In addition, the Haven comes with health and well-being features like a form for taking note of medical conditions, a fitness trainer, a reminder app, and songs for the sole purpose of stress relief. Speakerphone, voice commands, voice mail, a photo gallery, and text messaging are also onboard.

The Samsung Haven is now open for preorders, and will hit retail and online shelves on July 29 for $39.99 with a new two-year contract.
