Samsung Illusion

It’s been a while since we talked about the Samsung Illusion, but a friendly ninja just dropped off a screencap of the Verizon Infocenter page for the entry-level handset in our inbox.  Imagine a smaller version of the Nexus S, minus the vanilla Gingerbread build and plus an SD card slot, and you’ll have a pretty good picture of what to expect.  The 1GHz Hummingbird and 512MB of RAM should make for  [Read More…]
