This week, Sprint has made a few interesting moves. While carriers like Verizon are on a high end product assault with repeated releases of phones like the HTC Thunderbolt, Samsung Droid Charge, LG Revolution, Droid…
Sprint has been talking up its 4G network for awhile, however, the cost of entry has been a bit prohibitive. Fortunately, Samsung’s here to the rescue. The two have paired up and have just released the latest info on their latest handset, the cheap Conquer 4G. This also happens to be their first 4G phone that releases under a hundred dollars, making it the most affordable 4G entry phone on the market.
So what does the Conquer bring to the table?
Quite a few things actually. First of all, it’s powered by a 1 GHz CPU – which enable it to run Android 2.3. As if Gingerbread wasn’t enough, it also comes with Sprint ID and access to Sprint’s fast 4G network. It’s also got a 3.5-inch touchscreen plus two cameras: one a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera with flash and zoom and the second being a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera enabling video chat while on-the-go.
Other features include the device’s capacity to use Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks whenever necessary, WiFi capability along with GPS, a microSD slot that ups onboard storage to 32GB from the original 2GB, HotSpot capability – making sure you can use networks with other devices, and Bluetooth. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also got Android Market access.
To get all of this, you’ll need a Samsung Conquer 4G, of course, plus you need to activate one of the Sprint Everything Data plans plus a required $10 Premium Data add-on charge for smartphones. This gives you unlimited Web, texting and calling to and from any location in the States while on the Sprint Network. To get the Conquer 4G itself, will cost $99 – cheap at what you can ultimately get.
