Samsung - phone already available from major US carriers

Samsung's take on the Moto's RAZR success was the A900 codenamed Blade. The phone is almost the same thickness (actually thinness) as the RAZR, but slightly narrower. Unlike the original RAZR, the A900 is for CDMA networks and was released by Sprint in early December. The internal screen is QVGA with 262k colors. Unlike the RAZR which has a CSTN external LCD with 4096 colors, Samsung A900 actually sports TFT with 65k. EVDO high speed data, 1.3 mega pixel camera and Bluetooth make the A900 all around well equipped hot seller.

Samsung A920 was released by Sprint around the same time as the A900. It is more multimedia oriented with dedicated external music-control keys. EVDO, 1.3 mega pixel camera and Bluetooth are part of its features. The A950 is the Verizon's version.

Samsung A920 Specs

Samsung A940 is the Sprint's version of the Verizon's A970 – the fist US model with 2 mega pixel camera and optical zoom. The A940's display can be twisted 90 degrees in both directions, so you can hold the phone as a camcorder. We have seen many phones with zoom, but most of them are with so called Digital Zoom which when used, worsens the picture quality. On the other hand, its optical counterpart offers real zoom without quality sacrifices. The problem with it is that it requires lens movement which usually translates in bulkier devices. Samsung has solved this problem by embedding the camera inside the flip's hinge. Main features include EVDO, Bluetooth and speaker-independent voice dialing.

Moving over to GSM, the T809 is a cute slider released recently from T-Mobile. The quad-band EDGE device features QVGA display, Bluetooth and microSD memory expansion. The camera is 1.3 mega pixels.
