The Samsung F700, or U940, has just been FCC-approved, meaning that it's going to make its way to Verizon really really soon. We don't have full specs yet, but it seems that the 5-megapixel camera has been cut down to 2-megapixels, but the 150MB of internal memory and microSD slot remains. It doesn't look like it's much of a smartphone, but that might be a good thing. [Phonemag]

Don't single out Verizon for crippling camera features; all US providers do it. That said, I'll only get this phone if it doesn't have the VZW UI. I know the chances between this are somewhere between "slim" and "snowball in Lucifer's asshole," but a man has to be able to dream.

That said, I'm pretty sure all US cell phone providers have a size limit when it comes to sending images, so I doubt they're overly concerned about the bandwidth getting clogged. I think it's more an issue of "this is cheaper for us, but we're sure as shit not going to pass any savings on to you."

I can't wait until next year, when Verizon (presumably) opens up their network and I never have to walk into one of their stores again. It's not like they ever know anything I don't anyway.
