Samsung SLM at ATT

AT&T began its week by introducing the Samsung SLM. Also known as the A747, the clamshell joins the A737 and other Samsung 3G phones at the carrier but adds new features unique to the A-series. The device is the first to explicitly support Napster Mobile and lets users download tracks directly over HSPA. The extra speed is also crucial for the phone's swiveling 2-megapixel camera, AT&T says. Users can either point the camera at themselves to show friends during a one-way video call on AT&T's Video Share service or to point outwards to record videos and 2-megapixel still shots for uploading or media messaging.

The handset is also designed for relatively convenient music use with an externally accessible microSD slot, stereo Bluetooth, and a 3.5mm adapter to use the phone with quality earphones rather than the stock earbuds. In AT&T trim, the SLM comes with a 512MB microSD card to get the user started and should be priced initially at $150 after factoring in a two-year contract and a rebate. It will ship first the day after Thanksgiving (November 23rd) in a brown metallic shell and will be supported by a blue version before the end of the year.
