Samsung Magnet at AT&T

Samsung's low-cost Magnet QWERTY handset is now available for purchase via wireless provider AT&T. First seen at the end of March before its debut at CTIA in April, the phone has a VGA camera with 4x zoom, a WAP browser and Bluetooth capability. Its 2.2-inch display sports a 176x220 resolution. The feature set is deliberately basic to keep the costs down for those primarily interested in e-mail, IM and text.

The quad-band GSM handset uses EDGE network for data access. There is 64MB of internal memory but no external memory card slot for expansion. With a two-year contract and a $30 mail-in rebate, the Magnet is priced at just $20 and makes price its selling point as a result. Contract-free, it costs $200.
