The Samsung Sway just swooped into our offices this morning, and so far we’re impressed by what Verizon Wireless’ new superslim handset has to offer. The device reminds us of a cross between the Samsung M520 from Sprint and the Samsung Soul, but without the haptic touch display on the front. A new and revamped user interface provides the same quick access to places like the phone’s Media Center, and Verizon Wireless’ deck services that include the V CAST Music store (side load only with Rhapsody), and VZ Navigator. Unlike other feature-rich phones on Verizon Wireless’ network, though, you’ll need to manually download VZ Navigator from the phone’s Media Center Menu. We originally reported that the phone doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack, and while that remains true, Samsung provides a 2.5mm headphone adapter that doubles as a USB plug for syncing the phone with your computer. In the past, we’ve docked Samsung phones for not including a headphone jack and sometimes not providing a USB cable; this solution solves most of the problem, but we’re still looking forward to the day when Samsung’s flip phones come with a 3.5mm jack. The Sway has a 2-megapixel camera, without flash, but a shot taken during a morning meeting came out sharp overall. You can also shoot 30-second videos for sending, or longer ones for saving to your computer, and there’s plenty of room thanks to the included 256MB microSD Card. If you need more space, the Sway supports up to 8GB of additional storage. Sending off texts on the keyboard this morning was easy and comfortable. The metal keys have a soft bounce to them and are spaced far enough apart for quick two-handed texting. Stay tuned for our full review of the $69.99 Samsung Sway. So far, we’re pleased with what we see. Update: We’re super turned off to learn this device doesn’t support Verizon Wireless’ 3G EV-DO data network, which means all of those over the air services are going to be super super slow to the verge of pointless. No over the air music or video. Cut our excitement in half.
