Samsung a837 makes it way to AT&T; military-spec? Check

Tired of your phones cracking right in half? Maybe you should start checking out some military-spec grade devices. AT&T and Samsung are set to launch the a837 in the coming weeks, and we’ve just got a flood of pictures and specifications. Here’s a breakdown of the specs:

  • Push-to-talk
  • Bluetooth
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, dual-band UMTS/HSDPA (850MHz/1900MHz)
  • Video Share
  • AT&T Navigator
  • aGPS
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • Conference calling with up to 6 participants total
  • 4.66 ounces
  • 3.95 x 2.05 x .90 inches

At least the military-spec phones are finally getting a much needed hardware bump, right? This thing isn’t exactly a looker, but with pretty limited choices on AT&T, this might be one of your only hopes. We’ve heard this model is set to directly compete with Verizon’s Casio G’zOne phones, and be comparible in terms of pricing. Look for it priced from $99-$150 starting around September 15th, though we’ve heard pre-orders might be starting on the first of the month.

Thanks, Kall!
