Never one to rest on its laurels, Samsung has released yet another phone with a slim slider design. AT&T's Samsung SGH-A777 is the latest in the company's Boeing series, as we've come to call it. It started with the A707 and then proceeded to roll out the A717, the A727, the A737, the A747, and the A767, all for AT&T. Yes, the company skipped over the A757 but we still like the analogy. The only trouble is that the phones don't resemble the corresponding airplanes in any way. If that were true, then the A747 and the A777 would be the coolest phones ever.
The SGH-A777 (we're guessing that it replaces the old Samsung SGH-P777) offers a solid midrange feature set with a 1.3-megapixel camera, a music player, messaging and POP3 e-mail, GPS with support for AT&T Navigator, voice dialing and commands, Bluetooth, and a speakerphone. It is a quad-band world phone and the 3G support brings AT&T Mobile Music. The handset comes in red and blue but the features are the same on both models. You can get it for $79 with service and a mail-in rebate.
