Samsung has announced an Android 4.0 smartphone with a full QWERTY keypad that is designed for those that love messaging.
The Galaxy Chat has a 3-inch screen and Samsung’ own TouchWiz UI as well as 4GB of internal memory expandable up to 32GB. The phone is designed with the cross-platform ChatOn messaging app at its core; this BBM-esque feature includes a dedicated launch key to get you straight to the app.
The handset is slim at 11.7mm and includes Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a 2-megapixel camera. If you haven’t set your heart on the much loved Galaxy S3, or you simply have to have a QWERTY keypad on your smartphone this could be the phone for you.
There has been no confirmed release date for the UK but as the handset is already available in Spain it should be landing here soon.
Are you a fan of QWERTY handsets? Do you think a virtual keypad on a touchscreen is just as good?
