Verizon Wireless Could Launch An Android QWERTY Slider Phone This Summer

In case you’re in the market for a mid-range QWERTY slider phone on Verizon Wireless as opposed to the high-end likes of the Motorola Droid 2 or the soon-to-be-released Motorola Droid 3, then you’ll be happy to know that Verizon Wireless is reportedly going to launch a mid-range Samsung slider smartphone soon. According to a few leaked images picked up by Pocketnow, the Samsung SCH-i405 is said to be similar to Sprint’s Epic 4G in terms of aesthetics and specs as well.  While it’s hard to discern the specs from a blurry image, it is most likely going to launch with a 1GHz processor, 5MP rear facing camera, Android 2.2, and a 3.7 or 4.0 inch WVGA touch screen display.  However, if Verizon can keep the price down and potentially make it a 4G LTE device, I’d say it will be a hit with Verizon’s budget-friendly consumers.  Hopefully, Samsung will have the SCH-i405 available sometime this summer, but we will keep you posted on any further developments.
