Samsung takes another potshot at the Motorola Q with its upcoming SGH-i760, a Windows Mobile 5 for Pocket PC Smartphone with an Intel 520MHz CPU inside. This one looks like it has it all, with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth 2.0, a 240x320 touchscreen, WiFi, and even has a forward-facing video calling camera. On the other side there's a 2-megapixel camera, too. Plus, the thing is exceedingly light, weighing in at just 119g (that's just over 4 ounces for us metrically-challenged).

Our interest is piqued. It won't take much to slam-dunk that Motorola Q, and this might just be the ticket. Full spec list and ten gorgeous pics (courtesy mobile mania.sk), after the jump.

DISCUSSION

Post a pic next to the Q and then we'll see. My main complaint with smartphones is a matter of size and portability. I've owned the Treo 600, Siemens SX66, Cingular 2125, and Cingular 8125 and all were a bit too big (the 2125 wasn't so bad). I finally got fed up with looking excited to see everybody with a huge bulge in my pocket, and got a SLVR (which has now been replaced with a 3125 from Cingular which really does everything I could ask in a form factor I can live with).
