Access: Samsung’s First Mobile TV Phone with AT&T

Pfft. Took you long enough. I kid, I kid.

Samsung is joining the mobile TV party at AT&T with the announcement of the SGH-A827, otherwise known as the Samsung Access. This represents Sammy’s first attempt at mobile television with AT&T, so I find it a little curious that they decided to go with such a small display on such a compact candybar handset. After all, the AT&T Mobile TV service is supposed to feature “high-quality programming.”

Outside of the 2.3-inch landscape display “comparable to DVD quality”, the Samsung Access also gets equipped with dual-band 3G, quad-band GSM, Bluetooth, microSD, and a 1.3 megapixel camera with video. No word on price, but the Samsung Access should hit the shelves of AT&T some time in May.
