BlackJack II available on Black Friday
Coincidence or not, the BlackJack II smartphone for AT&T will become available for purchase on a popular day that is similar to its name – Black Friday – which is on November 23rd, in other words, 2 days from now.
The mobile device was announced on October during CTIA, and can be considered an upgrade from the previous BlackJack. As a true upgrade should be, the new Samsung phone has a bigger screen, an improved design, fresh colors, additional shortcut buttons to soften up the usability, and a jog wheel instead of the usual scroll wheel.
On top of the previously mentioned features, the BlackJack II comes with a GPS system and is compatible with AT&T Video Share. As for the price, $150 with a 2-year contract, and while the black colored version will be available this Friday, the burgundy model will only be for sale on December 6.
