For those of you on T-Mobile (or looking to switch carriers) holding out for the Galaxy S Blaze 4G by Samsung, you will be happy to know it is going to launch on March 28th.

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G joins the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Amaze as T-Mobile’s high-end 4G Android smartphone options.  The Galaxy S Blaze sports a 3.97 inch Super AMOLED display, Android 2.3, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and operates on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42Mbps network.  For the most part, it features high-end hardware and the only real complaint is its lack of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board.  Android ICS will hopefully be provided at a later date, however.

Again, it will launch for $149 on a two year agreement, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Amaze sell for $229 each.  On March 28th, it will be available in all T-Mobile retail stores nationwide, but it will also be available starting March 21st in select retail stores.
