Samsung A657 at ATT

AT&T in a low-key addition on Friday added the Samsung A657 to its mix of push-to-talk phones. The candybar has a rubberized shell and is hardened to US military-spec standards for shock, moisture, temperature and other factors. It also has its own built-in flashlight as a backup for those working in dark conditions.

While it goes without a camera for security's sake, the A657 is relatively well-featured for its class with 3G data, Bluetooth with stereo audio, GPS mapping and a microSDHC slot that accepts cards up to 8GB. AT&T is also clear that the phone is just as suitable for personal use and has access to the carrier's music downloads and streaming video as well as locally-stored media.

The handset is already available to order for business users, though pricing isn't visibly published. If and when it will be widely available through regular AT&T stores also hasn't been confirmed.
