In case you're interested, Verizon's teaser page for its fresh lineup is offering folks the opportunity to pre-order the Samsung Juke... like, right now. Strangely, we're finding that the actual pre-order link is taking us to a page for the old-skool u620 VCAST TV slider; looks like they're still getting their I's dotted and T's crossed as we speak, so stay tuned. Either way, expect an October 19 launch (with delivery of pre-orders soon thereafter, we'd hope).
