Samsung Galaxy Q is expected to be Android's answer to the BlackBerry form factor?
With an impending assault on the US market with their upcoming line of various Samsung Galaxy S devices, Samsung also happens to be in the game of releasing yet another handset that would seemingly compete head on with RIM's line of BlackBerry handsets. The Korea Times is reporting that the second largest handset manufacturer in the world is going to supplement their Galaxy line of Android smartphones with yet another addition in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Q. Naturally one would surmise for it to be some kind of high-end set that follows similar to previous offerings, but the Q is speculated to pack on a portrait style QWERTY that's become prominent among BlackBerry devices. Additionally, the Korea Times reports that the Galaxy Q will “be on American shelves by the end of the year” and will tack on  “advanced social media features.” Aside from the Super AMOLED it's reported to be sporting, there were no other information regarding its specs – but one would have to imagine for it follow closely to its brothers and sisters.

I think you're speaking of Samsung Captivate, aka Samsung's version of Blackberry Storm. It's the Samsung Galaxy S version for AT&T. Check pics out:

the captivate (aka Galaxy S) has no keyboard, and is nothing like a blackberry storm.... this is a totally different device with a portrait qwerty as mentioned in the article... as in the type of keyboard on blackberry devices.. just like what dell will be putting out with the "Smoke" and Acer will be putting out with their beTouch E130... and i am pretty sure there will be others to follow by motorola and Huawei

Ya. Motorola already has a portrait qwerty planned and about to come out on one of the big 4 networks. I have info but I won't leak it, I'm protecting my source.
