Coming off the recent release of the Samsung Corby Pro, it looks like Rogers is getting ready to jump back into the Corby ring with the launch of the Corby Plus – a 2.6-inch touchscreen device (resolution of 320 x 240) that has a slide out full QWERTY keyboard and Samsung’s Touch Wiz UI. Overall dimensions are 102.3 x 52.4 x 15.9mm and weighs in at 113.7 grams. The Corby Plus has a 2 megapixel camera with video capabilities, email, SMS and MMS, music player, FM Radio, can hold up to 8GB with a microSD card.

The dummy phones started to arrive at Rogers locations and we are waiting on price plans and an official launch date.

UPDATE: We’ve now been informed that the Corby Plus is set to be part of Rogers Pay As You Go line it’s just a less equipped version of the Corby Pro. In addition, this should be launching within a couple weeks and the unconfirmed price will be around $129.99 outright.

    Why is this phone so ugly…

    Less equipped… does that mean just phone and charger only? Or there are hardware changes too?

    @ xaueious – Who cares?? It’s a $129.99 qwerty/touch phone. Have you seen the other prepaid options right now with Rogers?? If anything, it’s a great 2nd/backup phone.

    So, is this almost identical to the Corby Pro? Or is the screen .02″ smaller? Cause I thought the Pro was 2.8″?
    And I suppose the Corby Plus is only 2G? Might be an ok phone of it was 3G.

    It’s ugly… I would never buy this phone… What a waste of money… I would rather get something that is cheaper and much more attractive…
