Samsung Acclaim

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The Samsung Acclaim is a QWERTY styled smartphone geared more to users on a budget. It was actually the first Android phone to launch on U.S. Cellular. It comes with a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash, a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and launched with Android 2.1.

While the Acclaim is far from a highend superphone, it is sure to please those users looking for an Android experience but don't want to spend too much for a smartphone.
