Ultra-slim Samsung Sway released by Verizon

Verizon Wireless’ line-up of music phones has just been enlarged today, with the addition of Samsung Sway. 

The phone is a slider that looks pretty and has a thickness of only 0.47 inches. This means a bit less than 12 millimeters, and I don’t think there are too many sliders to beat that.

Due to its rather fragile appearance and its slimness, Samsung Sway will probably be more popular among girls and women (yes, we like our phones to be thin). But this can’t upset Verizon or Samsung, as long as the phone’s sales will be good, right?     

 

Here’s what the full-specs list of Samsung Sway includes: 

  • 2.2 inches TFT display with 240 x 320 pixels, 262K colors
  • Music Player
  • V CAST Music with Rhapsody for access to more than 5 million songs
  • Stereo Bluetooth, USB
  • VZ Navigator
  • 2.0 MP camera with night shot mode, video
  • Mobile Web 2.0 capable
  • Instant Messaging, text, picture and video messaging
  • MicroSD card support, up to 8GB
  • 270 minutes of talk-time, 312 hours of stand-by time
  • weighs 3.56 ounces
  • measures 4.15 x 1.96 x 0.47 inches

Samsung Sway will cost you $69.99 after the signing of a 2-yr agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate. You can also buy the phone with a 1-yr contract, for $139.99, or with a month-to-month contract, for $239.99.

    the idea that only women like slim phones is ridiculous. Men don't carry purses and most don't want a huge chunk bulging out of their pocket.

    Yeah. It's not a fact of women like little phones and men like big ones.
    I for one (me being a guy) don't want to be carrying around a brick phone in my pocket.

    This is a nice phone, and the style doesn't appear to be feminine at all?

    I am happy with this phone with the exception of the battery life. The main reason I got a new phone (and contract) was because my 2-year old phone could not maintain a charge. However, it was doing better than this phone. I work 12 hour shifts and do not talk a lot on the phone. Yet, I am plugging it into the car charger by 1 or 2 o'clock even though it was fully charged before leaving the house. And, yes, one thing that really attracted me to this phone was that it was less than 1/2″ thick, therefore fits inside my pocket easily without being bulky. I am an officer with limited space on my duty belt.
