Verizon Launches Dual-Hinge U740
Feb 14, 2007, 4:24 AM by (staff)
Verizon today launched the Samsung u740, a mid-range phone with a unique dual-hinge design that allows the phone to open like a standard clamshell for phone calls or in landscape orientation for texting and other data functions. Despite this hinge and the fact that it features a full QWERTY thumb-board, it is still quite thin. Some of the keys double as a number pad when the phone is opened for voice calls. The u740 features EV-DO high speed data, Bluetooth, a 1.3 Megapixel camera and Micro SD slot. It is available for $150 with a 2 year contract and rebate.

Good post btw to Karl on Cars or was to MT...
I have the 740 and its ok. There are 2 things about the hinge from using that I can say.
