Alias 2 coming to Verizon on May 11th
Thanks to a little birdie, we've heard that the Samsung Alias 2 U750 is due to be released by Verizon on May 11th. Unfortunately, exact pricing isn't known at this point, but is expected to be around $100-$130 after rebate on a 2 year contract. (We'll keep checking on the price!) The most interesting feature will be the e-ink QWERTY keyboard, which changes between numbers and letters depending on how the dual-hinged 2.6" QVGA display is opened.

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.
