A is for Apple, B is for Blackberry, and Q is for QWERTY… at least that’s what we’ve heard. To add to the Samsung Galaxy line of phones, it seems that the latest thing is the Samsung Galaxy Q, complete with QWERTY keyboard. According to an article by the Korea Times, sources close to Samsung are saying that this will be a competitor for Blackberry phones, and that the Galaxy Q “will be all about providing simplicity in user experience, although it will still feature a full QWERTY keypad. The full touch-screen phone will also come with advanced social media features”.
Unlike it’s Galaxy S Pro brother, which is slated to be on Sprint, speculation is that the Galaxy Q will be released on either Verizon or AT&T. Verizon, however, would make more sense, considering AT&T’s recent announcement of the Galaxy S Pro-like phone, the Captivate. While Samsung is the #2 provider of handsets worldwide, directly behind Nokia, it may be difficult for them to compete with RIM in the U.S., which currently holds around 40% market share.
