Three new Samsung BOGO offers coming to AT&T; A877 gets a name and a price

It looks like Samsung fans looking to re-up with AT&T or open a new account are in for a hell of a deal next month. Word from one of our ninjas has the carrier kicking off a killer BOGO promotion on April 7th and it’s all about Sammy this time around. The news also solidifies a launch time frame for the sexy upcoming Samsung A877, which will be dubbed the Samsung Impression. We now know it will be on shelves by the 7th in time for this promo so we’re guessing it will be launched some time before or around CTIA. You know, to ensure early adopters pay full price. Here’s what we’ve got:

  • Samsung A877 Impression – buy one for $199.99 get one free
  • Samsung Eternity – buy one for $129.99 get one free
  • Samsung A767 Propel – buy one for $49.99 get one free

We also imagine the new price on the Eternity (currently $149.99) will stick even after the promotion ends. Not bad AT&T, not bad at all.

Samsung A877 appears on Craigslist in the flesh

Samsung A877 appears on Craigslist in the flesh

Sure they’re small and a bit blurry but the images above definitely go a great distance in helping to solidifying the rumors from last night. Apparently someone tried to take advantage of all the hype surrounding the Samsung A877 reported to be making its way to AT&T on March 29th, and tried to make a quick buck on Craigslist. The listing was all kinds of messed up — it even referred to the handset as the Samsung Eternity — but the pictures do all the taking we need. The post has since been pulled so either the handset has been sold or the seller lost his nerve but either way, we’re looking forward to the 29th when AT&T will reportedly make this sexy little devil a reality.

Samsung A877 spied, headed to AT&T?

Samsung A877 spied, headed to AT&T?

Call this one unconfirmed at best, but word on the street puts a new Samsung QWERTY slider on AT&T shelves at the end of this month. Now, don’t get too excited as this puppy isn’t exactly the handset to end all handsets, but it is one of the best looking QWERTY feature phones we’ve seen heading to AT&T so consider our interest piqued. First and foremost, it’s not a smartphone — the A877 allegedly sports Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. What it lacks in brains however, it most certainly makes up for in brawn:

  • 3.2-inch WQVGA AMOLED touchscreen
  • Slide-out QWERTY and messaging shortcut button
  • 3 megapixel camera with geotagging
  • Telenav GPS Navigator
  • Full HTML browser
  • TouchWiz user interface
  • Quadband EDGE/GSM
  • Dual band HSDPA (1900 and 850)
  • Bluetooth, MP3 player

3.2-inch AMOLED display, 3G/3.5G, 3 megapixel camera… This is definitely going to be a desirable handset amongst messaging fanatics looking for some style to go with their blister-inducing thumb speed. The source of the rumor places the A877 on AT&T shelves for a March 29th release, though no pricing is specified for the time being.

Thanks, Erich
