Finding a way to simultaneously follow the trends and blaze a new trail is US Cellular, the American provider who has decided to snatch up the Samsung Delve. It’s pretty easy to mistake the Delve for the Samsung Instinct, seeing how both cell phones lack a physical keyboard and opt for a very similar form factor.
While the Samsung Instinct boasts touch-sensitive controls under the touchscreen display, the Samsung Delve appears to have three physical buttons instead. The rest of the specs are pretty much on par, offering you a 3.0-inch touchscreen, virtual QWERTY keyboard, 2 megapixel camera, HTML browser, and stereo Bluetooth. The Delve also gets equipped with US Cellular’s navigation software and Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface. The threaded email and SMS are pretty nice too.
The hidden ninjas are pointing toward a mid-November launch for the Samsung Delve. No word on pricing.
