Samsung U620 Launch Detail
Samsung's upcoming mobile TV phone for the American market appeared briefly on Verizon's test page, according to a leak discovered by My: Tech. The appearance essentially confirms an imminent launch of the phone and its accompanying mobile TV service, which should represent the first-ever digital broadcast TV service readily available in the US. The features should remain unchanged from the CES announcement with a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and EVDO as standard.
Pricing for the U620 will be set at $150 when the phone is bought along with a two-year contract. An official launch is unknown but should take place within the next two weeks, as the test page is usually the final precursor to a public release.
