Verizon giving Samsung Gleam a dash of purple

In case the original Gleam wasn't... shall we say, gleamy enough, perhaps a violet-ification (pardon the grossly abused suffix) of the phone's exterior is just what the doctor ordered. The midrange flip for Verizon relaunches in purple come the 27th of this month for $99.99 on contract after rebates. Tough call with the equally loud pink Centro for Sprint coming in at the same price point, we'd say.
