Samsung A437 at ATT
Releasing its first new handset in the aftermath of Apple's high-profile launch, AT&T has quietly launched the Samsung A437. The Korea-made handset touches on all the core features expected from modern cellphones without costly extras. Users can connect online using EDGE access or use a wireless headset through Bluetooth; a VGA camera provides basic photography. Extra software is provided for instant messaging through AIM, Windows Live, or Yahoo.
Also reflecting its status, the A437 is available in multiple colors. Gold, red, and slate versions of the Samsung flip-phone can be found in AT&T's physical and online shops today for either $70 with a two-year contract or $250 as a stand-alone device without the commitment.
