Samsung Alias 2 for Verizon Wireless retains the original’s uniquely innovative dual-flip form factor with full QWERTY keyboard, but now the keyboard utilizes E Ink technology–the same found in today’s most popular e-book readers. With the E Ink-powered keyboard, the keys can transform from vertical to horizontal depending on your orientation as well as switch from numeric keypad to full keyboard depending on the application in use. Other upgrades include a 2-megapixel camera/camcorder and Bluetooth stereo music streaming
The next generation Samsung Alias 2 dual-hinge messaging phone with the convenience of an E Ink keypad/QWERTY keyboard that transforms depending on function (see all keyboard layouts).
It’s compatible with Verizon’s V Cast Music Service, which enables you to purchase songs through your phone and download them via Verizon’s fast EV-DO data network. You’ll also stay on course thanks to the VZ Navigator GPS turn-by-turn direction service. Other features include MicroSD memory expansion (up to 16 GB), RemoSync capabilities for corporate email and calendar synchronization, Visual Voicemail, access to personal email and instant messaging, personal organizer tools, and up to 5 hours of talk time.
The Samsung Alias 2 has an innovative keypad that takes different forms depending on how you’re using the phone. Its feature set is well-stocked and its overall performance for calls, video, and music is satisfying.
The Samsung Alias 2’s navigation controls take acclimation. The phone lacks Wi-Fi and POP3 e-mail access is limited to a Web-based interface. Also, adding up the various data features is expensive.
The bottom line:
The Samsung Alias 2 is an inventive update to Samsung’s previous messaging phone. Provided you can afford it, and learn how to use it, it’s a powerful messaging device with reliable performance.
Quite fair review, this is exactly what I want to say.
