If you’re looking for a handset with a sliding keyboard, Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G may be the answer. The product is coming to T-Mobile on September 19th and in case the name of the device doesn’t sound familiar, it was previously known as the Galaxy S Blaze Q. The slider will be available with a price tag of $150.
Of course, this price involves a 2 year contract, after a $50 mail in rebate, so don’t worry. For the same price you get the older Samsung Galaxy S II, with relatively similar specs, but without QWERTY keyboard. Galaxy S Relay 4G runs Android 4.0 ICS from the start and it offers a 4 inch WVGA display, HSPA+ 42 Mbps connectivity, WiFi, GPS and a 5 megapixel camera at the back. There’s also a 1.3 megapixel front camera and 1 GB of RAM.
The brain of the smartphone is 1.5 GHz dual core CPU and other specs include microSD card slot and the famous 5 row landscape QWERTY keyboard. The screen is of the Super AMOLED kind, while the CPU is of the Snapdragon S3 variety. T-Mobile will offer Microsoft’s Exchange ActiveSync on this device.
