It’s something new by Samsung, and far from the interesting realm of Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1. It’s the Galaxy Pro, and has the worst specs of the lot: 800MHz processor, QWERTY keyboard a la BlackBerry, 2.8-inch toucscreen, Android 2.2 (what?) with Touchwiz 3.0, and a 3 megapixel camera. The first carrier to offer this abomination is the British carrier Three. Pricing, release dates, and so on come at a later date. Via: Samsung’s Hub
