Samsung SCH-u550 from Verizon Wireless
Fans of Samsung, hear ye, hear ye! There is a new handset from the Korean phone manufacturer in the form of the SCH-u550, and this model is now available from Verizon Wireless. This clamshell device is meant for the fashion conscious as it sports a trend-setting brown finish that is sure to get tongues wagging (unless you hang out with a snooty crowd whose cell phones are all Vertus) without sacrificing on functionality. Before we get to the details after the jump, interested parties will be able to pick up the SCH-u550 online or via any of the 2,400 Verizon Wireless Communications Stores throughout the country.
What are some of the features you can find in the SCH-u550? For starters, there is the 1.3 megapixel camera which is the bare minimum these days where cell phone cameras are concerned, but this one is special since it comes with a Night Shot mode that makes it a snap (no pun intended) to capture images in darker environments. Even so, don’t expect super clear images, but the performance ought to be much better than the average cell phone camera. In addition to capturing still images, this nifty little camera also features digital zoom to get up close and personal and a camcorder ability for you to record all those sex scandals that you’ve been reading about in the papers, although you won’t be shooting any celebrities anytime soon being the neighborhood voyeur.
