Samsung Access to support AT&T Mobile TV

The Samsung Access will be the first device to support AT&T Mobile TV.

We once thought the LG Vu would be the first device to carry AT&T's MediaFLO-powered mobile TV service, but as it turns out, it's not the only one to share the limelight. Following the news of AT&T's May launch of AT&T Mobile TV, Samsung put out a press release about the Samsung Access, which will be one of two devices to launch with the service. Check out our Samsung Access slide show to see it in all its glory.

The candy-bar-style phone is a lot slimmer than the Vu, plus it has a 2.3-inch landscape display compared with the Vu's expansive wide screen. It has a one-touch button directly to AT&T Mobile TV, which will feature content from partners like CBS, Comedy Central, ESPN, as well as two exclusive channels to be announced soon.

Of course, the Access is also a 3G capable device, meaning it's compatible with the rest of AT&T's broadband services like AT&T's Video Share and AT&T Mobile Music. Other features include stereo Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, a 1.3-megapixel camera, multimedia messaging, e-mail, and more. It also has quad-band GSM support. Pricing is not yet known, but it'll be available in May.
