Samsung Korea today announced that Cingular will launch a new HSDPA clamshell. The A707 appears to be based on the Z560 - a thin, light folder launched in Europe earlier this year. In addition to HSDPA high speed data, the A707 has a 2 megapixel camera and stereo Bluetooth. The Z560 featured a QVGA and MicroSD slot, it is likely these features will also carry over to the A707 but they have not been confirmed. The A707 features Windows Media DRM and is compatible with Plays For Sure music services such as Napster and Rhapsody. It is possible Cingular will also launch a music download service with this phone as well. It also has music identification software that will find the name and artist of a song when played into the phone.
