The Samsung A990 brings the camera to the phone. Until now VGA and 1.3 megapixel cameras have been stuck onto handsets as a weak excuse for integrated cameras. In the end these pictures were far from beautiful, especially once they were transferred off of your camera to a larger screen or printed. The Samsung’s SCH-A990 is a 3.2 megapixel camera phone that means business.
The companies said in a news release that the A990 produces photos comparable to a stand-alone camera and also has the ability to transmit the images to a Bluetooth-enabled printer. The device is also Mobile Web 2.0-capable and accommodates V-cast technology for video and music downloads.
It will be available to Verizon customers for about $350 after rebate plus a two-year service agreement.
