Sprint and Samsung have unveiled a two-megapixel camera phone with multiple additional features such as a digital camcorder, removable memory slot, stereo sound, speech-to-text dictation technology, and a built-in media player for television reception.
Unveiled Thursday, the companies said the MM-A800 camera phone is available now at Best Buy stores and soon at online outlets and Sprint Stores. Sprint said the phone is priced at ranges between $349 and $499 depending on the service plan that accompanies the phone.
The device has traditional digital-camera features including a 32MB card, auto focus, 2.5x zoom, flash, color adjustments, as well as a USB cable connection for printing photos. The camcorder feature enables users to capture and send 30-second videos. A business card imaging feature lets users scan business cards into the device's contact list.
Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) provides high quality audio performance and the included VoiceMode allows users to dictate text messages.
