Samsung U740 Clamshell Flips Two Ways for Bell Mobility

Messaging enthusiasts in Canada now have another option to get their QWERTY fix without hopping into the smartphone market. The Samsung U740 is a dual-hinged clamshell that flips up like a conventional phone when you need it to, but it also flips to the side to reveal a QWERTY keyboard.

Available now through Bell Mobility, the Samsung U740 is very similar to the D307, except it boasts a CDMA radio and a thinner profile. Other vital goodies include high-speed EVDO, music player, memory card expansion, Bluetooth, location-based services, dual color displays, external music controls, and a 1.3 megapixel camera.

Tie yourself down to a contract with Bell and you can nab the Samsung U740 for $150. If you’re not into commitments, then this flipping-two-ways handset will cost you $380.
