Samsung A717 details

AT&T has published an internal guide (seen right and below) to the upcoming A717 by Samsung, and in so doing, changed what we know about the phone. While it is indeed abandoning EVDO for UMTS, it is not making the leap to HSDPA, which would have produced speeds of about 3.6Mbps. The front-facing camera will nevertheless be usable with Video Share, which may not be two-way streaming, but still requires substantial bandwidth. AT&T Music and Cellular Video options will be available as on many other phones. The A717 is due at AT&T/Cingular around the middle of the year. [via Boy Genius Report]
