Samsung Galaxy Q headed to both Rogers and Fido, pricing revealed
About a month ago, we first heard that Rogers was getting ready to launch yet another Android-powered smartphone, this time a midrange device with a full physical side-sliding QWERTY keyboard – the Samsung Galaxy Q.
The handset would be added to Rogers’ Smartphone Lite category, which consists of entry-level smartphones that are mainly aimed at youths and first-time smartphone users.
Today we got a lot of details about the Galaxy Q, including pricing information. First of all, the Galaxy Q will also be headed to Fido.
The Samsung Galaxy Q will run Android 2.2 Froyo unfortunately, and not Android 2.3 Gingerbread as we thought in July. Aside from that QWERTY keyboard, it will come with a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 3-megapixel camera with video capture, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Samsung’s Social Hub interface.
You’ll be able to get 100 MB of data each month for $10 with the Galaxy Q, and the device will cost you $49.99 with a new three-year contract, $99.99 with a two-year commitment, $149.99 with a one-year service agreement, and $249.99 without any contract.
MobileSyrup expects the Samsung Galaxy Q to become available sometime later this week, so stay tuned for more.
