Samsung SCH-A970 reviewed

Samsung SCH-A970C|Net have reviewed Samsung's newly-available-on-Verizon SCH-A970 clamshell. The phone features a 2 megapixel camera, music and video playback, and a transFlash slot for memory expansion. Connectivity is via Bluetooth and EV-DO 3G. They give the phone a 7.3 ("very good") rating, although some reviewers have noted that the phone is fairly unforgiving to novices.

From the review:

Verizon Wireless's latest 3G V Cast phone, the Samsung SCH-A970 is a compelling package of multimedia and communication tools. Along with support for Verizon's high-speed 3G network, the handset offers a 2-megapixel camera/camcorder, an MP3 player with external playback controls, Bluetooth support, and a TransFlash card slot for additional memory. The phone is bulky, however, and its fancy features sometimes fall short, with spotty EV-DO coverage and subpar photo quality. Still, the A970 will tempt those looking for a phone that supports Verizon's high-speed data network. The Samsung SCH-A970 is available for a pricey $349.
