Samsung Propel Pro Leak

AT&T will soon pick up a premium equivalent to the Samsung Propel that will serve as a full-fledged smartphone, BGR has discovered in a leak. The Propel Pro would switch from the feature-limited basic OS of the original to Windows Mobile 6.1 with according support for third-party apps. Samsung should appropriately give the slide-out QWERTY phone a black-and-chrome look and a more exotic optical joystick for control.

Very few other details have surfaced, though the Propel Pro should have 3G and a camera. Release information is similarly unclear, though the apparently complete state of the device with AT&T-branded firmware points to a relatively close release. While the US carrier often releases phones outside of major events, its next-closest major opportunity to launch the Propel Pro comes with the Mobile World Congress show in mid-February.

    Among other things, the Propel Pro also has GPS, stereo bluetooth, 3-megapixel camera and a 2.5-inch screen with 320x320 resolution. WinMo 6.1 runs fine on the phone. It's not blazing, but it hardly lags. The hardware itself looks beautiful , and I've always been a sucker for squarish, slider phones. However, the keyboard feels totally cramped, and the directional nub is feels cheap, so navigating with this phone isn't the most desirable thing in the world (no touchscreen).
