Samsung Gem

It's been seen on Alltel, Bluegrass Cellular and deep inside Verizon stores, and now US Cellular has the Samsung Gem. As you'll recall, it's a mid-range 3.2-inch (WQVGA display) Android 2.2 device with a 3.2MP camera and 800MHz processor.

The Gem will be available on April 1 for a mere $29.99 after $80 mail-in rebate. [US Cellular]

The aren't always plain but when they are it's because they're not worth the resources to customize.

Ironic, eh?

Cellular South carries it too. See no mention of that anywhere on the site.

Pfft available at verizon (agents exclusive I think) for $1. It has been available for a few weeks now and is typical samsung. Nice hardware, terrible software, ie buggy, freezes up all the time.
