Verizon launched Motorola Rapture and Samsung Sway
As it was expected, Verizon Wireless today launched a couple of new phones, the Motorola Rapture VU30 and the cheaper Samsung Sway slider.

The Motorola Rapture clamshell is advertised as a phone that “will get you noticed”, thanks to its “unique” rounded design and jewel-like keypad. It has a 1.6” external display with a line of touch sensitive shortcuts, which conceals when inactive, similar to the European MOTO U9 model. Other features include 2-megapixel camera, 2.2-inch QVGA internal display, microSD card slot, stereo Bluetooth and 2.5mm jack. It costs $130 after a $50 rebate with a 2-year contract.

The Samsung Sway comes in at almost half, priced at $70 after rebate with a 2-year contract. It is a slider but also has 2.2” QVGA display, 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth and microSD slot.Unfortunately, it is missing EVDO, which means that data (mobile web, VZ Navigator) has to use the slower 1x network.

UPDATE: Verizon also announced the budget Motorola MOTO VU204. It features 1.8" 176x220 main display, VGA camera, Bluetooth and 2.5mm headset jack. It will be available on October 14.
