Verizon Samsung Alias (Samsung U740)

Verizon Samsung Alias (Samsung U740). It seems, Verizon’s idea behind all the renaming is that users are more comfortable with phone names they can actually remember. A letter followed by two or three numbers may not be that memorable after all.

Following their decision to rename the U940 to Glyde, The CDMA carrier is (sort of) re-introducing the Samsung U740 clamshell as “Alias.”

Apparently it’s the U740’s dual-hinged “nature” that made Verizon use “Alias” as the new name. The device only looks like a “sleek, high–style, high–class handset” but there’s more (like full QWERTY keyboard) under the hood.
