“Verizon Wireless and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile)1 announced the addition of two new phones to Verizon Wireless’ robust portfolio of global phones – the Samsung RenownTM and the Samsung SagaTM The Saga is a smartphone that features a 2.55″ advanced touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard that provides business professionals with an easy way to send e-mail, text and instant messages. This productivity powerhouse is equipped with Quad Band GSM/GPRS capability, an optical mouse, Wi-Fi access (802.11 b/g), Opera mobile browser and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional to keep customers connected to their offices when they are at home and abroad.”
Hopefully the Saga won’t simply “be a a medieval Icelandic or Norse prose narrative of achievements and events in the history of a personage, family, etc” but will be an honest to goodness Windows Mobile device that brings some options to those on VZW. Opera is getting bundled more and more these days, and for good reason. Now if VZW can simply find a way to charge by the keypress, they’d be all set.
