Thanks to one of our ninjas we got word that the Samsung Trance U490 will launch via all available channels on April 24th. The Trance is a mid-level, music-centric offering that is a nice replacement for the aging Samsung Juke. Music playback on the Trance will be powered by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower sound technology and includes a novel music sharing feature that allows playback on two simultaneous Bluetooth stereo connections. In addition to its impressive music capabilities, the Trance also packs the following into its slider form factor:

  • Sync Music from PC to Phone, Over the Air Music Downloads are not Supported

Keeping with its mid-level status, the Trance will retail for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a 2-year contract, $119.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a 1 year contract or $219.99 for full retail.
