AT&T and Samsung Telecommunications America have announced that the SLM, Samsung’s newest lightweight mobile phone with music and multimedia capabilities, will soon be available in US stores.
The SLM is the first of Samsung’s music phones to feature Napster Mobile, a new service that enables AT&T’s wireless customers search a music catalog of five million songs, preview samples of each song, and purchase and download songs to their SLM.
According to AT&T, the SLM will also be the first device to have AT&T’s mobile banking application pre-loaded on it. Other key specifications of the device include dual-band 3G connectivity, which provides download speeds of 600Kbps to 1,400Kbps through AT&T’s HSDPA network, and quad-band GSM technology.
Peter Skarzynski, senior vice president of Samsung, said: Samsung is proud to work with AT&T to develop the first device to support the company’s over-the-air music services. The SLM is a first-class handset, packed with a host of multimedia features and advanced music capabilities.
