Another Entry Level 3G Phone For Cingular On Horizon

The FCC today approved the Samsung SGH-A617. This clamshell phone looks like the C417 for Cingular but with slightly more angular lines and 3G. Although the model number, as well as the fact that it has quad-band GSM/EDGE and 850/1900 WCDMA all point to a launch on Cingular's network, the manual included in the filing does not corroborate this. The A617 also features Bluetooth, a camera and a large external display.

Waiting to Stink...

This looks like another one of those Samsung phones that's just not going to make it. Sorta like the 347. This line of phones just isn't durable and lack high demand features like the OBEX bluetooth profiles. I'm not amazed.

are we sure this phone is still comming? It was approved back in November and has yet to be seen on any Samsung nomenclature (even the unnanounced a517 and a737 are).
What do you mean? Confused

Are you sure you know what "nomenclature" means? Wink
