AT&T announces two new Samsung 3G phones, which are the slimmest in AT&T's 3G handset portfolio.
The Samsung SGH-a717 (photo) is a clamshell phone with 2MP camera, Bluetooth, microSD slot, HSDPA and Quad-badn GSM.
The phones will also support AT&T's forthcoming Video Share service, launching this summer. Video Share allows users to add a live, one-way video stream to a standard voice call, allowing the called party to view what the caller is seeing during a voice call. Both customers must be in an area served by the company's 3G network and have a Video Share-enabled phone. The SGH-a717 is available June 4 through select AT&T retail locations, formerly Cingular Wireless.
The SGH-a727 will be available soon. The a717's and a727's suggested retail price is $149.99 and $99.99 respectively, after a two-year contract activation and a $50 mail-in rebate.
