AT&T Unleashes Samsung Propel Pro, Impression

propel-pro_2_smallAw look the Samsung Propel is all grown up. The new silver and chrome Propel Pro is a Windows Mobile 6.1 version of the original feature phone, and it sports the same compact slider design, which hides the full QWERTY keyboard. The hinge on the original Propel offered a smooth and sturdy slider design, so if it’s just as sturdy on the Samsung Propel, the phone will be a compelling device to business users that want a unique form factor smart phone. The device is packed with goodies including a 3-megapixel  camera, Wi-Fi, and GPS support. The keyboard looks much more spacious than the original Propel, and we think business users will appreciate its very pocketable design and budget friendly $149.99 price. a877_2_smallSamsung Impression The Samsung Impression is the first phone with an active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) display to land on a U.S. carrier, and we’re sure it will turn heads. The benefit to an AMOLED screen is that they’re typically much brighter, crisper, and more colorful than standard screens. We’ve seen it before on the likes of the Nokia N85. Did we mention it’s a 3.2-inch touch screen too? There’s no need to fumble with a finicky on-screen keyboard, though, thanks to the full QWERTY that slides out from underneath it for quick messaging. The Impression also offers a “full HTML” browser and turn-by-turn directions with TeleNav GPS. It’s available in metallic blue and will sell for $199.99. AT&T also released a budget friendly Samsung Magnet, which will appeal to a younger audience that doesn’t need a full featured phone.
