It's hard to get us too terribly fired up over a low-end handset (MOTOFONE notably excepted), but the Samsung SCH-R500 "Hue" is, by all appearances, a hot little number considering its $40 price on contract. For forty bills, we'd typically expect a VGA cam, 1xRTT, and not terribly much else -- but the Hue may very well be signaling a true changing of the low-end guard here by serving a 1.3 megapixel shooter, EV-DO data, and stereo frickin' Bluetooth. Add in the fact that the flip's available in five tasty interchangeable, and we'd say Alltel has a winner on its hands. Grab it now online and in store.
