infoSync: We’ve got new details on the Samsung Instinct, available next month on Sprint. Will it be the hottest phone of the summer?
When we first saw the Samsung Instinct at CTIA 2008 in April, we were surprised. First, we were surprised that Sprint had gone official with their mostly-touch Samsung phone before Verizon Wireless, whose Samsung Glyde had long been rumored for release. Second, we were surprised by how much work had gone into the Samsung Instinct. Most of this effort seemed to focus on emulating the user experience from Apple’s iPhone, but the Instinct packs some innovations of its own. In an exclusive Web seminar today, Sprint laid out more details and gave us a better idea of what to expect with this phone.
