Verizon prepares all-black version of the Samsung SCH-U740
Although this is not our favorite phone, there are people who like the U740 and its dual-hinged design that allows for using it as either regular clamshell or as a phone with QWERTY keyboard, once you open it side-ways. But one of the things most people don’t like about it is the light color of the housing, which is the only one Verizon currently offers. This will end soon, as the CDMA carrier is preparing an all-black colored version of the Samsung U740. Otherwise identical in specifications and hardware, the black U740 should be available soon as it already appeared on the Verizon Testman site.

This is probably photoshoped, but it would give a good idea of what the phone looks like. I hear there are dummies of the black u740 in some circuit city stores. Let's wait and see
