Samsung to announce QWERTY in Android’s Galaxy

Samsung is looking to add a QWERTY Android phone to it's Galaxy line of phones during CTIA this month. The news is that the new phone will have a "candy bar" design much like BlackBerry, running Android 2.2 (Froyo). But it seems more likely that Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) would be more practical. The design is rumored to be a bit wider than the Samsung Galaxy S and is geared for a higher end clientele. Possibly aimed at Blackberry's business models?

Atrix 4G price plummets on Amazon

Amazon is really pushing the Atrix 4G for AT&T, dropping the price another twenty bucks to $129.99 with a 2-year contract through MaBell. The 4G Smartphone, which is powerful enough to double as a laptop with the optional dock, is listed at AT&Ts website for $199 subsidized. So, the online retailer seems to have an inside track on so much Atrix inventory that it can undercut even their own suppliers and still swing a profit? Or, more likely they anticipate high demand for users to want the laptop option but are experiencing some sticker shock on the $500 price, thereby giving them motivation to buy both and stay under $700. More sedentary users can use the optional HD Multimedia Dock for $90 plus free shipping. Great if you love movies.
