In time for Valentine's Day gift-seekers or singles in love with the hottest wireless gadgets on the market, AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) today announced $99.99 promotional pricing through Feb. 14, 2008, on three red feature-packed wireless devices ? the Shine by LG, the BlackJack II by Samsung and the BlackBerry Curve 8310. All three devices are exclusive to AT&T.
"Chocolates and flowers are standby gifts for Valentine's Day, but this year we're spicing things up by offering terrific deals for those who want to go with something different," said Andy Wilson, vice president of National Marketing for AT&T's wireless unit. "These eye-catching red devices are available at a great promotional price, and with unlimited Mobile to Mobile calling and unlimited text messaging plans, it's easy and affordable for consumers to stay connected with loved ones."
The new red Shine by LG is a sliding form-factor device with a 2.2-inch mirror LCD screen that comes pre-loaded with robust features such as AT&T Video Share, Mobile Banking and AT&T Mobile Music, along with a 2.0-megapixel camera and Bluetooth 2.0 capability.
The BlackJack II by Samsung gives users access to multiple e-mail accounts and offers over-the-air synchronization of contacts, a calendar and task lists. It comes with a 2.0-megapixel camera, supports multimedia applications ? including AT&T Video Share ? and also has built-in GPS capabilities. The GPS capabilities allow customers to use location-based applications and services, such as TeleNav GPS Navigator, which provides turn-by-turn voice and on-screen directions with 3-D moving maps and traffic alerts.
The BlackBerry Curve combines e-mail and messaging capabilities with premium phone and multimedia features, including a 2.0-megapixel camera and AT&T Mobile Music capabilities.
