Samsung Jack at ATT
AT&T today said it had picked up the spiritual successor to the BlackJack and BlackJack II. Now simply called the Jack, the new QWERTY smartphone upgrades to a 3.2-megapixel camera and carries a significantly larger 256MB of RAM to better juggle tasks. It runs Windows Mobile 6.1 out of the box and, like most modern smartphones, has 3G, assisted GPS and Wi-Fi as standard features. A microSDHC slot supports up to 16GB of storage.
On AT&T's network, the phone supports AT&T Navigator for mapping as well as video streaming and XM Radio Mobile music streaming. The Jack ships on May 19th and should start at a significantly lower price than past BlackJacks, starting at $100 when linked to a two-year contract with both voice and data.
