If you've been patiently waiting for an Android phone with the form factor of a traditional BlackBerry, then rejoice because your ship may have sailed in.
The Galaxy Pro may look like a BlackBerry, but it does have a touch screen display to make navigating the thing a bit easier than your typical RIM device. This makes it appealing to someone who wants a physical keyboard, but doesn't like a slider phone like the Torch.
Unfortunately the specs are nothing to get too excited about, with an 800-MHz processor running Froyo, and a pretty modest sounding 320x240 pixel 2.8-inch display. The 3-megapixel rear facing camera only shoots SD video, and there is no front facing camera. On the plus side, Samsung's Social Hub Premium app integration is said to help the Galaxy Pro achieve an impressive 11 hour talk time.
Samsung will be launching the Galaxy Pro in Britain first, followed by other parts of Europe and Asia, but with no US plans yet announced. Price was not mentioned, but it will have to be reasonable to avoid being crushed by the Motorola Droid Pro
