Review: Samsung Convoy 2
The Convoy 2 uses Opera Mini to help boost the mobile web performance. The Verizon home page loads with nine shortcuts (Opera Mini's Speed Dial feature) to content destinations such as Facebook, CNN, and ESPN. It also has a URL bar at the top, as well as a Bing search bar. It's nice to have the URL bar visible from this home page. Verizon used to force people to jump through hoops to leave Verizon's own web pages.
The Convoy 2’s browser was consistently good when it came to speed. Web sites loaded without making me angry most of the time, but when under less-than-optimal network conditions it was definitely slower.
Once they arrive, web sites look decent enough, and the Convoy 2 provides enough screen real estate for viewing content.

The Convoy 2 lets users adjust the typical set of items, such as wallpapers, ringtones, alert tones, etc. Nothing too exciting.
