the a790 is sprints!!!

i hope...... Razz
It's an SCH branded Samsung (BREW). VerizonSad((
...
Don't confuse the A970 (new) with the A790 (existing GSM/CDMA phone).

The new A970 I held tonight had a Get It Now logo on the d-pad, so it's almost certainly headed for Verizon.
...
I read that the A970 will be available to both Sprint and Verizon. For Sprint it will be called the MM-A940

a970 is Verizon Phone Due Out May '05 (Confirmed)

Verizon Verizon Verizon

I have a connection at verizon who is upper managment. I have known about this phone for a month now. Verizon owns the rights to it and as of now have scheduled its release in May '05. It will be their first 2.0 megapixel camera with VCAST and Bluetooth as well as a many other features.
hate to break this to ya but verizon puts out phones when they want, so the is NEVER a confirmed date with verizon...If it comes out Awesome for verizon customers..if it dont then...well thats what we all thought would happen.
So tell us-- How much is she gonna run us? I got the check book right here!
...
There is NO way this phone will be avail in May. Maybe May '06! But on the realistic side, I'd say its fair to place this phone in a Q4 release, you know, right before thanksgiving.

A970 looks like SCH-200

i think this A970 is definitely going to be released with Verizon. The phone looks exactly same as the SCH-200 which was released in Korea last year. The really cool thing about SCH-200 is that it has TV-OUT function meaning you can watch the photo or video directly from TV by using TV-OUT cable. I believe this phone will also have 2X optical zoom and auto focus. I have a LG VX8000 now. I can't wait to have this phone Smile

Samsung A970 Graphics/Pics Quality???

This question is going out to those people who either went to CTIA or has had the opportunity to Test out the phone. How does the Graphics look(clean or choppy) and Camera quality. From What I have been told it can record up to 1 hr video as well. Finally what about the sound quality? Hopefully Phonescoop will have specs online soon

The only A970 models at CTIA do not have working batteries.

For the general public, they're only visible under glass, but I've been able to play with one a few times already. You can bet I tried to turn it on, but no dice... Sad

There is no deal. The a890 is already out for Verizon. You read something wrong.
What can I say - Engadget got it wrong. We told them so they could correct it...

The A890 is the EV-DO phone that Verizon is already selling...

a570: Sprint or Verizon?

a570: Sprint or Verizon?
We're not talking about the A(FIVE)70. We're talking about the Samsung A(NINE)70. But it's rumored that Verizon's got it. I know, I know! I'm a (sad) Sprint customer too ! Crying or Very sad But I'll definitely consider switching once this phone comes out! No loya...

The SCH-A570 is for Verizon. It turns out that's the same phone as the A720. When it was shown off at CES, it was called the SCH-A720. (Check out the CES article on this site for more info and photos.) It was simply renamed A570 to better reflect wher...

Will Bluetooth be crippled like Motorola v710 (and possibly E815)??

Does anyone think the bluetooth capabilites will be crippled like on the Motorola phones for Verizon? Will Samsung object to Verizon removing some of the bluetooth features due to the recent lawsuit?

Why does VZW takes forever to release phone?

Why do they take so long to release phones. Quality control you say? thats bull if you asked me. The service is great but after all that testing the phones still have glitches. example T720,v710,PTT.
