With the 8130 and the 8830 already in Telus' BlackBerry lineup, the natural next step for any CDMA carrier to take is to launch the recently-spied CDMA Curve, of course. Indeed, it looks like Telus is stepping up to the plate and doing the right thing here, thanks to a sharp-eyed HowardForums member

After a full year on the market, Verizon's apparently looking to give its dual-hinged U740 textmeister a swift kick in the pants. How? By hooking it up with a slick, marketing department-approved name, of course. The U740 will heretofore be known simply as the \"Alias,\" which we don't really think h

We may not know when this thing's going to be at retail, but hey -- at least we'll know our way around the external controls by the time it does. A tipster has graciously hooked us up with overview documentation for the Samsung U740 for Verizon, an off-the-beaten-path, swiveling musicphone that has

Just when we started to warm up to the original's champagne hue, Verizon and Samsung have teamed up to give us the color many of us would've preferred to begin with. That's right: as expected, the dual-pivot u740 is now available dressed in black from head to toe, without any of that not-quite-silv

Not feeling the Samsung U740's champagne hue? Good news: Verizon's latest rebate form reveals that a black version is in the works, arguably more appropriate for the phone's largely business-oriented demographic. Other goodies on the form are few and far between, though our tipster does point out t

Ladies and gentlemen, get those typing thumbs fired up -- it's so close now, we can almost feel that dual hinge flipping to and fro in our hands. Sources tell us we can expect at least an online launch of the Samsung U740 on February 14, with units filtering into stores about a week later. Full ret

We're trying to do everything we can to ease the crushing pain our dual-pivot loving readers face each and every day that the U740 goes unreleased -- and on that note, here's another batch of eye candy. We hope it serves as a gentle reminder to Verizon that we'd like this thing to launch this centu

We know this Samsung isn't that Samsung Roc says, \"more on that later,\" but some things are better than nothing, right? Enter in the latest addition to their low-tier handset lineup, the Samsung U340. Now there isn't a lot to write home about, but this device has all the standard goodies like a VGA

The dual-pivot U740 is making the rounds at CES, though there's not much new to report that we didn't already know: the camera's still 1.3 megapixels, it's still got a microSD slot, Bluetooth, and EV-DO, and -- oh yeah -- the crazy D307-like QWERTY keyboard's still there, too. It's no secret that t

Mixed in with the hoopla surrounding the MediaFLO-capable U620 yesterday came another gem: more details on the dual-hinge U710, which has apparently turned out to be the U740 (you say \"po-tay-to,\" I say \"po-tah-to\"). Like the U620, the U740 is destined for Verizon and -- in theory, anyway -- offers
