Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's

Our full review and video tour of Samsung's new QWERTY phone with an unusual square form factor. Find out if this stylish slider is a messaging maestro.

Samsung should have named its new full-featured 3G-enabled Propel, officially the SGH-a767, "Portrait," since that's the position you always hold the phone in. Instead of the dual ergonomic arrangement of combining a standard candybar cellphone in portrait mode and a slideout/flip down QWERTY in landscape mode ala LG's enV, Samsung's Rant, Pantech's Duo, et al, Samsung has made the Propel slightly wider with a wide LCD screen and full slide down BlackBerry-like keyboard so you never have to rotate the phone. It's an ingenious design solution. Innovative ergonomics are nice, of course, but there's both more and less to the Propel than meets the portrait eye.
