Just in case you had any doubts about Samsung's commitment
to the physical keyboard, here's a slide of the Korean giant's Bada OS
roadmap, filled with rubbery QWERTY buttons aplenty. At top left you can see the Wave
-- which Samsung places in its "premium image brand" together with the Galaxy S
-- priced at 20,000 Rubles (just under $700), followed by its as yet nameless and spec-less Bada siblings. Our interest is piqued most by the QWERTY slider that's sat so perfectly atop the 10,000-Ruble line, we wouldn't mind seeing the Super AMOLED
screen tech trickling down to such a price point. We wouldn't mind that at all. All About Phones
has also spotted two Windows Mobile
and one Android handset during the presentation, though Sammy has been predictably recalcitrant about specs on those as well. All we're told is to wait for the autumn. Guess that will have to do.
