Samsung Android Slider heading to AT&T
It looks like Samsung will have a new Android device for AT&T customers. BGR has obtained a picture of an unnamed Samsung model and this handset has four buttons below the display instead of the usual three on Sammy's Android phones, supposedly at the carrier's request. The landscape oriented side sliding QWERTY has four rows of keys and we can detect a front facing camera.

Unfortunately, some of the important things are still unknown about this unit. Things like specs, a launch date and pricing were not revealed. The phone is expected to hit the market in the coming months. Without knowing what's inside, we are forced to judge this book by its cover. Let us know what you think about the design of this mystery phone by commenting in the box below.

People like the physical Qwerty. Sometimes I wish I had one, especially when posting on message boards, and web browsing.

A Qwerty Android for AT&T definitely fills a void in their lineup.

The laSt phone that att had comparable was the HTC Tilt 2 people were leaving the carrier or paying crazy amounts for a HTC desire Z unfortunately this phone is 6 months to a year late as every other carrier even prepaid has at least one phone comparable

It's about damn time. Now tell me it goes toe to toe with a Droid 3 and I'll be happy.

I'm starting to think that the Samsung Within, Function, and Attain are actually these slider phones. First we got the slider leaked from Verizon, then there's a rumored epic 2 for Sprint, and now this for At&t.

EVERY SINGLE Android Qwerty AT&T has released has completely sucked, starting with their very first Android handset, the Backflip, of which I am a proud (staggeringly ashamed) owner. They didn't want to lose their iPhone market, so that made sense, but if they had released a high-end Qwerty Android just as Verizon was getting the iPhone, they might have saved themselves some subscribers (maybe not, since Verizon is superior in so many ways...). Ultimately, AT&T, with or without T-Mobile (and, yeah, that IS gonna happen, and it IS gonna be bad for consumers), by 2013 or so, will have LTE deployed basically everywhere, with HSPA+ as a pretty great backup, which no other carrier will be able to touch. For now, they are just the worst carrier by miles. But you put side-loading, LTE and Ice Cream Sandwich in this phone, and I will step on several toddlers to go buy it. It will be like upgrading my Prius to water-powered jet-boots.
