Samsung’s new Mega phone has a screen measuring 6.3 inches diagonally, almost as big as a 7-inch tablet computer. The difference: It makes phone calls.
AT&T says it will start selling the Mega on Friday for $150 with a two-year service contract. The Mega is also coming to Sprint and U.S. Cellular. Dates and prices weren’t available for those carriers. The Mega made its debut in Europe and Russia in May, but hasn’t been available in the U.S. until now.
AT&T also announced Monday that it will start selling a smaller version of the HTC One. Called the HTC One Mini, it will have a 4.3-inch screen, compared with 4.7 inches on the standard model. The One Mini will be about $100 cheaper than its big brother. It will be available starting Friday for $100 with a two-year service agreement.
