Verizon will be adopting the SCH-U740, a scaled-down version of the Samsung U710. Both units share QWERTY keyboards, and a rotatable screen that can function in portrait or landscape mode, but the U740 is limited to a 1.3MP camera instead of a 3.2. The phone does however feature Bluetooth, WAP 2.0 web browsing, EVDO broadband with VCAST music and video, and a microSD slot for holding audio, photo, and video files. The display renders 262,000 colors at 176x220. The U740 should be available with Verizon by the end of the year. Click through to see full-size images.
