First images of the Samsung Trance U490
It seems that every few days new information about Samsung Trance is leaked. Today we received some exclusive images of the Trance, confirming that it will be a slider with a hidden numeric keypad and a touch control pad, similar to the LG Venus. The images also show that there will be a 3.5mm headset jack, which we're very glad to see, and a microSDHC card slot. The rear of the phone shows one large speaker at the top, but we don't see any Bang & Olufsen branding. Unlike the Juke, the Trance will have a Mobile Web 2.0 browser, but will still lack EVDO for data. The device is expected out sometime in Q2. Hopefully it will be on display at CTIA later this month.

If you have some interesting info that you'd like to share with us, feel free to Tip Us!

This is replacing the Juke? Personally, I think the Juke had a better design, even thought it was flawed.
