First Look: Samsung SGH-a107 GoPhone (AT&T)

1:25 /

The Samsung SGH-a107 makes for a decent entry-level phone for the prepaid crowd, but you can get a better device elsewhere for cheaper.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Nicole: I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the Samsung A107 for AT&T Wireless. This phone is available via AT&T Go Phone which is AT&T's prepaid network. As you can see here the Samsung A107 is as basic as phones go, there's no camera, there's no external display, there's not even Bluetooth on here. The phone is very nice and compact and light-weight and on the front there's a nice silver front finish. On the side here you get the charger jack. Flip it open you get a very simple 1.4 inch display here. Not the brightest in the world but it's okay for a basic phone like this. On the new [inaudible] you get the navigation array, you get 2 soft keys, the square toggle with the middle wireless web browser shortcut, you also get the send key, the clear key as well as the end power keys. The number keypad is pretty roomy. As you can see it was easy to text and dial by feel. As you might expect the phone's features are fairly basic. You do get access to Media Net, which is AT&T's wireless store there. You also get access to texting multi-media messaging and a speaker phone but that's about it. The Samsung A107 is available for around $20.00 without a contract. I'm Nicole Lee and this has been the first look at the Samsung A107. ^E00:01:20
