AT&T GoPhone releases Samsung A167

We kick off the week with some device news from AT&T GoPhone. It’s not nearly as cool as the Samsung a117, the full-QWERTY device AT&T announced last week. Instead, it’s the A167, an entry-level flip phone. Like most phones of its ilk, it features just a VGA camera and Bluetooth. The attractive part about this is the price, $70 without a contract. I wonder if this will show up in retail packs. It seems like the perfect phones: cheap, but with the camera and Bluetooth which might gain attention among other entry-level phones. You can get it at AT&T’s website.

    I got this phone as a backup phone (I have a Samsung Solstice). The a167 is okay; call quality is about mediocre. The buttons on this phone are rather small, and as far as I can tell there’s no “wake up alarm” feature. As for the camera, I’ve definitely had better– camera and editing features are the bare minimum. The size is perfect, though, since it fits easily into a pocket, even a fairly small pocket.

    This phone would seem a good choice for someone who is a light user, for a child, or for someone who needs an extra, back-up phone.
