Samsung and Verizon Wireless Release SCH-a990 With 3.2 Megapixel Digital Camera
Samsung and Verizon Wireless are announcing the SCH-a990, a 3.2 megapixel digital camera phone that enables photo enthusiasts to take high-resolution photos of a similar print quality as a standalone digital camera.

In addition, the SCH-a990 boasts a number of media features, including video recording capabilities, V CAST to view video and V CAST Music to download music directly to the phone and Bluetooth wireless technology, to allow a customer to print pictures wirelessly from the SCH-a990 to a Bluetooth-enabled printer basic print profile.

The SCH-a990 has a design that looks first like a phone and then, when the screen is rotated 180 degrees, like a camera. This design, along with the high resolution and features such as a flash and in-camera photo editing software, make the SCH-a990 a mobile device that is as much a camera as it is a multimedia phone.

The V CAST multimedia capabilities on the new handset provides full music, video and game capabilities on a high-resolution screen. V CAST Music lets customers play music on their cellular phones. V CAST customers can browse, preview, download and play high-quality digital music from their SCH-a990 over Verizon Wirelessí broadband network or from the Verizon Wireless V CAST Music online store using a personal computer.

The new SCH-a990 also supports Verizon Wirelessí VZ Navigator, a tool for customers that includes mapping, audible turn-by-turn navigation and the ability to find over 14 million points of interest.

This handset will be available in stores from 24 July 2006.
