T-Mobile has now confirmed that the most recent addition to its 4G smartphone family, the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, will be available in late March.
It debuts with the signature giant screen Samsung loves to tout in its Apple-mocking commercials -- this one clocks in at nearly 4 inches. The Super AMOLED display sits on top of a Snapdragon S3 processor with 1.5 gigahertz dual-core CPUs.
Like the rest of the Galaxy S phones (with the exception of the Galaxy S II), the Blaze 4G won't be getting Android's latest update, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but will instead run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
As with many smartphones, the Galaxy S Blaze 4G comes pre-loaded with a bevy of apps, including Netflix, TeleNav GPS Navigator, T-Mobile TV and Yelp. T-Mo is also courting the business user who can choose their own device, packing the new phone with a "T-Mobile 4GPro App Pack" that comes with DropBox, Evernote, Square, TripIt, Camscanner and LinkedIn.
It'll also give consumers a 720p HD video recorder, 5-megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom, flash and advanced shooting modes, as well as a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
All this can be yours for about $150 (after a $50 mail-in rebate card, a two-year service agreement and qualifying "Classic" voice and data plan).
