Samsung a177 – affordable QWERTY phone for AT&T
It looks like affordable messaging phones are all the rage today, and that’s why AT&T is getting ready to launch a new phone of this kind: Samsung a177.
The a177 is a QWERTY-equipped candybar which will be sold by AT&T on pre-pay, as a GoPhone handset.
And while its exact price is not known, Engadget says that the phone features GSM/EDGE connectivity, a low-end camera (possibly VGA) and some sort of stylish pattern on the back case. So it’s obviously not a smartphone, like the Samsung Propel Pro recently reviewed by us is.
This is what the Samsung a177 looks like:
No word yet on when the Samsung a177 will be available for purchase. It might come at the same time with AT&T’s new three-dollar per day GoPhone plan (thus on Monday, May 11), but we can’t be sure about that just yet.
