When Samsung introduces a cell phone, usually we can say that we've seen it somewhere before. And that's definitely the case with the new Samsung Solstice for AT&T.

Also called the SGH-A887, the Solstice sports a touch-screen design with few physical controls. It shows characteristics of several previous Samsung models, but its closest relative is probably T-Mobile's recent Samsung Highlight.

Features include a 2-megapixel camera with video recording, a music players, a speakerphone, a personal organizer, stereo Bluetooth, an external memory card slot, and a virtual QWERTY keyboard. It also offers Samsung's TouchWiz interface.

The Solstice will go on sale in August for $100 with a service contract.
