Six years after launching the Samsung Uproar - the country's first MP3 phone - Sprint today announced the Samsung UpStage, a CDMA version of the Samsung's F300 "Ultra Music" phone. The UpStage has a unique design with a "phone side" and a "music side". Each side has its own display, and the music side features touch-sensitive controls. The UpStage weighs in at 2.57 ounces and 0.37 inches thick. Features include stereo Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel camera, speech dictation, and a memory card slot (64 MB card included.) The phone comes with a unique "battery wallet" that protects the phone and extends battery life. The UpStage is also the first phone to include Sprint's Music manger software for easily transferring non-DRM music files from a PC to the phone via USB. The UpStage will be available in early April.

Whats the intial thoughts on the design of this phone?
It is very ugly. I only like that it's very thin compared to other music phones.
i love it... its different and may buy this out right if the reviews are right and replace my 9000
Screen on the 'phone side' might be small for texting or web browsing. I'll give it a chance though and check it out.
...
My question is:

So you want to set it down. Which side do you rest it on?

I'm gettin' one!!!

So many people who post on here will take one look and try to pick it apart and just focus on the negatives (why so slim, why srpint, why not gsm, why is it black, why cant it be free, etc).. I have to say, being a Sprint customer for almost 10 years(and 5 of those as an employee), I have used almost every phone Sprint has offered, and still prefer Samsung software/phones. I recently bought a RAZR to replace my Samsung 920 (wanted to see what all the fuss was about) - bit of a dissapointment. I like the slim size, but desperately miss the Samsung smooth UI, bug-free software, media player, stereo speakers, and ease of use/tools. This 620 seems like the answer to all my prayers! Its beautiful, slim, media-progressive, and I just know it...

I know it brotha, im an employee 2 and ive had my samsung a920 for over a year with no problems, i could upgrade whenever i want but i dont see a reason 2! That Razr and Krazr aint worth the hype!!!

Hrmm...

It's rather nice looking, however, the problem that I worry about is damage to the phone. This is most certainly a product that you do not want to drop.

The other interesting question I have is: How on earth to you produce a case for it that actually protects the phone?
looks like the perfect candidate for total equiptment protection

wtf is a 'battery wallet'?

does it help you pay for the phone Laughing ?
it charges the phone in a small leather case. saves you money on a case though
