Here comes the Samsung i607 3G smartphone, which will first be offered by Cingular, and it's out to kick some Motorola Q ass. Affectionately known as the Blackjack, it just got FCC approval, so we can expect to see it on the market before too long. Although it's slightly fatter than the Q (13mm vs 11.5mm for the Motorola Q), that extra 1.5mm won't be noticed. It also has a 320x240 display, a full QWERTY keyboard, a 1.3-megapixel camera and a microSD slot.

This Windows Mobile smartphone is well equipped to smack down the Motorola Q, and since we carry a Q around every day and constantly struggle with its sluggish navigation and short battery life, we're thinking this is going to be easy for Samsung.
