Nokia 9300 and Samsung D307 - new phones from Cingular
Nokia 9300 and Samsung SGH-D307 would soon be available from Cingular. The 9300 from Nokia was announced yesterday by Cingular, while the SGH-D307 from Samsung is still not officially announced, but some pictures of it with the Cingular logo leaked on the internet.
Nokia 9300 is a clamshell phone operating on the Series 80 interface over Symbian OS. The business oriented phone supports large TFT display, EDGE/GRPS data, Bluetooth, Infrared port, MMC card slot, Java MIDP 2.0, HTML browser, music player and full QWERTY keyboard. The 9300 is the first non-RIM device featuring BlackBerry Connect software.
Cingular will offer the 9300 staring in November for $299.99 with a two-year contract, after $50 mail-in rebate.
The other phone that should be available from Cingular is the SGH-D307 from Samsung. It is a tri-band GSM phone, featuring the high-speed EDGE. In the clamshell form-factor design, it sports dual-hinge, which allows the display to be set in normal or landscape position for use as a normal clamshell phone, or as a messaging device in conjuction with its full QWERTY keyboard.
Cingular haven't officially announced Samsung SGH-D307, yet, but we expect it would be available because of some pictures of the D307 with the Cingular logo on it. Since the D307 scored the FCC approval there is no problem to be offered from Cingular.
