Trance at Verizon April 24

The Samsung Trance U490 handset is rumored to be released on provider Verizon on April 24th, BGR reported on Thursday. The mid-level slider will have audio specialist Bang & Olufsen's ICEpower hardware and related sound processing software, and will be capable of streaming music to two separate Bluetooth stereo connections simultaneously. The dual-band CDMA phone sports a 2.1-inch, 176x220 display and has a 1.3-megapixel camera. It has just 1GB of internal memory, but can be expanded via a microSD card slot.

Apart from the Bluetooth connection, there is a 3.5mm headset jack, and Verizon's V-CAST music service and Rhapsody will be supported. Music will have to be synchronized from a PC to the phone via a cable connection, as over-the-air downloads are not possible. Users should also get a shortcut button to access their music, and can organize it by creating playlists. VZ Navigator will be preloaded as an option for assisted GPS.

The Trance U490 will cost nearly $50 after a $50 mail-in rebate on a two-year contract with Verizon, $120 after a $50 mail-in-rebate on a one-year contract or $220 unsubsidized. [image via PhoneArena]
