by: LucianAugust 11, 2012
Nokia's online poll shows that the majority of users prefer QWERTY keyboards over touchscreen phones. But is this representative of the entire mobile market, or is Nokia looking at data skewed toward the old way of using smartphones?

Verizon’s Pantech Star Q 4G LTE leaked, slider phone with Snapdragon S4 and ICS

by: Bams SadewoJuly 27, 2012

Now that summer break is almost over, Verizon is hoping to catch the new school year momentum by unleashing the Pantech Star Q 4G LTE. The Star Q’s main attraction is its 5-row QWERTY keyboard, which should be welcomed by text-obsessed students or other folks who often have to do their word processing on the road.

Slide-out QWERTY keyboard aside, the Pantech Star Q 4G LTE is no slouch in the speed department. The phone is equipped with a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor; the same chip used in high-end Android smartphones. It boasts a 4-inch display of 800 x 480 resolution, 3MP rear camera, and a front camera. Another surprise is the inclusion of Android 4.0 Ice [...]

Slider phone Kyocera Rise coming to Sprint and Virgin Mobile

by: Bams SadewoJuly 23, 2012

You may know Kyocera for its water-resistant smartphone offering, the Kyocera Hydro. But there’s one more Android trick up the Japanese manufacturer’s sleeve. After it was first showcased at CTIA 2012 back in May – the Kyocera Rise is on its way to two wireless carriers in the US.

EVleaks has shared new pictures of the Kyocera Rise in the wild, bringing along with it fresh information of where the phone will be heading to. Looking at the specs and the mentioned SprintZone app in the phone’s home screen, it’s safe to say that the slider will be offered by Sprint. But that’s not all, because the phone apparently will be [...]

T-Mobile’s myTouch and myTouch Q to hit stores August 8

by: Bams SadewoJuly 11, 2012

Are you a fan of the MyTouch series on T-Mobile? You’ll be pleased to know that the refreshed MyTouch phones will be up for grabs soon. Sure, T-Mobile had to pull a manufacturer switcheroo to Huawei, but the phone still packs some respectable specs, design, and the all-important physical QWERTY keyboard.  The T-Mobile myTouch and MyTouch Q will be released on August 8, but a true keyboard aficionado will want to pay attention only to the Q model.

Minus the slide-out keyboard, the T-Mobile MyTouch and MyTouch Q has similar specs. Here they are:

4-inch WVGA display Single-core 1.4GHz processor 5MP rear camera with a dedicated shutter [...]

T-Mobile to launch the slider Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q on August 15

by: Bams SadewoJuly 10, 2012

It’s been a while since we last heard about a particular T-Mobile device sporting a 5-row keyboard and HD display, but now we can finally give the Samsung SGH-T699 a name. In keeping with the tradition of using an overly long naming convention, the QWERTY phone will come to T-Mobile formally as the – takes a deep breath – Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q.  Want to guess what the Q in the name stands for?

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q will carry similar specs to its keyboard-less predecessor the Galaxy S Blaze 4G. While it hasn’t been officially confirmed, the device may sport the same 4-inch 720p HD display with. Likewise, there should be no change in the processor used, which [...]

Samsung GT-B5330 future low-end phone spotted online, to come with ICS and QWERTY keyboard

by: AdrianJuly 2, 2012

Samsung is the star of the Android smartphone world lately, and, while a big part of its success comes from high-end devices, entry-level phones are still important for Sammy. And it’s no wonder that the Koreans are preoccupied with offering their users with decent low-end alternatives when the Galaxy Y, for example, used to ship in around 1.75 million units each month back in Q1.

Now a new entry-level smartphone from Samsung has surfaced and, while it will probably come with very poor hardware, it could capture the attention of tech users on a budget with two unexpected features.

First off, the GT-B5330 will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, [...]

Motorola slider bound for Sprint leaked, could it be the Photon Q 4G LTE?

by: AdrianJune 18, 2012

We’ve been telling you for a long time how much we’d love to see a smartphone with a full-sized slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a dual-core S4 or quad-core proc, and Android 4.0 ICS, but, much to our desperation, nobody seems to be listening to our desires.

Or nobody seemed to be listening, because we’ve just picked up a leak on a mysterious Motorola handheld that could well fit the bill. The phone, if real, will be surely hitting Sprint soon enough, but other than that and the fact that it will come with a 5-row QWERTY keyboard, we can’t say nothing for sure right now.

However, if we put two and two together and look towards recent rumors surrounding future Motorola [...]

T-Mobile-bound Samsung SGH-T699 spotted, QWERTY phone with a possible HD display

by: Bams SadewoJune 15, 2012

Well you can cross that Galaxy Nexus off your T-Mobile’s wish list, for the mysterious Samsung SGH-T699 that we reported a while back has been unveiled as a QWERTY phone.

Aside from the fact that it has a 5-row slide-out keyboard, which would be welcomed by heavy texters and emailers, the rest of the specs are still uncertain.

Let’s start with what a source has told TmoNews about the phone. The phone will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and the rear camera apparently is of a 5MP variety. To hazard a guess, the front camera is at least a VGA one. Going by the previous leak, the display is likely an HD one (1280 x 720 resolution), while the phone’s processor [...]

The veil lifts on the LG LS860 Cayenne – new pic and specs emerge

by: Bams SadewoMay 26, 2012

The LG LS860 “Cayenne” is certainly not camera shy. After we’ve seen it yesterday in all it’s naked glory, the ever resourceful guys at Brief Mobile have uncovered a new image of the slider phone. More importantly, this new report brings along the confirmed specifications of the phone, which will, no doubt, please QWERTY phone aficionados.

It seems we’ve underestimated just how powerful the LG LS860 is going to be. Instead of the 1.2GHz Snapdragon S3 processor that we reported yesterday, it’s now confirmed that the LG LS860 will sport the much more powerful dual-core 1.2GHz S4 Krait processor. On top of such a desirable processor, the LG [...]
