In many ways, it started with the original Samsung BlackJack. It wasn’t exactly a BlackBerry, but the QWERTY-packing smartphone offered a great option for people who wanted a slim Windows Mobile smartphone. Things got a touch better when they unleashed the Samsung BlackJack II, even though the form factor and design remained much the same.
As we anxiously await the arrival of the Samsung BlackJack III, it’s good to hear that we can finally attach some sort of timeline to this wait. The current rumor has the BJ3, also known as the Samsung i788, hitting the corporate consumer market this October. The BlackJack III looks much like its predecessors, but that display is now a 320×320 touchscreen.
Other features include Windows Mobile 6.1, 528MHz processor, 3 megapixel camera, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, and HSDPA. More likely than not, you’ll find this phone falling into the lap of AT&T and Rogers.
