This just in ?
According to an anonymous source, it looks like Samsung A877 will be launching through AT&T on March 29. If you?re in the market for a sweet messaging phone, this might be one worth waiting for.
Not too shabby for a non smartphone. The AMOLED displays Samsung was showing off on the Omnia HD at Mobile World Congress were impressive, really bright and crisp, and the A877 seems to boast the same type of screen.
The specs look great, and if they bear out, this would be a nice ?make-good? for the flop that was the AT&T Quickfire. Quickfire, another touchscreen/QWERTY messaging phone, was recently pulled from AT&T shelves because of problems with the charger overheating.
Thanks to the ?Deep Throat? who sent this in. Bear in mind that this tipster has no track record with us, but the pics and specs sure look pretty good, no?
EDITED TO INCLUDE:
Aaron's earlier post, mentioning a "Jackfrost" model coming out on AT&T on the 29th, might lead one to believe that the A877 is indeed this unnamed phone. Says Aaron: "I think it's certainly solid enough that we could make the prediction."
Remember, you heard it here first.
