Samsung A870 now available on Verizon

Chris Ziegler

First, the good news: the long-rumored SCH-A870 has finally hit Verizon's e-store. Now the bad news, depending on how you look at it: the clamshell's a good deal lower-end than we'd expected. Gone are the 2-megapixel shooter (replaced with a meager VGA unit) and EV-DO support; what you do get, however, is Bluetooth with DUN plus the usual Verizon profiles. Without glorious EV-DO, that DUN business can get a little painful, so hopefully users can find it in their wallets to spring for a separate 3G card since this puppy is only going to run you $50 on a 2-year contract.
