Samsung Ch@t 322: 'dual SIMs and QWERTY' is pretty much all you need to know

Chris Ziegler

Remember, the market for text-centric dumbphones is still a huge one -- though that market's being increasingly threatened by low-cost entries running Symbian and Android every day. The tipping point hasn't happened yet, so in the meantime, Samsung's happy to bust out this so-called Ch@t 322 with full portrait QWERTY stationed underneath a portrait-oriented display paired with an optical keypad. No signs of Bada here as far as we can tell, but Sammy's managed to squeeze in two SIM slots, a pretty popular feature throughout Asia and Russia. Makes good sense, then, that sales will first kick off in Russia next month followed by parts of Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
