio that adds roaming support for some Asian and European networks. Bluetooth and a VGA camera are also standard. Cingular is asking $80 for the C417 with a two-year contract and before special discounts - a price within considerably easier reach than that of the premium A900.
