Holiday Phone Shopping Deals
      #31932 - 11/23/08 10:40 AM

With Black Friday coming next week, we've put together a list of phones that we have great deals on with our partner Simplexity. We will keep updating this list throughout this holiday shopping season, so check back for new updates.


Samsung Eternity
The Samsung Eternity SGH-a867 features a large 240 x 400 touch screen with Samsung's cool TouchWiz UI. It has haptic feedback, a great on-screen QWERTY keyboard, Mobile TV, a full web browser, CV, a strong 3 megapixel camera, and a capable music player with 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and Bluetooth stereo.



Price: Free with 2-year contract no rebate required



Samsung Propel
The Samsung Propel SGH-a767 is one of an army of QWERTY keyboard messaging phones out for the holiday season. The Propel, like the QuickFire, Slate and Matrix have hardware keyboards but aren't smartphones, meaning lower data plan prices and they're easy to use. The Propel is a slider whose keyboard tucks away, and it has a 1.3 megapixel camera, music player with Bluetooth stereo, 3G HSDPA, CV streaming video and a GPS that works with AT&T Navigator.



Price: Free with 2-year contract no rebate required


BlackBerry Storm
The Storm features a unique moving touch screen that clicks when you press down to provide tactile feedback when typing, clicking web links, selecting icons and more. The Storm is a CDMA phone with EVDO rev. A for fast data and it has a GSM SIM card slot for overseas travel. The BlackBerry features a wonderful 480 x 360 display, an accelerometer, GPS with VZ Navigator, Bluetooth 2.0 with stereo support and a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera.



Price: $149 with 2-year contract no rebate required



HTC Touch Pro for Sprint
The Touch Pro, like the Diamond, has a fantastic VGA flush touch screen with TouchFLO 3D reviving tired Windows Mobile's look and feel. The Pro has it all: GPS, Sprint TV, YouTube, email, serious web browsing with Opera, WiFi, Bluetooth with A2DP and an SDHC microSD card slot. It runs on a 528MHz processor with 288 megs of RAM and 512 megs of flash memory for storage. It sports a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with flash, a 5 row slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Windows Mobile 6.1.



Price: $199 with 2-year contract after Sprint rebate


LG Lotus
The LG Lotus is a nearly square flip phone with a roomy QWERTY keyboard inside. If you thought the Verizon Blitz was novel looking, the Lotus is truly head-turning. But looks aren't everything, and thankfully the LG impressed us with its very good 2 megapixel camera, excellent Sprint TV performance, integrated document viewer, good GPS, sharp and bright widescreen display and good EVDO speeds. As you'd expect from a QWERTY phone, the Lotus handles IM, texting and personal email.



Price: $49.99 with 2-year contract no rebate required


BlackBerry Bold
RIM's top of the line traditional BlackBerry has a fantastic 480 x 320 pixel color display that looks so good it's unreal. We call the Bold 9000 for AT&T "traditional" because it keeps the standard QWERTY hardware keyboard and non-touch screen display that the upcoming BlackBerry Storm on Verizon sets aside. The Bold is the first 3G HSDPA BlackBerry, and it has WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS too. Throw in Bluetooth stereo A2DP, a 3.5mm stereo headset jack, 2MP camera, and a great media player and an SDHC microSD card slot and you've got some serious entertainment possibilities as well.



Price: $199.99 with 2-year contract after AT&T rebate



HTC Fuze for AT&T
The Fuze has the same set of features, but the casing is classic GSM Diamond, with a gloss black faceted back and angular lines. The Fuze is a quad band GSM phone with triband 3G HSDPA for the US and overseas. It runs HTC's TouchFLO 3D UI on top of Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, and it has a wonderful VGA touch screen. Like the HTC Tilt it replaces, it has GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth with A2DP stereo too. The Fuze has a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard and support for email including push email, SMS and IM.



Price: $175.99 with 2-year contract after AT&T rebate


Stay tuned. More to come...

We've just added a new deal:

MOTOZINE ZN5 with 5 Megapixel Camera
A 5 megapixel camera phone with an autofocus lens and Xenon flash for $99 with contract? Nice! T-Mobile has got the deal for those of you who are camera buffs and like the look and feel of the ROKR E8, minus haptics. This stylish and solid Moto has a very good 5MP camera with Kodak technology inside and easy uploads to Kodak's free web-based gallery. The Zine ZN5 is a quad band GSM phone with EDGE, sharp voice quality, a music player and music-oriented features like a 3.5mm headset jack and A2DP Bluetooth stereo. It's got WiFi for relatively painless image uploads, USB image transfer and output to TV.




Price: Free with 2-year contract after T-Mobile $100 mail-in rebate

AT&T Quickfire
The AT&T Quickfire by UTStarcom takes on the SideKick and then some. The phone features a slide-out keyboard whose design is reminiscent of the SideKick and T-Mobile G1. The Quickfire is feature phone, not a smartphone, and it has 3G HSDPA, a full HTML web browser, IM, basic email support, CV streaming video, a music player and an SDHC microSD card slot. Bluetooth with A2DP and a 1.3 megapixel camera round out this messaging phone's features.



Price: Free with 2-year contract no rebate required
