Portrait QWERTY smartphones are a quickly dying breed. Android ones are even rarer, and good ones are impossible to come by. This is the Samsung GT-B7810, the successor to the Galaxy M Pro (B7800). And if you’re getting excited, don’t. With a 480×360 landscape screen and a 1,200 mAh battery, there is little to be excited about. While it should be faster than its predecessor, we aren’t sure how much better it will. All we know is that it’ll be faster than a 1GHz single core.
It’s unfortunate, but there are no good Android smartphones with portrait keyboards. This is probably destined for markets outside of the US, and will probably be very cheap unlocked. Samsung, how about a high end one now? Blackberry Torch style?
