Cingular has announced availability of the Samsung BlackJack, a thin QWERTY smartphone set to compete with the Motorola Q and T-Mobile Dash. The BlackJack, also known as the SGH-i607, is a Cingular exclusive and is also one of only a few HSDPA compatible handsets in their lineup. Size wise it's comparable to the Q and Dash, though it's relatively light compared to either.

Features of the Samsung BlackJack include:

Quad-band GSM plus HSDPA and EDGE data
Just 12mm thick
QVGA display
Windows Mobile 5.0
1.3 megapixel camera
Stereo Bluetooth
microSD card slot

Cingular will begin selling the BlackJack this week for as low as $199 after rebate with a 2-year contract including unlimited data. That matches the price point of the Q and Dash (though their contract requirements are not as expensive).
