Forum Added for the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G

Recently, we’ve seen quite a flurry of development activity for Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G. As the little brother to the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II, the Blaze is not exactly Samsung’s flagship device on Magenta. However for those looking for a powerful device with a less huge screen and a lower price tag, the Blaze packs quite a punch that may make other, higher priced smartphones a bit nervous. Featuring a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor and 42 Mbit HSPA+ connectivity, the Blaze certainly lives up to its name.

Now thanks to the burgeoning development community, we have root, recovery, and a return-to-stock ODIN package. Given the development activity and countless requests from our awesome community, we saw it fit to give the device a home on our forums. If you already own or are interested in picking up the Blaze, head over to the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G forum to get started.

Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S".
