The Samsung BlackJack II is now officially available from ATnT. The successor to the Samsung BlackJack adds a GPS, Windows Mobile 6 Standard Edition, and a larger 2.4" display and triband HSPDA. It sells for $149, which is a pretty good deal for a slim, feature-rich smartphone. The Motorola Q9 Global also on ATT is the BlackJack II's worst enemy, ironically.
