Samsung Saga and Renown for Verizon Available Online, In Stores Dec. 1

Just like we thought, Samsung's i770 Saga QWERTY phone and clamshell world phone Renown are available online. The Saga is for sale as of yesterday, going for $US200 after a $US70 mail-in rebate and with a 2-year contract, and the Renown will go live on November 19th for $US180 after a $US50 MIR with the 2-year lock-in. The Saga is most notable at this point for being the first phone to require Verizon's mandatory $US29.99 a month plan. Specs after the jump.
