At the same time, Verizon announced that the Samsung Renown U810 will be available next week, Nov 19th via the Web and Telesales for $179 after $50 rebate, but in-store sales won't begin until Dec 1st. It is a flip phone featuring Dual-band CDMA, Quad-band GSM for international roaming, QVGA display, 2MP camera, Bluetooth, SIM card pre-installed, and microSDHC support up to 8GB. The packaging will include a standard 800mAh battery, user manual with CDs, and a wall charger with 3 adapters for overseas use.

umm..sweet if u like it when vzw forces you to use THEIR 3g network..umm...perhaps NOT taking off Wifi would help save the consumer (s) like $30 a month or so ;-)

Why does Verizon insist upon making some half-way decent phones just horrible by making them in a crappy color? Every other carrier gets the best choices for the color of the phones, and Verizon chooses to make theirs blue? There are great variations of silver/gold/black out there.. and we get blue ...

Im so sick of the att turd burglers that cant read..write..or even compose there own opinion. Please take your head out of att/apples arse! Also Wifi is pointless..hence the reason it's on the iphone. The iphone needs wifi because apples 3g covers mmmm lets see 30% of usa (and thats being generous) when vzw's covers mmm 80%+! The proof is in the pudding and im not talkin about the puddin your packing fan boys!

whine, whine, whine, whine...... pathetic... QQ all of you. Flat out, the saga is a cool phone. It doesn't have the typical direction pad like normal phones, it uses the same kind of technology that laptop touchpads do. You can even turn a mouse function on. Perfect for those people who are upgrading to their first PDA and can't stant that there isn't a mouse. You would almost never need to use a stylus, even though it has that option for those already familiar with WinMo. Just b/c the color is blue, it shouldn't stop you from buying a phone. What if you didn't like black, or silver, or white? There are these very inexpensive things called sticker skins, or silicones cases if you want to change the color. Personally, I like the blue color, it is actually much darker in person, almost a navy blue. So grow the F*** up and stop crying about it. Your precious iGarbage device requires a data plan, too. Go cry about that.

I really like the looks of the phone, and the specs and features look great. Combine that with Verizon's great coverage area, and I think we'll have a real winner here. I ordered one yesterday, I'll post comments after I get to use it next week.

HA HA!!! Don't matter anyways! It requires a $29.99/month data feature as of Nov. 14th! So all you people who want to a "calculator," "organizer," "calander," or "Outlook Push Service" can get bent and leave!!!! No more having your cake and eating it too! No more credits for you losing your WiFi connection and getting charged for using our data service! No more credits since you didn't heed or warning of accidently accessing the data service! What a happy day for VZW!!!! LOL

Can anyone tell me whether it matters if you get a wi-fi enabled phone vs. one without since Verizon makes you buy the data plan anyway? I like the Storm but it has no wi-fi. The Saga does, and I like it as well, but I wonder if it makes any difference in light of the data plan you have to buy.
