Advanced Music and V CAST Video Capabilities Make the a950 a Mobile Entertainment Superstar

BEDMINSTER, N.J. and DALLAS — Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung) and Verizon Wireless today launched the SCH-a950, the perfect music phone for turning customers into mobile DJs. A phone for all the senses, customers with an a950 will also experience enhanced sound quality — from ring tones to music/video playback to conversations via speakerphone — through the phone’s dual stereo speakers.

Equipped with an MP3 player, consumers can take their favorite tunes with them wherever they go. The number of songs is limited only by the size of the TransFlash memory card (purchased separately) that fits neatly in the a950’s expandable memory slot. Pressing the play key on the front of the phone activates the music player. Navigating through the phone’s music library is also a breeze. Music lovers can use the a950’s sleek jog dial to scroll through their playlists, while the keys on the phone’s exterior allow customers to stop, start and skip around to find the tune to fit their mood.

Adding another level to its multimedia multi-tasking, the a950 uses advanced wireless technology and design to offer a complete entertainment experience. Whether streaming news and sports video highlights on Verizon Wireless’ V CAST service, downloading and watching crystal clear V CAST video clips from the hottest new music videos and celebrity gossip news, or listening to favorite songs through the phone’s MP3 player and stereo speakers, customers will have easy access to the very best in wireless entertainment.

Additionally, the phone brings imaging to the multimedia mix with its 1.3 megapixel digital camera and camcorder, allowing snap happy customers to capture still images or video clips to send and share with family and friends. The a950 also supports Bluetooth profiles for headsets and hands-free accessories.*

The a950 is available for $149.99 after $100 mail-in rebate with a two-year customer agreement and in the 1,900 Verizon Wireless stores across the country and at Circuit City locations.
