Dallas -- Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung) introduces the latest must-have wireless phones for fashionistas and busy professionals alike. With an integrated camera, familiar AOL(R) Instant Messenger(tm) and ICQ messaging options, the SGH-e317 and SGH-x427m sport features that teens and young professionals demand for their active lifestyles.

Personalization is the name of the game on the x427m with polyphonic ringers, screen savers, wallpapers and advanced messaging that allow users to add animation, pictures and sounds to messages. Consumers also can take advantage of high-speed Internet access to locate information and stay entertained through games, news updates, images, flight information and maps, all of which are brilliantly displayed via the 65,000-color screen.
