The SGH-T699 Becomes the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze Q….Q Short for QWERTY
In the past years smart phones have become incredibly thin and unfortunately dropped off some of the features we look forward to, like QWERTY keyboards for example. As the smart phone slims out and grows diagonally, room for a tactical keyboard goes by the way side. A few years back for every high end slate styled device to launch there was a comparable slider with a built in keyboard to fill the niche. As the size of our smart phones flattened, so did the selection of QWERTY’s. But with the slow death of physical buttons looms over the smart phone world, it’s good to know that sometimes, you keyboard lovers will get your chance! The Samsung T699 looks to be making its way to the likes of T-Mobile, QWERTY keyboard in tow.
