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.
