Verizon Wireless is now the proud carrier of the new purple Samsung Gleam! This new phone is more than just a new color scheme. It has a living wallpaper capability, which allows Verizon Wireless users to view the phone’s status with either an urban or a country view that changes with the time of day. It also features popular multimedia and messaging features including, V Cast Music and Video, Instant Messaging using AIM, MSN and Yahoo and text, picture and video messaging. These are the same features offered on the popular, original bronze Samsung Gleam, which may have proved to be too neutral for the more colorful among us.
The Purple Gleam also has limited Bluetooth technology for certain profiles as well as headset, hands-free, serial port stereo support for music and certain dial-up networking profiles. Some of the Purple Gleam’s other specs include a bilingual interface (English and Spanish) and a personal organizer with calendar, calculator, alarm clock and stopwatch.
The purple Samsung Gleam just launched a few days ago and it sells for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year service agreement.
