Samsung A717 for Cingular

Samsung is gearing up to launch a GSM version of the popular M610 clamshell phone for Cingular customers. While in many senses identical to the CDMA version already in use by Sprint, the new edition -- named the A717 -- will swap the EVDO broadband access of the M610 for a much faster HSDPA connection. Legacy EDGE support is expected as well. The directional pad will also undergo a change to the ring-like control used by the BlackJack. Cingular should carry the phone by mid-2007 under its impending return to the AT&T name. Pricing should compare closely with Sprint's $180 when combined with a two-year service plan.
