Now that the Android-powered BlackBerry is on the scene, I’m kind of open to trying new things again. I’m getting used to typing with a keyboard, something I haven’t done for an extended period of time since I turned in my BlackBerry Bold years ago. Should I try a flip phone next? Samsung’s new Android-powered W2016 looks pretty sweet. It’s kind of like a Galaxy S6 shoved into a clamshell device.
Samsung announced the phone on Friday, following several leaks that gave us early sneak peaks at it, and it features some of the curves of the Galaxy-series of smartphones, especially on the back panel. It runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and packs a 2.1GHz processor, a pair of 3.9-inch 1280 x 768-pixel displays, 3GB of RAM, a 16MP camera, a 5MP front-facing camera and 64GB of storage.
I’m not really sure I could get used to typing on this sort of keyboard again, but maybe I can. I was pretty good at it as a teenager, anyway. It looks like it’s on China Mobile right now, and it probably won’t ever come to the U.S. Oh well, back to my Priv.
