Do you like descriptive names? Sure, it’s fun hearing about the Dell Streak or the BlackBerry Curve, but these names don’t really tell you anything about what these devices do. Bucking that trend is the Samsung Messenger, a phone designed with messaging in mind. How appropriate.
Even though people seem to be more interested in Windows Phone 7 Series these days, new handsets are still being developed with Windows Mobile 6.5 in tow. The Samsung Messenger is one such phone, doing the Microsoft dance alongside its QWERTY keyboard and 2.6-inch 320×320 display.
Taking on a slightly slicker appearance than the Samsung Blackjack series, the Samsung Messenger also comes with a 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, speakerphone, microSD expansion, and a super thin profile.
Also known as the GT-B7330 (not as descriptive), the Samsung Messenger will be made available through Bell Mobility starting this week. Rogers is picking it up too, but Canada’s big red isn’t launching the Messenger until May 4th. Telus will follow suit later this year. Pricing is set at $300 without a contract on Bell or $0 with a 2 year plan.
