>>I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the Samsung Messager Touch for US Cellular. It is a touch screen phone. On the front here is a 2.6-inch QVGA touch screen display as you can see here. You get up to three customizable home screens of which you can customize with the Samsung touchless interface on the bottom here. Just tap on the gear icon and you will reveal a touchless interface where you can drag and drop widgets and shortcuts to the home screen. At the bottom of each home screen are shortcuts to the phone dialer, the contacts list and other shortcuts menu as well as the main menu. On the back is a 2.0-megapixel camera. You can slide the display sideways to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard as you can see here is pretty roomy and the keys are raised above the surface for easy texting and dialing. Features of the phone include the aforementioned 2.0-megapixel camera and camcorder. You also get stereo Bluetooth on here as well as a typical text and multi-media messaging features. The Samsung Messager Touch is available for $49.99 with a two-year service agreement with US Cellular. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the first look at the Samsung Messager Touch.
The Samsung Finesse is a great touch-screen phone and a solid choice for MetroPCS customers.
The Samsung Freeform II brings Metro PCS a more polished-looking multimedia messaging phone.
The Samsung Gravity T is overall a great messaging phone option for those who want a full touch-screen experience combined with a simple yet functional multimedia feature set.
The Samsung SCH-u740's dual-flip design and QWERTY keyboard are great for text-messaging fans, and its impressive features seal its deal as one of Verizon's strongest multimedia handsets.
The Samsung Caliber could use some refinements, but it is overall a decent touch-screen multimedia phone for U.S. Cellular.
At CTIA 2009, Kent German takes a First Look at the Samsung Impression, a new messaging phone from AT&T that features a slide design, a QWERTY keyboard, and a big, bright touch screen.
We wouldn't call the Samsung JetSet a "full-fledged music phone," but if you're looking for a functional handset that makes calls and plays tunes on the side then it's not a bad choice.
The Samsung Stride is an affordable entry-level flip phone for U.S. Cellular customers.
The Samsung Messager may not be great at multimedia, but it's still a very good messaging phone for MetroPCS.
The Rumor Touch has a nice 3.0-inch touch-screen display, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and a unique interface that puts text-and-multimedia-messaging center stage.
Samsung Messager Touch SCH-R630 - black (U.S. Cellular) Review
The good: The Samsung Messager Touch has an ergonomic and compact design, a full QWERTY keyboard, a 2.0-megapixel camera, and good call quality. We also like that it has 3.5mm headset jack.
The bad: The Samsung Messager Touch's camera has mediocre photo quality. There's also no quick access to the e-mail or browser applications.
The bottom line: The Samsung Messager Touch's touch screen and keyboard make it a great multimedia messaging handset for U.S. Cellular.
