Samsung flexes its muscles with a657 for AT&T

Chris Ziegler

Flips not your taste? If you need a phone you can throw down a flight of stairs into a pool of muddy water without a care in the world, that's a problem, because AT&T's two headlining rugged sets -- the Rugby and the Tundra -- are both flips. Good news is that's all about to change with the introduction of the a657 from Samsung, a beefy candybar (gee, that sounds gross) with HSDPA, AT&T Navigator, microSD expansion up to 8GB, push-to-talk, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, and an integrated flashlight. Conveniently, the device is certified to meet mil spec 810F standards for moisture, shock, vibration, and all that good stuff, so you'll be able to toss this puppy around without a care in the world. It's only available through AT&T's business channel at this point, so pricing will depend on your company's agreement with 'em (oh, come on, it's not like you were going to buy this as an individual anyhow, were you?).
