Intended to play smooth, full-motion video clips, the Samsung SCH-A890 is Samsung’s first cell phone to take advantage of Verizon’s V-Cast Service. The SCH-A890 allows you to download and view video clips from a variety of sources – this means that you can choose from premium content that includes 3D games, music videos and other video clips for virtually endless entertainment right on your handheld.
You can watch videos on the beautiful 2” 262K-color Thin Film Transistor LCD internal screen (that has 176 X 220 pixel resolution) for a sharp, crystal clear picture. The external screen on this silver clamshell flip phone is stunning in its own right. Why? The phone is able to support 65,000 colors and displays the date, time, battery life, signal strength, photos, and caller-ID information (where available).
In addition, the SCH-A890 comes with an integrated 1.3-megapixel camera to permit you to shoot clips of your own. The swivel camera lens allows you to adjust your camera angle. Further, you can take pictures in four resolutions: 1,280×960, 640×480, 320×240 and 160×120. Users can also utilize the camera’s flash and adjust the quality settings, five color modes, and three shutter sounds to optimize your photo taking.
The SCH-A890 camera also comes with a unique “ready sound” that plays just prior to taking a picture. Other controls include a self-timer, a 4X zoom, a brightness control, and an editing function that lets you rotate the image or flip the photo’s orientation.
The SCH-A890 features a WAP 2.0 web browser that lets you surf the net and send e-mails from wherever you happen to be. Not to mention, you can now download video content and keep yourself entertained with the phone’s V Cast technology.
The sleek and silver SCH-A890 weighs in at 2.8 ounces and measures 2” X 3.5” – offering a lot of technology in compact package. The dual band SCH-A890 comes with a standard battery that provides up to 4.5 hours of talk time in digital mode or 180 hours on standby.
As you can see, the Samsung SCH-A890 is a perfect cell phone for users on the go.
