Samsung A737 at ATT
AT&T began Tuesday by introducing the A737. The new phone adapts the basic philosophy of the A717 and A727 flip and candybar phones to a slider form, including the HSPA access that provides one-way video streaming over Video Share as well as AT&T's music download services from eMusic and Napster. A 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth with stereo audio support, and microSD card support up to 4GB help the device live up to its expectations as a media device.
In contrast to the more conservative A-series models, the A737 comes in multiple color accents: the black body is bordered by blue, lime, or orange trim around the edges and the central control pad. AT&T claims the phone should be available today for $50 after a two-year contract and rebate or $190 for a contract-free device.
