Samsung SPH-M930 is an Android-powered side-sliding QWERTY smartphone for Boost Mobile
Boost Mobile is getting ready for its first Samsung slider to become available. The Samsung SPH-M930 looks like after all it isn’t, as its model number implies, the successor to the SPH-M920 Transform for Sprint. Instead, this is one Android-powered smartphone headed to Boost Mobile.
An official-looking image of the device was leaked today, and it features prominent Boost Mobile branding. The Samsung SPH-M930 should come with a 1 GHz processor, an HVGA (480×320) capacitive touchscreen, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. The M930 could have just a 2 MP camera, but it will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The phone has already received its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth certs, but hasn’t yet passed through the FCC. That may mean that an actual release isn’t coming very soon. It will be a month or two at least before the M930 (whatever it will end up being called) hits the streets and will be ready to order.
Anyway, if Boost Mobile is your carrier of choice and you’re into Android smartphones with full physical QWERTY keyboards, this is one device to patiently wait for.
