The Samsung InstinctQ (also known as the Samsung M900) just passed through the hands of the Notorious FCC. And when yet-to-be announced products pass through the FCC, it typically means it's going to be announced sooner rather than later. So should we expect the Samsung InstinctQ/M900 to take over the daily headlines in the near future?
We think yes. The Samsung InstinctQ was previously rumored to release in October, and though that seems a wee bit too close, we're fairly certain an announcement (at the least) is on its way. The Notorious FCC leaks that the InstinctQ will rock CDMA/EV-DO connectivity which definitely points toward Sprint being the carrier. Everything else seems to be standard fare--Android OS, Bluetooth, and WiFi. The InstinctQ deserves bonus points for a hardware keyboard though.
What do you guys think? Is a hardware QWERTY keyboard enough to make you pass on the HTC Hero and wait for this puppy? Or are you just happy to see Android take off?

Definitely happy to see Android taking off... QWERTY keyboard - why?? All it needs is a reasonable sized screen with capacitive touch. Physical keyboards are so 2 years ago! Seriously ;-)
Hm I cannot agree with your comment. I will always take the querty device. It just makes you feel more comfortable and safe. Soft keyboards can! be good. (actually I write this from my HTC hero) But they are still slower. Alone the fact that I have to press a Button in order to hide the keyboard after writing annoys me. And the additional proofread to compensate the spellcheck.
I am waiting to buy my first Android device. Right now I have a Pre and iPhone 3Gs. I had a Samsung text phone recently also. I am comfortable on real keyboard or screen, but I think I prefer the real keyboard. I think Android devices will have both for a while. This is good for all users. I was going to get the HTC Hero, but then saw the MOTO CLIQ. Now this Samsung, decisions decisions.
