If you're a Verizon loyalist pining after the likes of the LG Lotus and the Samsung Cleo, great news: we think your savior is on its way. We're hearing rumors that the u440 Cleo will launch as the "Strut" on Big Red's airwaves before too long, a move that was probably necessitated (or at least expedited) by Sprint's recent launch of the Lotus. We still think this form factor looks a wee bit odd -- especially when closed -- but if there are two things Americans like, it's flips and QWERTY keyboards, so the trend was probably overdue anyway.
