Samsung announces FlipShot for Verizon


I really don’t know how Samsung can churn out so many phones week after week. This week is no different. Today, Samsung is announcing the FlipShot aka SCH-u900 for Verizon. The FlipShot is a weird looking phone that rotates and pivots, but its feature set is pretty darn cool. It has a business card scanner! The FlipShot supports multiple Bluetooth profiles including mono headset, stereo headset, serial port, dial-up, phonebook access, and you can transfer those handy vCards. A 3-megapixel digital camera goes up to 11-steps digital zoom and you can take 30 second clips for MMS or 10 minute clips. There’s also living wallpapers, PictBridge, a microSD slot and a directional microphone. Battery life is expected to be four hours of talk or six hours with the extended battery. The FlipShot even has a TV out so you can share your pics and videos. There will be a red and black version of the FlipShot. Best Buy will have the red version starting November 26th, but you’ll have to wait until January for the black version to show up at Verizon. The FlipShot will be $199.99 with a two-year contract.
