Verizon Wireless today officially launched the previously-rumored Samsung A990, the country's first camera phone with 3.2 megapixel resolution. Advanced camera capabilities include an auto-focus lens, flash, video capture up to one hour, business card reader, viewing via TV output, and printing via PictBridge or Bluetooth. A twisting display folds back to serve as a large viewfinder in camera mode. The high-end CDMA clamshell phone also supports EVDO high-speed data, including Verizon's VCast and VCast Music services. Other advanced features of the phone include a microSD memory card slot, Bluetooth, and location API to support GPS-based navigation services. The A990 is available today online for $350 after rebates, with a two-year contract. It will be available in stores on July 24.
