Samsung U740 at Verizon

US cell provider Verizon today announced that it now offers the Samsung U740. Seen with the carrier's logos as early as November, the U740 is rare among US phones for its double-hinged clamshell. While opening vertically for ordinary calls, the Samsung device can also open laterally and turn its keypad into a full keyboard for e-mail or instant messages. Verizon adds that the phone's convertible shape also makes it ideal for the carrier's Wireless Sync feature: the U740 can pair with a specific PC and remotely download the latest contacts, e-mail, or other essentials as they receive updates on the host.

Samsung's device slots directly into the mid-range of Verizon's lineup with a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, EVDO Internet access, and playback for music and videos from either the user's microSD cards or the provider's V CAST service. The U740 ships today for $150 when linked with a two-year plan. A gallery follows after the jump.
