Samsung Knack at Verizon

Verizon today quickly followed up on leaked data with a release on Monday of the Samsung Knack. The flip phone is there for users who want just a basic phone and makes its primary features those suited to inexperienced users or the elderly: the device has a built-in 911 button as well as an ICE (In Case of Emergency) button that provides a trio of essential contacts for just the user, such as a family member or a physician.

The larger-than-average buttons also have a unique tactile feel that Verizon claims makes it possible to find buttons by touch rather than sight. Phone functions themselves are basic with 1X RTT data, a speakerphone and voice recognition as the most advanced features.

Verizon is making the Knack available today for $40 when joined to a two-year contract.
