Verizon Wireless Unleashes the Samsung Gleam

Hot on the path of its recent announcement of their Holiday phones, Verizon Wireless has unveiled another new mobile phone, the Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700). The Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700) is a clamshell phone with a metallic bronze and black housing. The Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700)features a living wallpaper which changes with the time of day. The Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700)also sports a 240 x 320 pixel internal display and 96 x 96 pixel external display, 2 mega pixel built-in digital camera with recording capabilities and Bluetooth with stereo headset profile. Battery life of the Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700)can last up to 3.5 hours of talk time and 250 hours of stand-by time.

Another nice looking phone from Samsung. My only reservations about the Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700) is that it doesn't have FM radio and embedded Java Games, and no document viewer. Basically, the Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700) is just a basic phone with good looks. The Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700)works on Verizon's EvDO networks so it should work with Verizon's V Cast services.

Is it just me or does the Samsung Gleam look kinda like the Nokia 6555? Jeez, the more phones these companies churn out, the less innovative their designs are. The Samsung Gleam (SCH-U700) is now available a Verizon Wireless for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
