(Credit: Verizon)In addition to the red Motorola Krzr K1m Fire and the LG Strawberry Chocolate, Verizon released a non-Valentine cell phone to their lineup, the Samsung SCH-u340. Verizon has been a popular choice for those who want basic cell phones, and the new Samsung SCH-u340 is no exception. Featuring pared-down basics like a VGA camera and a speakerphone, the SCH-u340 still has text and multimedia messaging, instant messaging, and more. But the best feature of all is its price: Free with a two-year contract.
Is this a real RoboCop?
The K5 robot, developed by Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Knightscope, is designed to be a surveillance robot for law enforcement, private security firms, schools and anything else looking for an extra set of eyes and ears on the ground.

CNET's Kara Tsuboi got a closer look at what makes the K5 robot tick.
