Samsung Alias 2 and Motorola Rival A445 get pictured in the plasticky flesh


There it is folks, in all of its e-ink keypad glory: the Samsung Alias 2. Rumors indicated that this guy was set for release on May 11th, and the fact that shots of it have started to trickle out lead us to believe that the retail spots have begun to receive their units. Expect to see this guy hit shelves next week.

PhoneArena has a few more shots, along with a couple blurry cam shots (one of them after the jump) of the Motorola Rival A445. Otherwise known as “Rush 2”, this QWERTY-slider is headed for VZW and is jampacked full of mediocrity – but if you’re looking for a basic texter on the ol’ veezeedub, it might fit the bill.
