>> I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor at CNET.com and this is the Samsung SCHU740 from Verizon wireless. As you can see it's very nice champagne color finish here. On the front there is external screen and touch sensitive music player controls on the front here. It has a 1.3 mega pixel camera lens on the front; on the side here is the hold button, the volume rocker and a charger jack. On the other side here is the micro-ST card slot and a speakerphone button. Now this is where the real magic of this phone lies, you can open it up this way to reveal a really nice screen and a very odd looking quality keyboard, or you can open landscape wise like this where the quality keyboard really make sense. In this way as you can see is a full quality keyboard with typical send and end keys and the dedicated camera button, a voice command button and the, of course the quality keypad right here, but if you turn the phone on its side that number keys are actually grayed out, so they look different from the rest of the keyboard here. Then on the side they just become regular letters for the quality keyboard. One thing to note is that when it's turned portrait wise you can use these two soft keys and in landscape mode, you can use these bottom two soft keys on the bottom here for navigation. As far as features go you know, Verizon's V cast stable is open to you, there is V cast TV, V cast music so you can download music on the go. So a very nice, very functional and very slim phone for Verizon. This is the Samsung SCHU740. ^M00:01:46 [ Music ]

Samsung SCH-u740 - champagne (Verizon Wireless) Review
The good: The Samsung SCH-u740 has a sleek and attractive design with a cool, dual-flip hinge that lets you view the display in either portrait or landscape mode. It has a QWERTY keyboard, access to Verizon's V Cast offerings, and a full array of multimedia goodies.
The bad: The Samsung SCH-u740 lacks a dedicated camera key on the phone's exterior, and the video quality is mediocre. We're also not fans of the touch screen music controls.
The bottom line: The Samsung SCH-u740's dual-flip design and QWERTY keyboard are great for text-messaging fans, and its impressive feature set seals its deal as one of Verizon's strongest multimedia handsets.
