Samsung Illusion Available Via Direct Fill November 23 on Verizon

No, the Galaxy Nexus has not been renamed to Illusion. This is about as low-end as you can get for a smartphone these days, but we still thought we would share. It’s a 3G Android phone with a 3.5″ screen that lacks a front-facing camera. It is running Android 2.3 though, so at least it can laugh at some of its brethren including the DROID Charge and Fascinate who are still stuck with Froyo. Will more than likely be free on contract, as no one should have to pay money for this phone.

Cheers ___!

  • you know… for a non-power user this phone is perfect. it has all of the features af android, along with google navigation and voice actions, with a small screen (a screen that’s actually decent quality unlike the vortex and similar low end androids), and what appears to be a totally crappy camera that could actually turn out pretty good. i just held the display model and it feels great in hand. if i were a 10-14 year old or someone with very small hands or even someone who didn’t need a dual core processor, i would totally get this phone. I just wish they had something like this with higher end specs.

    I paid $299 for my Droid Charge and a FREE Phone gets firmware updates before me? I should get a free Nexus just for this BS!!!. Not to mention the 3G/4G issue where you disconnect every 10 minutes and the Battery that overheats to 107 degrees. Droid Charge is the largest hunk of shi* ever.

    Samsung is the king of junk phones

    this not relevant 

  • I love the “Verizon Exclusive” explosion on the top. They don’t have to worry about delaying it and losing exclusivity because no other network wants it, unlike a certain Nexus phone 😛

      Nothing says exclusive like MS WordART circa 1995

  • Wow, I can honestly say Verizon Wireless is ran by a bunch of scumbags. The marketing team needs to get their heads out of their arses to see WTF it is that people really want. You already have a low end Samsung device out (droid charge).
