Not every phone can be a bleeding-edge 1 GHz smartphone, right? Earlier today, Verizon Wireless announced that it would add the Samsung Gusto to its feature phone lineup. The light-weight flip phone sports a 2-inch internal display, VGA camera, mobile web browser, and Bluetooth connectivity. The handset includes “lifestyle features” such as a driving mode (which increases call volume to compensate for road noise), voice commands, and VZ Navigator. The phone also has a neat feature that allows you to setup fake phone calls, as the press release explains: “Fake Call feature – lets customers set up a pseudo call with a timer to manage social situations.” You know… in case you have a social situation that needs managing. Personally, we think owning this phone is a social situation, but that’s just us. The Gusto will run you $19.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
