Verizon to Launch Samsung Trance U490 on April 24
The Samsung Trance U490 handset is rumored to be released on provider Verizon on April 24th, BGR reported on Thursday. The mid-level slider will have audio specialist Bang & Olufsen's ICEpower hardware and related sound processing software, and will be capable of streaming music to two separate Bluetooth stereo connections simultaneously. The dual-band CDMA phone sports a 2.1-inch, 176x220 display and has a 1.3-megapixel camera. It has just 1GB of internal memory, but can be expanded via a microSD card slot.

According to BGR, Samsung Trance will be available from Verizon starting April 24 (two weeks after the Touch Diamond). It will cost $49.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate, or $219.99 sans contract.

All in all, Samsung Trance U490 seems to be a decent music handset (too bad for the rather low display resolution).

All times are GMT +5.5. The time now is 01:17 PM.
