Midrange Samsung SGH-i547 slides through FCC on its way to AT&T

Yet another midrange Sammy device is making its way through FCC approval towards consumers – this one appears to be headed to AT&T, and is rocking quad LTE bands that may allow it to achieve some degree of global LTE roaming. Despite the impressive connectivity options, the SGH-i547 looks to otherwise be a standard mid-range offering.
Those “good enough” features will include an 800 x 480 pixel screen (presumably one substantially smaller than the 4.8 incher on the Galaxy S III), Bluetooth 4.0, and built-in NFC. No word yet on CPU or memory, but if Motorola’s Atrix HD has set the standard we can expect some sort of dual-core CPU and maybe even a gigabyte of RAM.
Time will tell…and presumably sooner rather than later, with FCC approval already secured. For those of you looking for more options for an inexpensive Android phone for AT&T, it looks like more choices are coming in the near future.
^lame...the atrix hd is a better overall choice than the galaxy s3 and the one x...
better price for same specs and also a better design with the kevlar backing... the only thing the galaxy has over the atrix is bigger battery in which i do applause them for
i know guy, i like the Atrix HD and i completely agree with you.
what i meant was that the Atrix HD hasn't been out long enough for any company to create any kind of counter offer for it yet. they'd need more time than this.
True, but I dont see samsung making a phone this well with a price that is even better. Nor do i see HTC ,the only company that probably would do that would be LG and thats a maybe because why would they when they already have the 4x HD..... The Spectrum 2? It would be a start lol...... O and if you think maybe Sony would.....Well we all know the answer to that question. Sony is still making S3 chips :(
