Samsung A517, T539 in US
Two new Samsung cellphones are said to be US-bound. The first is the A517, headed to AT&T, and notable mainly for having UMTS broadband; it also has a 1.3-megapixel camera though, as well as a microSD slot, and touch-sensitive controls on the top exterior.
The T539 meanwhile is headed to T-Mobile, but instead of using touch-sensitive controls, it has a ring-shaped direction pad, circled in green illumination. Other features are comparatively limited, as while it also has a 1.3-megapixel camera and music playback, it is merely a quad-band GSM phone and there is no mention of external storage. Prices and release dates remain unknown. [via Engadget]
