Samsung u900, reveal thyself

Chris Ziegler

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 megapixels, to be exact -- but the autofocus is an important and increasingly ubiquitous feature in this range that makes a huge difference in picture quality. There's a flash too, naturally -- and the u900's screen rotates around to do an even better job of feigning a true point-and-shoot. Still no word on a release, but it sure looks ready to launch from all these press shots we've seen.
