Sprint to Sell #Samsung Conquer 4G for $100 - #smartphone
Sprint plans to sell the Samsung Conquer, a mid-level 4G Android device, starting on August 21 for $100 with a two-year contract.
The Overland Park, Kan.-based carrier said the Conquer runs on its 3G and 4G networks, offering speeds of more than 10-megabits per second — with average download speeds of 3- to 6-megabits. The device is also powered by a 1-gigahertz chip, features a large 3.5-inch touch screen display and offers dual-cameras — a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing lens with flash and zoom and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing one for video chat.
Running Android 2.3 operating system, dubbed “Gingerbread,” the Conquer comes pre-installed with Google’s popular apps, such as Google Search, Google Maps with Navigation, Mobile Instant, Gmail, Google Earth and more.
“The price of Conquer makes Sprint’s 4G speeds accessible to more customers,” said Fared Adib, Sprint’s vice president of product development. “Our customers can really do more for less when this ultra-affordable 4G device.”
Sprint, once the front-runner in 4G technology, has struggled as larger rivals beef up their networks. Sprint, which partnered with Clearwire to offer WiMax, has seen its lead eroded as AT&T and Verizon move to LTE, a faster 4G standard. Earlier this month, Sprint announced it signed a deal with upstart LightSquared to work together to provide LTE speeds.
