As far as hardware, the hot trend at CTIA 2009 was messaging phones. One of the models to debut at the show was the Samsung Propel Pro for AT&T, which will be available April 14 for $149.99 with a two-year contract.
Below the display, you get two soft keys, Talk and End buttons, a Home shortcut, a back button, and a navigation joystick. The controls are fairly easy to use, with the exception of the joystick, since it doesn't provide the most precise method for scrolling and selecting menu items.
The Samsung Propel Pro is equipped with a 3-megapixel camera with video-recording capabilities and auto focus. It's located on the back of the front cover, so you need to slide the phone open to use it.
