Want a toucshcreen QWERTY handset but strapped for cash? Here’s one you can keep an eye out for, the Samsung Ch@t C350 (C3500).

Samsung Ch@t 350

This new Samsung handset comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA touchscreen complemented by a slide-out full QWERTY keypad, 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1 , FM radio, microSD card slot (supports up to 8GB), and quad-band GSM connectivity. No WiFi and 3G connecitivity here, which, coupled with its specs, strongly suggest that the Ch@t 350 will be more on the affordable side rather than the steep end of the pricing spectrum.
