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-silver, not-quite-beige craziness of its forebear. Not to say existing owners need to get too jealous -- specs are, of course, identical. Get it now for a Franklin after contract and rebates.
