While most manufacturers these days are shying away from creating handsets with physical keyboards, especially of the slide-out variation, there are a number of companies that aim to capture this shrinking market. Leaked press shots of a new Samsung phone show that the company still has vested interest making phones with slide-out QWERTY keyboards.
Being the first slider device for Boost Mobile, Samsung’s SPH-M930 (follow up to the Samsung Transform SPH-M920) will run on Android 2.3 gingerbread, a 1GHz MSM8655 Qualcomm SoC, a HVGA-resolution display, and a low-end rear camera (possibly 2-megapixels). No word on when it’ll go on sale at Boost Mobile, but since it hasn’t paid a visit to the FCC, it’s probably a couple of months away. A pretty decent looking device that should please Boost Mobile customers looking for a slide-out QWERTY Android phone. Any takers?
