Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G

For those of you waiting on pins and needles for the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, we've finally got availability details. Starting March 28, you'll be able to pick it up for $149.99 along with a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year contract. (It'll hit "select" stores a week earlier, for what that's worth.)

We got a pretty good look at the Blaze 4G at Mobile World Congress. And while the 3.97-inch Super AMOLED display and 1.5GHz dual-core processor are nothing to sneeze at, it's still running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, you'll be left waiting for an Ice Cream Sandwich update. Perhaps T-Mobile's 42 Mbps data speeds will assuage that?

Edit: Fixed screen size.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G available March 28 for $149


good thing android allows for variety. This phone isn't aimed at you obviously. Its aimed at people who want decent specs on a small "non tablet size" screens and with phones going 4.8-5.3" they need these phones

Lol, .03" below 4. So, rounding it like most manufacturer's probably do would make it fit your criteria then.

The only negative that I see here is yet another new Gingerbread device, which there is no excuse for at this point.

Yea, I have a Galaxy SII and I love it, but sometimes i just can't stand the fact that I cant swipe the top of the screen . I do not like the iPhones size, but they did make a comment that , the point was to make it usable 100% with one hand. but then again, as stated Android gives you the options, and I like that this phone came out because it might be something that my small hands would like! with everything that I want!

And sorry, for the Trolls who do not understand that some people are not automatons and follow EVERYONE elses trend. you dont like it, give your money to someone else!

Samsung has released plenty of 4.3-inch+ handsets lately. It's good to see them still showing some love to people who prefer more compact handsets.

My wife would love this if it had a physical keyboard. Unfortunately, I did not see any phones at all with physical keyboards mentioned during MWC. This had the look of a nice replacement for the Epic, though the res of the screen could have been bumped slightly. I have the Nexus S and the 480x800 pentile doesn't look that great to me any more with the phones being released lately.
