Samsung U940 Hurdles FCC

Feb 18, 2008, 4:44 PM   by Eric M. Zeman   @zeman_e

Documents seen on the FCC site today revealed the Samsung U940. The U940 is a CDMA version of the Ultra Edition F700. It is a sideways slider that has a full QWERTY keyboard, EV-DO data, Bluetooth and memory card slot. The camera has been downgraded from 5 to 2 megapixels, and there is no word if it is still autofucus or not. The documents show Verizon branding on the phone and also mention compatibility with Sprint's Power Vision services. Neither carrier has officially announced it will carry this device. The GSM version of the phone uses Samsung's Croix touch interface. This CDMA version could have a different user interface to suit carrier needs.

Don't assume, just ask. Sprint actually released pictures of this phone on engagdet.com before anyone else. We will get this phone, hopefully before Verizon but maybe not.

New Wonderful Red UI !!!

I can't wait for a $500 price tag for this phone! It will have all 65,000 shades of red on Verizon's wonderful UI, and do you want to know the best part!?!? IT'S CRIPPLED LIKE EVERY OTHER VERIZON PHONE!!! YEAH!!! I can't wait to camp out and...

Oh wait... I have T-Mobile...

and I get just as good, if not better coverage
than VZW here in Detroit...

and my RAZR2 V8 is completely unlocked...

and I can sync it up to tons of Bluetooth products without a hitch...

and I actually have a Linux based OS running on my phone...

Kind of depressing isn't it? 😉
Hey BrickCrapHouse!!

Your post is rather amusing to say the least!!

Have you had a bad experience with Verizon ??

PROBABLY NOT !!

Just chalk it up to something you & everybody

already knows.

CAN WE SAY DETROIT????
Well God bless you! I hope you have a good life in Detroit and stable employment...
its kind of depressing that you get your paintys all in a ruffle over a Menu.....I can still pair up bluetooth headphones, bluetooth it to cars for music or phone call, bluetooth it to my printer and bluetooth to everything else I want to.....


an...

i'll show some love here.

i agree with you. as much as i love VZW's network and data speeds, the way they cripple there phones sucks. Substitute: Sprint.
honestly i thought i loved VZW when i had them, but i realized the world is a much kinder and peaceful place once i switched to Helio! The menu on VZW phones suck really bad. for the money i spend on phones, i may as well have awesomeNESS from the men...

Most likely Verizon.

This device will most likely be offered by Verizon because as the article mentions FCC documents indicate it has a Verizon logo and according to Phone Arena (http://www.phonearena.com), it is listed under upcoming phones for Verizon. There is no mention of it under upcoming phones for Sprint.

How awesome...

If this came to Sprint, it would be ah-mazing! And is that a touch screen on the front, or what? Also does anyone have an idea of what the price would be on something like this?
$300 minimum with a 2 year...prolly $500 full retail. Look at the price of the voyager or the iphone.
...
Darn It! 😲 I just upgraded to the samsung m520. I guess IF Sprint gets this I will be paying full price. But it seems it will be worth every penny. Its not likely that it will be coming out within the next 2 wks so I will use this til it comes out. ...

not a pda

i have been reaing on all other websites that this phone is like voyager, just has sliding keyboard...whats the deal verizon?
if this was a pda id get rid of my iphone in a minute...
only good pda in my opinion is i760 and bb pearl from verizon. all there others are thick...

wats the deal verizon??????
It's not marketed as a PDA...it's marketed as a QWERTY phone. What's the deal? It's called broadening the horizon's of what is offered. It's called listening to what consumers say they want in a phone (gotta love focus groups). Not everyone wants a...

...
your such a tool... YOU WERE one of those people who bought the iphone not knowing what it was 😛 haha
go back to verizon with your vx10000
...
your i phone ( junk ) is not a pda either.....so why would this make a difference. at least this device is not on dial speed, you get a full 1 year warranty and you can replace the battery or put insurance on it as well.

that alone pwns an i junk

No HTML

Another WAP phone.
i'd actually rather it not be HTML b/c I don't want to switch to the Nationwide Plans and have to be charged per MB opposed to per Min.
