Samsung Renown’s launch and availability date on Verizon revealed

A tough-looking new Samsung phone for globetrotting Verizon Wireless customers will become available in a few weeks. It’s equipped with a 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, 2.3-inch LCD and microSD card slot. The handset, to be officially called the Samsung Renown, will launch on November 19th and be sold in Verizon stores by December 1st.

The Samsung Renown will come in a bronze-colored clamshell outfit that looks tough as heck. There’s a slew of messaging and VZW services available on-board, including VZ Navigator, V Cast Music with Rhapsody and V Cast Video, and it should be useful almost anywhere around the world with a quadband GSM radio. Just the perfect thing for jet-setters.

As mentioned above, those who are looking to buy the Samsung Renown should watch out for December 1st, and prepare to plunk $179.99 aside from signing up for a two-year contract.

    I wish Samsung would deploy the latest version of Windows Mobile. Or at least use a more organized main page skin. I always find the styling of Windows Mobile to be extremely cluttered and unintuitive
