You have to wait until the first quarter of 2013 to get your hands on Research In Motion’s latest BlackBerry 10-powered devices, including one with a QWERTY keyboard, but if you don’t want to wait that long, Samsung reportedly has a new portrait-QWERTY smartphone in the works. The phone, currently dubbed the GT-B5330, was leaked on Monday by SammyHub.
The GT-B5330 allegedly packs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a low-resolution 320 x 240-pixel display and a 850MHz processor. We’re guessing this one is bound for Europe or emerging markets, however, since it currently only offers 3G support and won’t run on 4G LTE networks. We’re digging the design, though — it looks like a cross between the Palm smartphones of past combined with Samsung’s older portrait-QWERTY Windows Phone devices.
SammyHub didn’t have any information in regards to potential pricing or when the GT-B5330 would hit the market.
RIM: Maybe you should take Google up on its offer to create an Android-powered BlackBerry Nexus device.
