Samsung a637 now at AT&T
The SGH-a637, an entry-level handset from Samsung, is now available from AT&T. The quad-band phone is one of AT&T's less expensive 3G devices but carries one-way video calls using AT&T's Video Share service. The integrated 1.3-megapixel camera supports video capture and stores either to the integrated 51MB of memory or to a microSD card. Assisted GPS functionality allows users to access the AT&T Navigator service on the phone's relatively small 1.9-inch LCD.
The candybar-shaped handset features Bluetooth A2DP for a wireless connection to stereo handsets and other compatible devices. POP3 and web-based email is supported as well. The Samsung SGH-a637 should be available now and is priced at $50 with a two-year contract and mail-in rebate.
