T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G Unboxing: 42 Mbps of Blazing Data for $150

We recently received the Galaxy S Blaze 4G from T-Mobile, a brand new Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone with a dual-core processor and support for T-Mobile’s 42Mbps (HSPA+) networks in the United States. The phone reminds us a lot of the BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860, especially the backside, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Its BlackBerry-inspired design could attract business users seeking a more corporate-looking Android smartphone.

The Galaxy S Blaze 4G offers similar power to the Galaxy S II on T-Mobile, but it also adds support for NFC for anyone interested in mobile payments or NFC tagging capabilities. It also features several solid specs for the price, including a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a Super AMOLED display and a 5-megapixel camera.

We’re digging the phone so far, but the data speeds in New York have been less than impressive  We’ll be taking it for a deeper dive this week and will have our full review posted shortly.
