Samsung TwoStep at USC
US Cellular on Friday picked up the Samsung TwoStep. The new music flip phone recalls iPod design with a jogwheel on the outside for controlling volume and skipping tracks on the outside screen without opening the full device. Samsung also outfits the phone with stereo speakers, a dedicated music key on the inside and a microSDHC slot that holds cards up to 8GB.
The handset is otherwise strictly geared towards the lower mid-range with a 1.3-megapixel camera and Bluetooth as its most distinctive non-music features. US Cellular hasn't supplied pricing but should be carrying the phone today in orange, purple and red outer colors.
