One of the great things about the original Soul is that despite its heavy-hitting credentials -- 5-megapixel camera, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, and OLED-equipped d-pad, just to name a few -- it remains a pretty understated (read: tasteful) slider. Of course, taste isn't for everyone, which is apparently why Sa...

If you thought Samsung's Soul would be content with sitting in Barcelona, you've never had the pleasure of vacationing in Las Vegas. Sure enough, the Soul is following the HTC Touch Dual in making its US debut at CTIA 2008, and it's quite alright if your palms are already beginning to get sweaty. A...

The Soul is all metal and glossy surfaces, has a "Magical Touch" d-pad which features haptic feedback, is a complete fingerprint magnet, and we love it. It feels substantial, looks like a million bucks and while the d-pad is a bit gimmicky -- ok, well maybe a lot gimmicky -- this thing is going to...

Samsung just announced their new flagship "Soul" cellphone in the spirit of its Ultra Editions. Get it? Spirit Of ULtra, soul? Yeah. Anyway, as Sammy's go-to phone for 2008, we're looking at a quad-band GSM phone with 7.2Mbps HSDPA; 2.2-inch QVGA display; 5 megapixel, image stabilized camera with P...

Look familiar? It should -- we've known that the A990's replacement has been stewing on the burner for a while now, and here it is in official form. The U900 FlipShot from Samsung is positioned as Verizon's ultimate, do-all multimedia powerhouse without venturing into smartphone territory, offering...

This one's been cookin' for a while, so we really don't have a hard time believing phoneArena's claim that the Samsung u900 "FlipShot" -- a 3 megapixel hottie that looks to succeed the venerable a990 -- will be shipping this coming Wednesday, November 21. Though the u900's both thinner and lighter t...

Every carrier needs a massive, over-engineered camera-first, phone-second kind of device in its lineup; for Verizon, that had previously been the Samsung a990, and it's looking more and more like the u900 is going to make for a fabulous successor. The camera sensor itself doesn't grow at all -- 3 m...

phoneArena's scored some more details on the U700 and U900 flips from Samsung that had previously been mentioned as contributors to Verizon's rumored lineup for the remainder of the year, and at least one of the two looks from the outset like a high-end winner. First up, the U700 Gleam offers prett...

phoneArena scored a wealth -- nay, a veritable cornucopia of information detailing Verizon's releases for the rest of 2007, and we can say with some confidence that there's something in here for everyone. Starting with smartphones, SMT5800, XV6800, Samsung i760, and Motorola Q9m should hit in Octob...

Yeah, we know, we're getting a little granular on this one, but remember LG's then-unnamed swiveling DVB-H handset? The one with the weird vaguely W300i-like buttons? Well, it was officially announced in Italy as the U900, and will see service through Hutchison's 3 network with UMTS service and, of...
