Mobile Syrup June 16, 2012 displayed an article and a Samsung phone with a 5 row QWERTY.
The heading of the article says:

The second sentence of the article says:
"After releasing the Galaxy S Glide last year on Rogers and AT&T, the company is looking to bring a similar device to T-Mobile, and therefore potentially Mobilicity, WIND and Videotron."
