Funner? Did I just say funner?
BGR's got the scoop on Matrix, complete with a Spec Sheet, and it looks like this could be a nice QWERTY non-smartphone for that special tween texter in your life. Seriously, AT&T needs some messaging-centric devices and if this thing isn't as gargantuan as the Duo, it could shape up pretty nicely: 3G data speeds, Mobile Email and IM, 1.3 MP camera with video capture and Video Share, media player with AT&T Mobile Music, XM Radio, and CV (video) support, Stereo Bluetooth, and that special dual-sliding design that affords dedicated numeric and QWERTY keypads.
And, hey, look at that - your choice of black, red, or blue. No word yet on pricing or launch date, but I'm gonna take a stab and say $149 on contract and available in time for the Xmas shopping season.
