The Samsung Galaxy Pro was unveiled today at the at Samsung SEA Forum in Singapore. The Samsung Galaxy Pro is the first Android handset from Samsung to sport a portrait QWERTY keyboard. The handset will feature an 800MHZ CPU, 2.8-inch touchscreen, 3 megapixel camera, WiFi, and 3G connectivity and will run on Android 2.2.
Like the majority of Samsung’s Android devices, the Galaxy Pro will feature TouchWiz and Samsung’s Social Hub. Launch details and pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Pro are still not available, but 3 UK has announced on their blog that the handset will be coming to their network sometime soon.
I’m personally not a huge fan of having a full keyboard on the outside of my phone, but it’s hard to deny that there’s a huge demand for this form factor. RIM has made a fortune with their BlackBerry handsets over the years and now Android manufacturers want to show that they can compete in that same segment.
