Samsung FlipShot Price Increase
Even though the FlipShot is the only 3MP cameraphone in Verizon's line-up, we were not impressed by its image quality, as shown by our recent cameraphone comparison where the V9m and Voyager came out on top. We also believe that the Voyager is clearly the better buy (at $299) than the FlipShot, considering it includes a large 2.5" touch screen, QWERTY Keypad, Mobile TV capable, and can support up to 8GB microSDHC cards. The V9m (at $249) is also a better deal, since its camera images ranked 1st place and the call quality is excellent.
We're not sure why Verizon decided to raise the price of the FlipShot, but we can only guess that they will not sell as many as the
Voyager and V9m.
