What sets the Alias 2 apart from other phones is the keyboard that features E-ink technology. In portrait mode, the keypad is arranged to make phone calls; in landscape, it becomes a QWERTY keyboard for email and texting. The Alias 2 is also equipped with a 2.6 inch display that will allow you to see the pictures you take with the 2MP camera which doubles as a camcorder for shooting videos. The mobile web is supported as is email, IM, chat and VZ Navigator. Along with the latter service, Visual Voice Mail can be added for a monthly fee.
We have heard from our source inside Verizon that the Samsung Alias 2 is an impressive device that should be a big seller for the carrier. From what we've seen, that looks to be a very strong possibility.
