Rumored earlier already, AT&T just officially announced the Samsung Propel Pro messaging smartphone, together with a new and a fresh new lineup of smartphones and quick messaging phones that make it easier for customers to message with friends and family and manage their business and personal lives on-the-go. The Propel Pro is a full-QWERTY silver and chrome compact slider smartphone, running Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard. It allows users to run full enterprise applications on the same platform they use to text and send photos. Evolving from the popular Samsung Propel, business users and consumers looking for a full-feature smartphone with WiFi will look to the Propel Pro.

The Samsung Propel Pro features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and triband UMTS/HSDPA at 850/1900/2100 MHz as well as WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0. It's powered by a Qualcomm CPU at 528 MHz and is backed-up by 256 MB ROM and 128MB RAM which can be expanded by microSD cards. The non-touchscreen 2.55" display features a screen resolution of 320 x 320 pixels and the autofocus camera supports 3.0 megapixel. The (locked) internal GPS receiver can be used for turn-by-turn directions with AT&T Navigator. Quite unusual for a Windows Mobile smartphone is the trackball in addition to the Windows Mobile Standard buttons like Home/Back, call send/end.

The Samsung Propel Pro will be available on contract in April for US$ 149.99.
If the Samsung Propel Pro will be released outside the U.S. as well is uncertain today. At least, Samsung hasn't made any global announcements yet.

Looks good! Any info about GPS? I doubt AT&T will allow unlocked GPS but anyway.

I've just updated the specs and as you can see, the Samsung Propel Pro features inbuilt GPS. But you are right, it's most likely locked-down to AT&T's own service. Nevertheless, I'm sure it can be "liberated" as it was also possible to unlock AT'T's BlackJack II GPS.
