Samsung u430 at Verizon

Samsung Mobile on Tuesday announced it is now offering the Samsung u430 clamshell phone, which features a 1.9-inch, 128x160 main display. The dual-band CDMA phone has a VGA camera capable of capturing images at 640x480 resolution. The camera also includes a 5- or 10-second timer and a Night Shot function that lets it take photos in low-light environments.

Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR support enables the use of wireless headsets and headphones apart from sending or receiving files to compatible nearby devices. The u430 comes with Verizon's VZ Navigator location-based service which allows the phone to act as an assisted GPS navigation device.

An included basic browser and chat capabilities let users stay in touch over Verizon's data network. Voice capabilities let users hear their text messages or names of callers, as well as menus and dialed numbers, while voice dialing is also supported.

The u430 is priced at nearly $80 with a two-year contract, but an online discount reduces that price to $0.
