Samsung today debuted the "Galaxy Pro," an Android smartphone that combines a full QWERTY keyboard and a 2.8" touch-screen display. The device will ship in the UK later this month and across Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia shortly after.
The phone appears to be targeted to the lower end of the business segment as well as the everyday consumer. The Pro will have Flash support and an included 3-megapixel camera, but for the business-centric user it'll include Exchange and tethering capabilities. It also would include Samsung's TouchWiz user interface.
A company spokesperson told Yonhap News Agency that the larger version of Tab intended to compete with the iPad would release as scheduled. Samsung does not intend to delay the device in order to make improvements based on the changes in the iPad 2.
