The Galaxy S Blaze 4G will be arriving in late March for $150 with a two year agreement, specs wise it has a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 5 megapixel camera with support for 720p video recording, 1.3 megapixel camera on the front and HSPA+ support up to 42 Mbps.

At this years CES Nokia announced that they would be bringing the Nokia Lumia 900 to the US, but there was no word of a release in any other territories.
