Samsung Gloss features a 2.2-inch QCIF display and uses US Cellular’s “easyedge” service to connect customers to “Your Navigator with voice turn by turn directions, news and weather applications, games and hundreds of other useful applications.”
Samsung and US Cellular have just launched their latest QWERTY flip-phone for the mass market. The new Samsung Gloss, as it’s called, combines a QWERTY keyboard with a fashionable flip form-factor that absolutely oozes estrogen. As such, the squat Samsung Gloss’s flowery designs and Pink color probably won’t find too many homes in male pockets. Instead, we’ll likely see the Samsung Gloss bringing its 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth and QWERTY keyboard to purses across the country.
It’s obvious that the Samsung Gloss isn’t going to be doing any of the heavy-lifting that its smartphone cousins are capable of, but with a decidedly feminine appeal and full QWERTY keyboard packed into a convenient flip-phone package, the Gloss will probably carve out a nice little niche for itself.
