US Cellular added a new texter-friendly feature phone to its portfolio – the Samsung Profile SCH-r580. It’s a mid-range device packing both a numeric keypad and full side-sliding QWERTY keyboard, making it ideal for those who like to chit chat with their buddies while on the go. Social networking clients are also there, making the Profile even more appealing to the new generation of always connected folks (or that’s kids).
Rest of the specs include EV-FO data, 2.4-inch QVGA display, 2-megapixel camera, GPS, Bluetooth, media player, web browser, and 100MB of internal memory that is further expandable with microSD cards.
In addition to US Cellular, Samsung’s phone is also offered by two other carriers in the States – Sprint is selling it under the name of Samsung Restore, while MetroPCS is calling the device Samsung Messager III.
As for the pricing, US Cellular asks $39.99 for the Profile after a $50 mail-in rebate. You can grab it from here.
