Word just came through that the Samsung Trance will launch on April 24th and will retail for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and 2-year contract signing.  Our partner site wrote about the Trance a few weeks ago and showed off some leaked images as well as the aforementioned launch date.  Now we’ve got the official press shots and specs for your perusal.

Verizon is billing the handset as a music phone and rightfully so since it includes Bang & Olufsen’s ICEpower amp.  It features touchpad navigation, 1GB of storage expandable via microSD card slot, 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth with A2DP, CDMA dual band (800/1900 MHz), 2.1-inch (176×200) screen, 3.5mm headphone jack, 300 hour talk time and is finished in Piano Black or Electric Red.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
