Feb 11 2004 - 10:23 AM ET | Verizon Wireless
Verizon Wireless announced yesterday that it is selling the Samsung SPCH-a610. The phone has a 180º swivel screen, although not an automatic one like the Motorola V80. bq. "A standout in the camera phone genre, the SCH-a610 features Samsung’s unique rotating flip design. The phone’s upper screen swivels 180 degrees at the phone’s midsection, giving consumers the option of turning the main screen to face outward, serving as an external color display. With the screen in this position, users can instantly identify callers via picture caller ID or easily take VGA-quality pictures in landscape mode." You can get this phone today at Verizon Wireless retail outlets nationwide for $179.99 after a $50 rebate and 2-year contract.
