Sprint's glossy Samsung Instinct

One new mobile phone that has been attracting attention & crowds at CTIA 2008 event is Sprint's Samsung Instinct (SPH-M800), set to be release this year summer. By a quick glance over Instinct, it'll easily remind us of the famous iPhone design; and even dubbed as "iPhone competitor" by a Sprint spokeswoman. Here are the rundown on what we'll be expecting inside it:

  • 3.1 inch display screen with 262,000 colors

  • CDMA\EVDO network

  • 2M pixels camera

  • stereo Bluetooth

  • audible caller ID

  • voice dialing & commands

  • full HTML browser

  • digital music player that shows album art

  • phone modem capability

  • threaded text conversation

  • microSD expansion slot

  • Microsoft Live Search

  • Sprint Music Store

  • Sprint Radio & TV

  • integrated GPS with Sprint Navigation

  • Visual Voicemail feature alike

Sprint only released a press statement that their Instinct mobile phone will be sold under $300 on June, the price tag is just another appealing factor besides the additional 2GB microSD & 3.5mm headset jack that come along in the package. But it seems like the glossy exterior of Instinct doesn't resemblance the power-features it has, Gizmodo have been reporting of a hang situation where they needed to do a hard reset on Instinct while browsing with Sprint Music Store.
