Sprint's Samsung UpStage remains one of the most interesting cell phones introduced this year. With its dual-sided design, it certainly stands out among the cell phone crowd. True, not everyone will love the constant flipping motion, but you have to give Samsung props for originality.

Today the UpStage received a breath of fresh air when Sprint and Samsung introduced a new version in bright red. All the features are the same, and you can get it from the bargain-basement price of $99 starting June 18.
