Samsung U710 for Verizon

Photos have appeared showing a new Samsung smartphone that will soon arrive at Verizon, according to contributors from HowardForums. Initially discovered in FCC testing, the U710 is an answer to LG's VX9900, also set to be carried by Verizon. While it resembles a music phone on the outside, including dedicated external music controls and an accordant display, the bi-directional clamshell design opens to reveal a QWERTY keyboard suited to e-mail and texting. Features are expected to be rich, sources report, including a 3.2-megapixel camera, EVDO broadband, and enhanced Bluetooth support that can transmit all audio -- not just that from a media player or other specific programs -- to nearby wireless headphones or speakers. The phone's menus are also notable for supporting visual themes, a feature previously absent on many Samsung handhelds. No launch information has been given, though the existence of the Verizon branding on the U710 points to a release in the near future. Click through for a photo gallery.
