Samsung Galaxy Mega Available at AT&T August 23
Concerns over Android hardware fragmentation not with standing, the Samsung Galaxy Mega is a smartphone for people who need a handset that's nearly the size of a tablet. As reported by Engadget, the 6.3-inch device will be available from AT&T on August 23 for $150 with a two-year contract. Samsung also announced Galaxy Mega availability from Sprint and US Cellular, though there was no specific mention of price or release date yet.
Of course, in the case of AT&T, there's also the option to take the Next program, with the Galaxy Mega running $24 per month and the opportunity to upgrade to a new smartphone after a year. Sprint, on the other hand, is reinforcing its commitment to unlimited data.
"While other wireless providers are moving away from unlimited service, the Sprint Unlimited Guarantee allows our customers to lock-in unlimited talk, text and data, not for just the next two years, but for the life of the line of service," said Sprint's Fared Adib.
The 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega offers a 1280 x 720 resolution display, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.7GHz dual-core processor. Available in either black or white finish, the Mega comes with 8GB or 16GB storage (up to 64GB with microSD card).
