Samsung Ultra Series Comes To AT&T

Samsung today officially announced the a717 and a727 Ultra Series handsets for AT&T (Cingular), though the manufacturer had shown both off at CES. Both phones feature quad-band GSM, dual-band HSDPA, Bluetooth, MicroSD slot and Video Sharing. The a717 is a 13mm thick folder with an internal QVGA screen, an external OLED screen and 2 Megapixel camera. The a727 is a 9mm thick candy bar with a 220 x 176 wide screen and 1.3 Megapixel camera. The a717 will launch on June 4 for $150 with a 2 year contract after a $50 rebate. The a727 will launch later for $100 after contract and rebate.
I can't believe Samsung would put out a product like this and even more disappointed that Cingular decided to sell it.
Not only that, but there was another earpiece volume issue on the phone that I purchased from Cingular.com. The volume of the call went up and down very subtlely, just enough to aggravate the hell out of me.
I ordered it June 5 through the Cingular.com website at a no committment price, it was delivered on June 6, and it was returned today, June 7th.
It's possible I got a defective device, but from now on I'm going into the store and checking out the phone before I buy.
I would apprec...
No speaker phone?
No Ultra Messenging?
No OBEX or FTP???
By the way, would you fill me in on what profile FTP is, I already know what OBEX is.
