Verizon's new tilt is well on its way as we can easily tell from its latest release, Samsung's SCH-a930. Notably absent is the usual aerial, but present is not only full V CAST support, Bluetooth, and MicroSD, but those external media playback buttons the a930 turned a few heads with on this otherwise clamped down clamshell. You can get yours now for as little as $99.99 with two year service contract.
