Samsung's Alias 2 Lands at Verizon Wireless
Today Samsung and Verizon Wireless announced the Alias 2. The Alias 2 (U750) is a second take on the original messaging phone that brings with it a major revision to the QWERTY keyboard. It retains the dual-hinge, but uses e-ink for the keyboard rather than traditional buttons. When the Alias 2 is opened like a traditional clamshell, the e-ink shows a regular numeric dialpad. When it is opened sideways, the e-ink transforms into a full QWERTY keyboard. The Alias 2 also has a 2 megapixel camera with video capture, Bluetooth with A2DP support, visual voicemail, and support for 16GB microSD cards. The Alias 2 is available today for $80 after rebates with new agreement.
