Some people want access to a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging purposes, but they don’t want to deal with the increased complexities of a true smartphone. T-Mobile seems to recognize this phenomenon, seeing how we’ve seen the Sidekick devices for years. Well, they’re expanding this concept with the pending launch of the Samsung Comeback.
On the surface, the Samsung Comeback looks a lot like its Sidekick stablemates, except it acts as a landscape-oriented flip phone rather than using the swivel action you found on the Sidekick. You could say that it is more in line with the LG enV line from Verizon.
The spec sheet has been leaked for this messaging-centric handset and obviously the biggest highlight is that full QWERTY keyboard. Based on the pictures, I think it could also be a double-flip phone like a couple of other Samsung phones before it.
Running through the rest of the features, we discover a 2 megapixel camera with video, microSDHC expansion slot, integrated email and IM clients, Bluetooth, 75MB of internal memory, 1700MHz 3G connectivity, and dual displays.
Look for the Samsung Comeback to launch as early as tomorrow. There’s no mention of price just yet, but I’m guessing that T-Mobile will keep it south of $100 with a two-year service agreement.
