When’s the last time you saw an “old-school,” traditional clamshell flip-phone? Yeah, it probably really has been that long. Apparently Samsung wanted to get back into the game, because they’ve just announced the availability of the Haven, a traditional flip-phone that, for all intents and purposes, looks like it was ripped straight out of the past.
Features wise, here’s what you’re looking at: a 2.2-inch display, adjustable font sizes, dedicated keys for the loudspeaker and ICE (In Case of Emergency). The ICE dedicated key is one that was pretty popular on Verizon’s device catalog, and it gives the owner the ability to add up to three contacts for emergency contact. There’s even a dedicated key for 9-1-1.
Oddly enough, Samsung also included a health application. It’s a fitness trainer with 15 different stretching exercises. You’ll also find four “healing music selections” to get you in that calm state of mind. And lastly, a medical application that will help you keep tabs on all of your medical related information. As we said before, the Haven is available now (you can order it from Verizon’s site), and $39.99 is all it will cost you. When it comes to stores on July 29th, there will probably be a mail-in rebate you’ll have to deal with.
