Verizon to announce a Gusto II feature phone, pre-paid Jetpack 4G hotspot?
Remember the Samsung Gusto? If not, we cannot blame you as it is just a pretty basic phone that Verizon released over a year and a half ago. Interestingly, it now seems that a successor is in the works and will be known as the Gusto II. Word comes from a tipster of ours – a Verizon store employee, who kindly shared with us an internal email as proof.

We don't really know much about the Gusto II yet, but we would be surprised if it is anything more than a feature phone. As far as pricing is concerned, we doubt that getting one would put a dent in anyone's budget.

But wait, there's more, as they say in those annoying commercials. Verizon might soon start offering its Jetpack 4G portable hotspot with a pre-paid plan. Again, details such as pricing and features are not disclosed, but our guess is that the device will be similar, if not identical, to the Jetpack that was unveiled in January during CES, and the only difference will be in the way customers pay for the service.

Thanks for sending this in!
