Shocker: A slim slider phone from Samsung

Verizon's Samsung Sway follows a Samsung design standard.

Verizon's new Samsung Sway Samsung

It's clear that Samsung loves two things: slim slider phones and midrange camera phones with a flip design. Indeed, we've seen a deluge of such models over the last few years, with the latest in the slider camp being the Samsung SCH-U650.

Also called the Sway, (why, we're not quite sure), the SCH-U650 has a tried-and-true Samsung design. It's thin, silver, and attractive, but it wouldn't stand out in the cell phone crowd. It debuts October 14 on Verizon Wireless for $69.99 with a two-year contract and a mail-in rebate.

The Sway's features include a 2-megapixel camera, video recording, Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, instant messaging, personal organizer options, text and multimedia messaging, and a speakerphone.
