Alias 2 coming to Verizon on May 11th
This article contains unofficial information.
Here is a snipit from how Verizon describes the phone...
The new Samsung Alias 2 gives you the convenience of a QWERTY keypad in a unique flip-style format. It has the same dual-hinge design that made original Alias a hit, but Alias 2 adds a touch of magic a Magic Key keypad using e-ink technology. In phone mode, you see a standard phone keypad. In texting mode, however, the keys magically change into a full, four-row QWERTY keypad. But the magic doesnt stop there. The Alias 2 also has a 2.6 QVGA screen for crisper, clearer viewing, a 2.0 megapixel camera, and dedicated hot keys for one-touch access to some of your most used features like Bluetooth, text messaging, voicemail, camera, voice commands, games and alarms.

that e-ink thing is new. if that tech works well that will be a fun selling point that will help. now if they would have added an HTML browser, which is nearly unforgivable to not have at this point of the game, it would be sold even more.

Retail prices vary per store, and is based on what each store purchases them for (at least with indirect locations).

I guess its because this phone is directed mainly towards teens. If this is like any other VZW phone there should be other themes to go with it.

Even the original GOLD Alias had BT Stereo support. No reason to think this one WON'T. They could have added higher resolution on the camera as well as an HTML browser to really compete with the Voyager 2 coming soon.
