Verizon's Samsung Gem

We first saw pics of a Verizon-branded Samsung Gem (OK, of a dummy unit) back in February, but today new pictures, including what looks like retail packaging, have surfaced.  Alltel, U.S. Cellular, and Bluegrass Cellular already offer the Gem, which is a mid-range device sporting a 3.2-inch WQVGA display, an 800 MHz CPU and Android 2.2, so this one isn't an exclusive.  The good news is that we're pretty sure it won't be Binged, and for those interested it should be available soon from Big Red.  When and if Verizon has anything official to say, we'll let you know.  [Chris Ziegler]
