Samsung's late bloomer

Cingular finally introduces the Samsung SGH-X507

Cingular Wireless

Samsung quietly introduced the Samsung SGH-X507, a mostly basic model we thought had become lost in the cell phone wilderness. Though the SGH-X507 first appeared on Cingular's radar screen last spring, the carrier took its time in formally introducing the phone. In fact, by late summer when we still hadn't seen SGH-X507, we began to dig a plot for it in our mobile graveyard. But just as we were about to hold services, Cingular brought it back to life.

Behind a basic black and gray flip phone design is a simple feature set meant for making calls. Highlights include quad-band world phone support, POP3 e-mail, a speakerphone, and compatibility for the carrier's EDGE network. Multimedia messaging is onboard as well but there is no camera. You can't beat the price as the SGH-X507 is free with service.
