Verizon offers mobile TV with Samsung U620


What do you get when you take a Samsung D600, CDMA-ize it, and toss in MediaFLO mobile TV? Apparently the answer is the Samsung U620 destined for Verizon’s shelves. It is set to run V CAST Mobile TV (Verizon’s take on MediaFLO), providing you with high quality video without weird buffering lags and the like.

Naturally, the U620 latches onto Verizon’s high-speed EV-DO network. Other key specs include stereo Bluetooth, microSD expansion, speech to text voice recognition, and a 1.3 megapixel camera (a downgrade from the 2.0MP on the D600). That and, well, it looks sort of like the Drift that Helio is getting.

In related news, Verizon is also grabbing the Samsung U740 dual-hinged clamshell. This QWERTY-rocking device keeps a slim profile while boasting EV-DO, 1.3 megapixel autofocus camera, Bluetooth, and microSD.
