Breaking new ground, Sprint now offers Samsung's MM-A800, the first 2 Megapixel handset to hit shelves in the U.S - complete with microSD expansion.
 
Marking the introduction of the first two-megapixel camera phone to grace American shores, Sprint has announced that the mobile network operator is now carrying the Samsung MM-A800. A slider handset with a comprehensive feature set, the MM-A800 not only shoots stills but also records video in VGA format, a feat unsurpassed by any other handset in the West to date.

The dual-band, tri-mode CDMA/CDMA2000 1xRTT 800/1900 MHz, AMPS 800 MHz handset offers a slew of features, all accessed through a 262K colour TFT display with a QVGA resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. The main draw of the handset, however, is its 2 Megapixel integrated camera which shoots stills at resolutions up to 1632 x 1224 pixels and boasts autofocus, a self-timer, brightness adjustment and 2.5x digital zoom.

As if that wasn't enough, the camera also records video either to the 32 MB of internal RAM of the handset at 640 x 480 pixel resolution, or alternatively directly to a microSD expansion card. Also, the MM-A800 features an audio player with support for AAC tunes, which would likely require users to purchase the extended battery accessory to avoid depleting the feature-laden phone in no time at all.

Offering USB connectivity, the MM-A800 is also PictBridge compatible, letting users output images directly to PictBridge-equipped printers. Reversely, Biz-Card scan software in the MM-A800 can apply optical character recognition to photos of business cards, inputting contact information directly into the device's internal contacts directory. In addition, the handset also incorporates VoiceMode, the speech-to-text recognition feature previously only found in Samsung's P207 handset for the U.S. market.

The MM-A800 also offers streaming music and video clips live and on-demand in real time from Sprint TV and other channel providers directly through the phone's built-in media player at up to 15 frames per second.

Immediately available, the 3.9 x 1.9 x 0.9 inches, 4.3 oz Samsung MM-A800 sells for a suggested retail price of $499.99 USD.
