Leaked Verizon papers confirm May 11th launch for Samsung Alias 2 at $79.99
BGR got a hold of the launch details for the Samsung Alias2 from someone inside Verizon. The treasure trove of info it revealed basically confirmed our earlier report that the device will be launched on May 11th. The handset will be priced at $79.99 after a mail-in rebate with a two-year contract, $149 after a $50 mail-in rebate for a one year deal or $249 off contract according to the leaked papers.

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.
