Samsung a777 launches
A part of a recent leak, the Samsung a777 has surfaced on AT&T's website without a formal announcement. The quad-band slider phone includes 3G over the carrier's network as well as a 1.3-megapixel camera with 3X digital zoom and support for Bluetooth with stereo audio. An MP3 player app and microSD storage handle media playback.
In AT&T trim, Samsung's phone supports Music ID for naming tracks as well as Mobile Music and Napster Mobile for downloading songs. The handset can also act as a navigation device by way of AT&T's Navigator service and the device's assisted GPS.
The Samsung a777 is available now and priced at about $80 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. Blue and red are available now, but green and orange are expected to appear on AT&T's web store soon.
