Samsung Propel Pro finally ready for purchase on AT&T

It’s all about QWERTY these days and despite the company’s penchant for full-touchscreen handsets, Samsung has been known to turn out a solid messenger or two. Case in point: the new Samsung Propel Pro, which is now available from AT&T. AT&T made the Propel Pro offical just ahead ahead of CTIA and introduced it alongside five other message-hungry handsets. Despite being forced to share the limelight with a handful of other devices, the Propel Pro can certainly hold its own and looks to be a fine replacement for its predecessor, the Propel. Specs:

  • Slider form factor, QWERTY keypad
  • 2.5-inch TFT display, 320 x 320 pixels, 65K colors
  • Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • Tri-band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity (850/1900/2100 MHz)
  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard OS
  • 3 megapixel camera with autofocus
  • Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 2.0
  • MicroSDHC support
  • 4 x 2.5 x 0.6 inches, 4.8 ounces
  • Talk time: up to 6 hours, Standby time: up to 12 days

Sammy’s Propel Pro rings up at $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate on a two-year contract. For the more frugal among you, the original Propel is sitting pretty at $49.99 until inventory is depleted. As an odd side note, AT&T is offering refurbished Propels online at the same $49.99 price point. Hmm.

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

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.

Stock sheet may reveal available dates of some upcoming handsets

Stock sheet may reveal available dates of some upcoming handsets

Rumored to be a portion of a stock sheet from Best Buy a “major national retailer”, this image above is reportedly reveals the release dates of a variety of upcoming handsets. No, there’s nothing too exciting there but if the source is reliable it does indeed fill in a few question marks that have been looming — namely the E71x release date. So let’s have a look… Starting with AT&T, the document lists both the Samsung i627 “Jackfrost” and blue Samsung A767 “Propel” as becoming available on March 29th. Next up is the Nokia E71x, listed as “E71 Charcoal”, finally arriving on April 1st and the LG Xenon, which was apparently delayed so long it’s now called “Zenon”, arriving on April 10th. Moving along to Verizon, it looks like the Nokia 7205 Intrigue will hit store shelves on March 15th along with Sprint’s Palm Treo Pro which has been delayed more than a connecting flight in Atlanta. Sure, the more exciting handsets of 2009 won’t be out until the Summer months and beyond, but there are a few nice looking pieces of kit here to tide us over in the meantime.

AT&T holiday lineup revealed

AT&T holiday lineup revealed

Wondering what your shopping list might look like this holiday season? One of our AT&T ninjas got his hands on an internal control document outlining new release between now and the holidays so if AT&T is your carrier of choice, here’s what Big Blue has in store for you between now and the holidays:

  • Pantech Matrix: $80 after MIR
  • Samsung Propel:$80 after MIR
  • AT&T Quickfire: $100 after MIR
  • Samsung Eternity: $150 after MIR
  • Samsung EPIX: $200 after MIR
  • LG Incite: $200 after MIR
  • HTC Fuze: $300 after MIR

Last but certainly not least, our ninja did in fact report that the Bold is on the list – with no pricing specified of course. At the very least, this may put the Bold on store shelves by the time the holiday shopping season starts, though we expect that it’ll drop sooner rather than later. Then again, as much as it has been delayed thus far AT&T may just be holding the spot without any real indication that it will be ready in time. Fingers = crossed.
