Samsung Galaxy Pro | Specifications | Price in India

Samsung has launched , Galaxy Pro, a new QWERTY keypad smart phone. This smart phone is not in the same line as galaxy s phones, which are complete touch screen. Samsung Galaxy Pro will have its front divided in two halves, upper part being a touch screen (not multi touch though ) and lower part will have a full QWERTY keyboard. This is more like a blackberry phone, probably Samsung is aiming at the blackberry segment itself. Specification wise it beats (or at least stands equal) any Blackberry phone,  a touch screen gives it an edge over similarly priced Blackberry phone which have only a trackball for navigation.

One thing which is not clear yet is that how Samsung Galaxy Pro will compete with Blackberry's unparalleled emailing services? If there is no dedicated emailing service, one will have to use commonly available emailing services or at best paid third party emailing services.

Specifications Now lets see how does Galaxy Pro fare in specifications.  Galaxy Pro has a portrait QWERTY keypad, much like Blackberry phones. Keypad is nicely built, keys are large enough for easy typing. Galaxy Pro also has 4 buttons meant for Android navigation, these keys separate QWERTY keyboard from capacitative screen. Coming to the screen, Samsung Galaxy Pro has a AMOLED capacitative touch screen.  Its a 320 x 240 pixels, 2.8 inches screen.  Samsung could had done better in camera, first there is no front camera, second the rear camera is only 3.2 Mpix. 3.2 mpix camera is slightly outdated in my opinion, a 5+ Mpix camera is needed for today's smartphones.  This apps will run on Android 2.2, froyo. For a bar phone this smart phone has a good CPU speed of 800MHz, although which CPU will power this smartphone is not known yet. Here is a detailed specification sheet as released by Samsung,

    No price available yet except for the consensus price on the net that this MIGHT be around Rs 10,000. We might be pleasantly surprised with a much lower price or we could be outrageously disappointed if it is priced anywhere above that price.

    unfortunately there is no front camera on Galaxy Pro … Samsung missed this important feature for today’s smartphone…this can prove to be a deal breaker
