Don't confuse the A970 (new) with the A790 (existing GSM/CDMA phone).

The new A970 I held tonight had a Get It Now logo on the d-pad, so it's almost certainly headed for Verizon.

I don't think so.

I did ask (of course ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), and the answer was no, but the Samsung guy I asked wasn't 100% sure.

How did you get to hold it? How did you like it?

Rich,

Any Feedback about the phone. How Was the Graphics, Sound and Camera Quality. Does it have a good speakerphone. I was told it even was able to record up to 1 hr of Video.

There wasn't a working a A970 at CTIA, at least that I was able to locate. The one I held was supposedly a real prototype (not a dummy mock-up), and it did feel like the real deal, but it would not turn on (oh believe me I tried ๐Ÿ˜‰ .)

So I can't answer any of those questions. Sorry - I certainly wish I could! โ˜น๏ธ

How big is the phone, would you say? A670-sized? Larger? Smaller?

This phone could save the Verizon-markrogo relationship if small enough.

Oh, much larger than the A670 - that was a small one.

You're going to love this, though - I actually broke out my calipers and measured it. ๐Ÿ˜ The size is:

95 x 51.5 x 25.5 mm

That includes the camera bulge on the left near the hinge. I also measured below the camera bulge, and got:

95 x 47 x 25.5 mm

So there you go! ๐Ÿ™‚

As for how it feels, I'd say it feels a bit big, but still smaller than the SPH-A800 or LG VX-8000. But that's just from memory holding each phone at different times... totally unscientific. I could be wrong.

Is the internal screen the same size as the vx8000?

Rich, thanks for the size info.

I'm not even a little interested anymore.

And I'm very confused that the mfrs. don't recognize that some of us got very spoiled by their small phones and would like new ones in that category.

Even the A670 is large by the standards of phones I've carried over the past 5 years!

Of course, somehow in Japan they do get this, so maybe the fault is with US carriers.

I read that the A970 will be available to both Sprint and Verizon. For Sprint it will be called the MM-A940
