Samsung u550 heads to market for Verizon

Chris Ziegler

This one's been in the mix for a long time now, so it's really too bad it's not a u940-caliber device so we could have ourselves a big ol' celebration. Don't get us wrong -- as the successor to the u540, we're sure Samsung's u550 flip for Verizon will end up seeing its fair share of takers -- it's just nothing to get too fired up over. The headlining features are going to be EV-DO, a 1.3 megapixel camera with Night Shot, Bluetooth, internal 220 x 176 and external 96 x 96 displays, and that's about it -- specifications that would've catapulted the device smack into the middle of the midrange a year or two ago, but now, it's struggling to stay atop the bottom feeders. Fortunately, it's priced accordingly at just $69.99 on a two-year contract after rebates, and it's available today.
