Sprint brings out Samsung Instinct with attached strings June20th
Sprint clearly wants to fuel the Samsung Instinct vs. Apple iPhone 3G fire; they have announced they will be selling their Samsung Instinct touch-screen mobile phone beginning 20th June and with a price tag of $129.99, which actually takes into account a new two year contract and $100.00 rebate after mail-in.
However this move brings the Samsung Instinct out for lower than the originally expected $199.99 price everyone has been expecting. Customers wishing to purchase Instinct through Sprint retail stores, Website (www.sprint.com) and telesales (1-800-SPRINT1.) Sprint’s exclusive retail partner is Best Buy for the Samsung Instinct from June 20 – August 28.
Sprint offer Everything plans on the Samsung Instinct which begin at $69.99 per month for 450 voice minutes, Talk/Message/Data share plans at $129.99 per month with 1500 voice minutes shared between two lines, and Sprint’s Signature Simply Everything Plan unlimited voice and data service for $99.99 per month.
At CTIA Wireless 2008, the Samsung Instinct mobile phone was named “Best in Show” in the 3rd annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Award competition, and again at CTIA 2008 the Samsung Instinct won honours from the editors of LAPTOP for “Most Innovative Product at CTIA Wireless 2008”
Seems Sprint is pushing the Samsung Instinct in the hopes of drawing mobile users away fron the iPhone 3G perhaps, the monthly price plans seem to hover on the same level as AT&T’s iPhone options, which doesn’t really surprise does it?
