Verizon Wireless and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) has announced that the Samsung Zeal™, a dual-hinge messaging phone in a unique, flip-style format with an E Ink technology transforming the QWERTY keypad, will be available online at www.verizonwireless.com and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores on Nov. 11.
So the Samsung Zeal is basically a dual-hinged messaging phone. The phone also has a dual-screened design. The phone uses e-ink for some of its hardware like the keyboard. Which I think is kind of a good idea in a way, but I think physical buttons with maybe some e-ink would be good. Kind of like the Optimus Maximus keyboard.
It also has a 2MP camera with night and panorama shot, auto focus and camcorder, Bluetooth, corporate email support, a social beat widget, VZ Navigator, media player and even support for Skype Mobile. Users can add a microSD card if you want to carry your media around. The Zeal will be available on Nov. 11 for $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement, and pre-sales are open now.
