Samsung Galaxy Pro Follows Motorola Droid Pro’s Example

samsung-galaxy-pro

No, the aesthetic isn’t quite the same, but it’s obvious enough that the Samsung Galaxy Pro is very much following in the same footsteps as the Motorola Droid Pro that came out oh so long ago. It’s an Android smartphone in bar form with a physical QWERTY keyboard and a small touchscreen display.

Wow… SnapKeys 2i drops the keys from typing

snapkeys-2i

So we’re still not totally sure how it works, but SnapKeys 2i definitely caught our interest at CES 2011. Using only four imaginary letter keys and one hell of an advanced word prediction engine, SnapKeys hopes to change the way people type on their smartphones and tablets forever.

Specs leaked for Samsung Galaxy Q Android smartphone

samsung-q-200

It’s still a rumored device for now, but this Android 2.2 phone sounds like it could seriously be a hot one. For starters, you get a 3.0-inch Super AMOLED multi-touch display to go with the full QWERTY keyboard and optical touchpad. Some people are saying that this lends itself to a slider, but a BlackBerry-esque bar phone could very well be possible too. Remember the Samsung Epix? Maybe like that, but so much newer and nicer.

Kyocera

I haven’t seen a new Kyocera phone for some time, but it seems that the Japanese company is still around and kicking. The newest phone doesn’t carry direct Kyocera branding, per se, but it is the Sanyo Juno by Kyocera and it’s heading to Boost Mobile.

From what I can see, the Juno is not a smartphone. Instead, it’s another one of those QWERTY-packing messaging phones designed for texting enthusiasts and other people who can’t be bothered with full smartphone functionality.

Dell Lightning strikes with Windows Phone 7

De

Not particularly impressed with the Dell Mini 3i? Don’t really want anything to do with the Dell Streak series? That doesn’t mean that the giant computer maker isn’t going to go after your smartphone dollars with yet another offering. In a very exciting move, it seems that we could be getting our hands on the Dell Lightning smartphone.

While the hardware looks pretty slick (and I’ll get into that a little further in just a moment), the real news is that this will be powered by Windows Phone 7. Windows Mobile has really fallen into the background these last couple of years, getting overshadowed by the iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android (and even webOS from Palm to an extent), so this could be a major boon for Microsoft.
