Today Samsung published some information on the SGH-a877 Impression. This sideways slider has a 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen and a full, physical QWERTY keyboard with four rows. Samsung confirms that the a877 has an accelerometer and will auto-rotate when turned on its side. FCC documents confirm that the a877 will have at least dual-band GSM/EDGE/WCDMA and Bluetooth radios on board. No other information was available, but the a877 model name and carrier branding suggest that it will be offered by AT&T.
Oh boy does it have a horrible keyboard in my opinion. Played with it for about 30 minutes at ATT store today, it was already on the shelf. Really wanted to like it. Was ready to switch carriers to get this phone. Keys are so flat and flush. Thought they could have done better.
they will put their crappy software on it and again ruin a perfectly good device... at&t knows mobile email is a joke but they are to stupid to do anything about it. they have great devices but they neuter them to the point that they aren't worth what at&t charges for them... hopefully apple won't agree to letting them put their crapware on the new iphone... it's bad when you can't even delete a demo game because at&t wants you to buy it that bad...

and I know cause I've already had the pleasure of playing with this phone. I can't think of another phone that has better Video Playback quality than this device, even when compared to the iPhone. Truth is it works alot like an Eternity, and I am a fan of the Eternity. The cost will be at the $200 price which makes it a straight competitor to the iPhone, and as a person on an earlier thread wrote, "the iPhone isn't for everybody" and that couldn't be more true. Great job to Samsung and this will be a great addition to the AT&T lineup.
