Just in time for the big shopping weekend, Samsung gives us its newest cell phone for AT&T, the Samsung SGH-A747. Though we've been drowning in Samsung handsets as of late, this one caught our eye. Its thin flip phone design may be nothing new but inside the SGH-A747 promises a new feature. It will be the first phone to support AT&T's new wireless music download service . Announced at CTIA last month, the service will allow AT&T customers to purchase and download music tracks over the air through Napster Mobile. It's a welcome addition as it truly puts AT&T Mobile on par with Verizon's V Cast Music and the Sprint Music Store.

Other features include Bluetooth, a speakerphone, quadband world phone support, a 2-megapixel camera, basic organizer applications, and support for AT&T's Video Share application. The SGH-A747, which is also called the SLM (please don't tell me that Samsung is starting to drop vowels), will be available this Friday, November 23. It's $149.99 with a two-year contract.
