Jun 09 2005 - 08:08 PM ET | Samsung
The sleek Samsung SCH-A970 has been approved by the FCC (ID A3LSCHA970) The Samsing A970's feature set is impressive: * EV-DO high-speed data * 2 megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom * Bluetooth * Swiveling display with clamshell design * Advanced voice recognition * MP3 player with playback buttons on front of the unit * Video messaging While a carrier hasn't been named, since the handset is CDMA there are two likely players: Verizon Wireless and Sprint PCS. Early spec sheets pointed to a second quarter launch, which was obviously over ambitious. MobileTracker posted a short video of the Samsung A970 in action at CTIA Wireless 2005. [via PhoneArena]
