Samsung MM-A940 Two Megapixel Camera Phone

We're sorry, but the Samsung MM-A940 special offer is unfortunately no longer avaialable. What are the hottest cell phone deals available right now, including free cell phones? Use the Cell Phone Plan Finder to check out the top phones and associated wireless service plans.

The cell phone and digital camera are merging into one. Enter the Samsung MM-A940 camera phone. Most cameraphones have VGA or at most 1.3 Megapixel cameras. The A940 offers a full 2.0 Megapixels. That's way more than enough resolution for sending picture messages to your friends. With 2 Megapixels, 1600 x 1200 pixels, you have enough resolution to print great still photos. No need to carry your digital camera with you. Carry your cell phone and you'll have a great camera available too.

Take a look at the image gallery for the Samsung MM-A940 and you'll notice something unusual. This phone flips open and closed like you would expect. But the display also swivels 90 degrees so that you can see the screen while you are looking at the side of the cell phone. Why would you want to do that? Because that powerful 2 Megapixel camera is located in the hinge area shooting sideways. Swivel your monitor screen and you have yourself a small camcorder. Now you can take and send video clips with sound as well as still photos.

That big screen is a beauty. It measures 176 x 220 pixels and is capable of showing over 262,000 colors. It's a perfect match to the high resolution digital camera. You also get a smaller color external display that shows valuable information while the phone is closed.

The MM in MM-A940 stands for multi-media. You know about the video part. How about audio? The A940 has a built-in MP3 player with stereo sound. Take your tunes with you. There's an expandable memory card slot so you can add memory to store your music and videos.

The MM-A940 is also designated the EVDO-940. EVDO is the high speed 3G or third generation network that Sprint is currently deploying in the United States. It's basically cellular broadband. If you live in one of the major cities where EV-DO service is available, you'll be able to watch on-demand TV video clips or listen to music with the optional Sprint PCS Vision Ultimate Pack.

You have hands-free operating convenience with the Samsung MM-A940. Advanced voice activated dialing lets you call someone by simply speaking a name in your phonebook. No pretraining of the phone to recognize your voice is needed. Turn on the speakerphone and you can talk and listen hands-free, perhaps letting others in on the conversation. For private calls, clip a Bluetooth headset on your ear and converse without having to hold up the phone or deal with tangled headphone wires.

If you'd like a great deal on a cell phone, but prefer a different model or perhaps a different carrier, you'll find just what you want at Cell Phone Plans Finder.
