Samsung U340 at Verizon
In addition to this morning's Strawberry Chocolate, Verizon has also brought Samsung's U340 clamshell to its catalog. Ostensibly a budget phone, the Samsung still carries with it features usually reserved for slightly more advanced devices, including a VGA camera, an external 96x96 display, and basic Internet services like e-mail and instant messaging. It also has its own unique software feature: its emergency contact list is available at all times -- even when the phone is locked, Verizon writes.
Price is considered the phone's strongest selling point; available today, the U340 is currently free when tied to a two-year service plan and a $30 rebate.
