This mobile handset allows the user to connect to Napster mobile and allows the user to actively sample, buy, and download music from Napster’s extensive music library of five million music tracks. The Samsung SLM will be the first mobile phone from AT&T that offers the companies renewed teaming with Napster which was announced previously last month.
