Android smartphones are going to be coming out in increasing numbers over the next few months as manufacturers put devices onto the market to meet demand and for the coming holiday shopping season. Many of the new handsets coming will be Android based.

We have heard a bit about the Samsung InstinctQ before when its Wi-Fi cert surfaced. The device has been spied in more leaked images that clearly show the handset will be Android powered. The device has a sliding QWERTY keyboard, and is the first in the Instinct line to offer that feature.

The reported launch date for the Samsung device is October 11, the same day the Hero is set to launch on Sprint. I hope that Sprint will be able to sell more of these handsets than it was able to move of the Pre. There is no word on pricing at this time, but somewhere around $199.99 would be a good guess.
