Samsung U410 for Verizon

Verizon is about to release a new phone that provides navigation for a low cost, according to new details that have surfaced online. The Samsung U410 will be relatively simple as a standard phone with Bluetooth, a VGA camera, and a 96x96-resolution external LCD. However, the clamshell handset will also have assistive GPS support for use with the carrier's VZ Navigator service, including spoken directions around the US and markers for points of interest such as banks and restaurants. Internet is handled through a multi-network IM client as well as basic RTT access.

Pricing isn't known, but the finished state of the phone with Verizon branding points to a release in mid-2007 at a low (and potentially free) contract price. [via Mobiledia]
