Samsung announced a new cell phone Tuesday that appears to take aim at the recently announced LG Lotus for Sprint and the Verizon Wireless Blitz. The Samsung Propel SGH-A767, which is bound for AT&T later this month, is a slider phone with a square shape that hides a full QWERTY keyboard. This isn't a true smartphone, so there's no Outlook Exchange support, but you can text and IM on the Propel to your heart's content. Web-based POP3 e-mail support will be available as well.

Other features on the 3G phone include AT&T Navigator, Cellular Video, AT&T Video Share, AT&T Mobile Music, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a speakerphone, Bluetooth and personal organizer applications.

The Propel will be available in three color options--blue, green, red, and white with red trimmings--and it will cost you $79.99 after a two-year agreement and mail-in rebate.
