Verizon Wireless Announces Samsung Zeal

Nov 9, 2010, 8:09 AM   by Eric M. Zeman   updated Nov 9, 2010, 8:31 AM

Verizon Wireless today announced the Samsung Zeal, a follow-up device to the Alias 2. Similar to the Alias 2, the Zeal has a dual-hinge design that allows it to open as both a normal clamshell phone and a sideways clamshell phone. The Zeal makes use of an E ink keyboard that changes depending on which way the phone is opened. It offers a standard dial pad when opened vertically, and a QWERTY keyboard when opened sideways. Other features of the Zeal include a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, social networking applications, Microsoft Exchange support, GPS, and support for microSD cards up to 32GB. The Zeal will be available November 11 for $80 after a mail-in rebate.

Samsung's Alias 2 Lands at Verizon Wireless

May 11, 2009, 7:30 AM   by Eric M. Zeman

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.
