Verizon introduced a new phone to its lineup today, the Samsung Haven.
This is the successor to the Samsung Knack and is a rather unassuming featurephone that will cost you $40 with a new 2-year contract.
It features the once-ubiquitous clamshell design and average specs by today’s standards.
Here are the quick details:
- 2.2″ 176×220 internal screen and a 1.07″ 96×96 external display
- dedicated ICE (In Case of Emergency) buttons
- 16 MB of RAM and 64 MB of ROM
- dual band CDMA (800/1900) with CDMA 2000 1x RTT data
- Dimensions: 100 x 51 x 18 mm
- Weight: 99 g
It also has very easy to read key legends and customizable font size throughout the UI, which may make it a perfect choice for those who don’t quite have 20/20 vision anymore. Combine these with the ICE keys, four different healing music selections to help relieve stress, and a medical information application that lets users make medical notes and stores their information such as allergies and medications, and you may have a good phone for the elderly.
It’s also probably a good fit for those more interested in phone calls than any other features a phone may have. It’s decently priced for people who haven’t gotten into the smartphone mania.
You can order it from Verizon starting today and deliveries will start on July 29th.
