Samsung's Style Phones 2007
The "Gleam" was just released for Verizon. It could be interpreted answer to LG's VX-8700, known in its European incarnations as a "Shine" phone. Indeed, the Gleam matches the Shine clamshell in nearly every spec and feature.
The Gleam shouldn't be dismissed, though. It is a well-spec'd phone in a very thin body. The keypad looks odd, but in practice it's perfectly pleasant to use. The Gleam is one of the first phones in the US with what Samsung calls a "living" home screen. It's essentially a type of active standby with various clever visual cues for the status of the battery, message inbox, etc. A cloudy sky means your battery is low, etc. On the Gleam, it's implemented in a car dashboard design.
