Samsung has unveiled a cell phone that supports multimedia service for third-generation networks.

Samsung is teaming up with Verizon Wireless--which will debut its V Cast multimedia service next month--to market its new SCH-a890 phone.

The phone, which has a 260,000-color display, offers a rotating 1.3-megapixel digital camera with features such as zoom, a self-timer and a flash.

The phone will support a range of multimedia applications, including video on demand. People will be able to watch video clips developed for the V Cast service by networks including Comedy Central, Fox, MTV and NBC.

Starting Tuesday, Verizon Wireless customers will be able to get the Samsung phone for $249 (after a $70 rebate) with a two-year agreement.

Verizon Misses It Again!
Verzion is comming out with this really cool 3G product and is missing the mark but not offering Video company news releases. Eworldwire is in beta with the video news release product that finally someone is offering which everyone wanted and according to our sales rep at Verizon.

--> Another tech giant taking a step foward then backwards.
