Samsung slider on Android spotted


Samsung is working on an Android device with a physical keyboard. This keyboard slides out from the handset. A phone like this was missing in the Android program of the Koreans, but that is about to change.

Many specifications of the smartphone are still unknown. There is a rendering of the phone, which shows that the smartphone has a keyboard with four key rows. According to the website Boy Genius Report, the handset runs on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread 2. The slider is said to be comparable to the Galaxy S II , suggesting that the specifications are similar that phone.

On the leaked photos it can further be seen that the device has an 8 megapixel camera. According to those who published the pictures, the Samsung slider will this year be on the market in the United States. Perhaps the phone is the one rumoured as Attain, which is made for the provider AT&T. Since AT&T uses GSM technology, a European release of the phone is a good possibility.
