Samsung Gloss hits US Cellular, everyone makes fun of it for looking funny


The conversation I had with a female roommate this morning, upon receiving the press release for the Samsung Gloss:

Me: Check this out! It’s called the Samsung Gloss. It’s a QWERTY flip phone built for the ladyfolk.

Her: Misogynist!

Me: It’s pink! It has flowers! It’s called “gloss”!

Her: Still. Plus, why is it called “gloss”? If they’re going off the idea that it looks like make-up, lipgloss comes in a tube. That looks more like a compact.

This is the world I live in, folks. Anyway, Samsung Gloss launches on US Cellular this morning, with Stereo Bluetooth, full QWERTY keyboard, and 1.3 megapixel camera en tow. If nothing else, it’s a good way to get people to say “Wow! That’s a very stout cell phone!”
