Last time you saw the SCH-u900, it was fugly. Now, gussied up and ready for the holidays, the u900 makes its Verizon Wireless debut in red and black with a new nickname, the FlipShot. The 3.0-megapixel camphone replaces the now defunct a990 with a thinner body and a new rounded-edge look. It's got what you'd expect from a high-end feature phone: EV-DO, GPS with VZ Navigator, and Bluetooth—stereo audio, dial-up networking, serial port and object push for vCard, plus basic print and image profiles. The black version starts selling on Verizon's website today, while the seductive red model will only be available at Best Buy, beginning 11/26. Total cost for this baby will be $200, after you sign your life away for one-fifth of a decade, of course. [Verizon Wireless]

You know, I only have a cheap Samsung flip phone, but one thing I love about it is my ability to easily open, close, and dial the phone one handed. I wish these manufacturers would stop trying so hard to make the phones look stylish and do more to make them useable. I know seeing people using their iphones makes me cringe because they have to constantly use both hands and stare directly at it since they can't actually feel where the buttons are. As a media device and such I'm sure it rocks, but as a useable phone it blows. And despite the fact that THIS phone is a flip version, it doesn't look easy to open.
