Samsung Moment

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

Sprint has just added its first full QWERTY Keyboard Android Phone to their lineup with the Samsung Moment. Initially rumored as the "InstinctQ", the Moment rocks an 800 MHz processor - what was the fastest processor in an Android phone at the time - and the keyboard is great to say the least.

Samsung InstinctQ Open

The Samsung Moment goes touch with the optical keypad and Home/Menu/Back keys all being touch sensitive. With a 3.5mm headset jack and 32GB MicroSD expansion port multimedia fans are covered. Sporting vanilla Android 1.6 and easily updated manually officially to Android 2.1, the Samsung Moment is DEFINITELY a winner.
