As expected, Verizon has now released the Samsung Trance U490
music phone, which is available in Piano Black and Electric Red variations. The main selling point of the slider is the Bang & Olufsen speaker with ICEpower
. Additional features include a 2.1" 176x220 pixel
display, 1.3MP camera, touchpad
navigation, Bluetooth, VCast Music with Rhapsody, multitasking capabilities, 3.5mm headset jack, 1GB of
dedicated internal memory for music plus 16GB microSDHC card support. Unfortunately, data has to use 1X since EVDO is not supported. Pricing is $49.99 after $50 rebate on a 2 year contract or $199.99 after rebate if you go for a 1 year contract.
