theBatman, 16 Jul 2013ever heard of nokia......I'm not a fan of WP8, so have just little knowledge on it. Thus I won't buy a WP8 phone to my mum since I can't help her if she is in trouble on it.
And did Nokia ever released a flipped WP8 phone?? And if you are saying Nokia Asha, it is just a feature phone (to me), and my mum is a crazy fan of Candy Crush....
Anyway, am not hating Nokia, just my opinion.
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2013Because full touchscreen phones are perfect example 100% pure uber human stupidity, nothing else.Touchscreen devices are only suited for a few specific situation. This is why computers still use the far superior mouse.
moki, 16 Jul 2013Real big doubt is how am i going to play games on itYou will be able to play using keys instead of accelerometer and having to always sit in the same position.
Ali, 16 Jul 2013Samsung should make Qwerty Android phone.... many people like Qwerty Smart phone....Don't they make such phones already?

Anyway, but personally, I will be happy to see Samsung release a flipped Android phone with a classic alphanumeric keyboard, and base on the rumored spec, it should be a mid/low end device, which suits my mum's needs. Coz she juz find touchscreen is rather hard for her to control, and BB qwerty keypad is same to her too. But it is still a rumor, wait for official announcement and hope Samsung price it at a reasonable price.
Great for the elderly who like tactile buttons, plus the benefits of a smart phone.
I do like clamshell phones, the thin ones, still remember my Motorolla Razor V3 :)
Would like to have a clamshell again... preferably made by Apple - sleak, thin, well bild, with Apple's attention to every detail :)
" Now there's a good reason why the folder form factor are almost extinct now" Do you mind telling us what that reason is?
Anyway, I hope this news is true. My dad would love this. He's been refusing to give up his clam shell Samsung (which is in really bad shape) because he only wants this form factor. I've been struggling to find him a new one for a long time.
Hey itz really good..... from the last 2 months I am looking for a clamshell...I will surely buy it not for the reason that it is on Android and by Samsung. only for the reason that it is Clamshell with good quality
The pictures are not of the new Folder phone, It's actually the "Dual Screen Samsung SCH-W2013" which was released last year for around $3000US
DOM, 16 Jul 2013i would buy this.. always loved flip phones, but obv they all lacked the os upgrades compared ... morewait, so now samsung fanboys are saying that this is Ok? a must buy? A couple of months ago they were saying that the bigger the phone, the better.... LOL i dont understand you fanboys
