Samsung Magnet is cheap, orange and has QWERTY keyboard, and we love it. Yes, the web browser is bit weak, and there is choice of colors, but we have nothing to say since it directly addresses the messaging market and bright colors. It is comfortable to hold, the operating system very responsive and bright screen is wide enough. It lacks 3G support, but this would mean higher price too.
