(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The 6.3-inch phablet known as the Samsung Galaxy Mega is set to arrive in the United States soon.
Wireless carrier AT&T will begin selling the device tomorrow for the price of $149.99 with new two-year contract agreements.
“Images and web content come alive on the large display, making it easy to stay productive and entertained almost anywhere, all on the nation’s fastest and now most reliable 4G LTE network,” commented AT&T Senior VP of Devices Jeff Bradley via a press release.
Galaxy Mega comes with Android Jelly Bean and features things like multi view, WatchON, Air View, Easy Mode, Story Album and S Translator.
Many analysts, meanwhile, have wondered about the Mega’s appeal in the U.S. market (the smartphone was previously released in Europe).
“The big question here is whether the Galaxy Mega will find a base of customers. The device will be too large for a pocket, but may take some of the market that would gravitate to a 7-inch tablet,” explained Larry Dignan writing for ZDNet.
On the opposite end, Samsung previously released an S4 Mini in March.
