Verizon Samsung Gem Spotted Again

Remember the Samsung Gem? We first found a photo of it along with some specs back in August, and then it popped up again in a leaked Verizon roadmap. Well, it’s reared it’s head again via an announcement from Sammy, and it’s not going to impress a lot of people. The Gem will feature:

  • Android 2.1 (what a surprise) with TouchWiz 3.0
  • a small-ish 3.2-inch WVGA display, presumably Super AMOLED, that apparently has scratch/smudge protection.
  • a 3.2MP camera
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • A MicroSD card slot
  • GPS
  • 800MHz processor
  • Swype and Samsung’s Social Hub preinstalled

No word on an official release date or pricing, but we’ll keep you posted. Keep in mind that the Samsung announcement doesn’t name a carrier, but we’re assuming it’s Verizon due to the leaked roadmap from August. More on this as it develops. Anyone else not impressed with this device?
