AT&T wields BlackJack II

Confirming a leak from earlier this month, AT&T has officially announced that it will adopt the BlackJack II by Samsung. The QWERTY smartphone features a 2.4-inch QVGA screen and a built-in GPS receiver, with support for navigation software by the likes of TeleNav. Also present are a two-megapixel camera and tri-band HSDPA, the latter enabling access to AT&T's live Video Share service, as well as streaming television clips through CV. The phone runs on Windows Mobile 6 (with Office Mobile), and is said to have "increased" memory and battery life, though AT&T has not specified how much has been added. Bluetooth connectivity is merely described as "stereo."

The debut of the BlackJack II coincides with the Microsoft announcement of System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008, a business tool that controls access and security for Windows Mobile devices. The BlackJack II will be one of the first phones to support it, and should launch by the end of the year for $150 after a rebate and two-year contract.
