We were getting a little sick of hearing Samsung SGH-A990 whispers here and there (and FCC filing thrown in for good measure), which is why we're rather thankful a little bird dropped off these sweet shots of Verizon's forthcoming handset -- one of the first Stateside (let alone from VZW) we've seen to feature a swiveling display. If our expectations are to be fulfilled, this hot little number won't only have EV-DO, but will drop with a QVGA display, MicroSD, Bluetooth, and a fat 3.2 megapixel camera. Expect more details as we get 'em, but for now click on to see some more shots of what may well be many a feature phone users' next device.

*Verizon is currently in the process of acquiring AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
