Samsung Robin (SCH-i760) headed for Verizon

According to PC Mag and a retracted press release, the SCH-i760 smartphone (apparently named Robin) that Samsung has been rather tight-lipped about will head directly to Verizon Wireless when it’s released later this year. Passing between many pairs of hands this week at CES, Robin arrived (and remains) without a battery, making it impossible for anyone to see for themselves that her 2.8-inch screen has a resolution of 320 x 240 and can rotate between landscape and portrait modes.

Another thing to make note of is that the i760 is incredibly camera shy. Live shots captured at CES have her looking a bit smudged, with dust in the corners of her screen, and rarely looking directly into the camera. Official press shots, which can be downloaded at this microsite, are of equally less-than-stellar quality: jagged edges and whatnot. In the clearest and therefore best image I could find (above), a close look at the keyboard reveals that it is in fact not Robin, but a body double (likely some disgruntled prototype who came in second).

The Samsung SCH-i760: ever elusive and so beautiful. I want one.
