Samsung U710 Swings Both Ways

Illustration for article titled Samsung U710 Swings Both Ways

It's not often you find a phone that goes both ways, yet that's exactly what the forthcoming SCH-U710 does. This kinky bidirectional clamshell flips open like a typical clamshell and also likes to be opened horizontally from the side. The phone sports a set of external music controls along with a microSD slot, Bluetooth, and EV-DO. The phone's menu is said to support visual themes (nice for a change) and there's also talk of a 3.2-megapixel cam. The QWERTY keypad looks a little too small for our giant paws and the phone's love handle (on the left) looks awkward for texting, but otherwise we're liking what we see. Click through to check it out for yourself.

This looks like the mpx300 that Motorola cancelled a few years back...but I don't understand why this wouldn't be a smartphone, it just doesn't make any sense to have a full keypad on a non-smartphone, at least not in landscape mode.

They could be pushing this to the texting generation, who have no need for a smart phone. Just give them a phone with extended texting capabilities (qwerty keyboard) and they're on their way.
