Details of the NEC Terrain leaked a few months ago, but today AT&T made things official. As you can see from the picture above, the unique thing about this phone is that it has a physical QWERTY keyboard and is candy bar style – something we haven’t really seen in smartphones in years. Also, it is very rugged – water-resistant, dustproof, and shockproof. There’s even a dedicated push-to-talk button.
The Terrain is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.5 GHz and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. A 5-megapixel rear camera and 0.3-megapixel front camera comes along as well. Since the keyboard takes up much space, the Terrain has just a 3.1-inch display.
You can get the NEC Terrain beginning June 21 through AT&T Business Solutions for $99 with a two year contract.
