It's official! Instinct S30 coming to Sprint April 19th
All of the talk and gossip is now done with. Sprint and Samsung have officially introduced the Instinct S30, the "mini" version of the popular model. There are some changes, including the addition of the Opera Mini 4.2 web browser. Games like "Guitar Hero-World Tour" and "Are you smarter than a 5th grader" will be included on the handset. While data will be running on the slower EV-DO Rev. 0 network as opposed to the original model running data over Rev .A, all of the best features from the first Instinct are found on the S30 including Sprint TV, a virtual QWERTY keyboard with haptic feedback to type out those SMS messages, a 2MP camera with video capture and Visual Voicemail. The S30 will also have a Speech to Action button which allows the user to press a button and vocally request an application-like "Go to texting"-and the phone will respond by performing the requested action. Bowing to developers wishes, access will be allowed to core Java APIs which should make it easier for new applications to be produced (For those with the original Instinct, Sprint plans an OTA upgrade to allow the same access on that device). The Instinct S30 is expected to be at Sprint stores on April 19th as we expected, and will cost $129.99 after a $70 instant discount, a $100 mail-in rebate, and your signature on a two-year pact. From rumor to spy shot to official release, we have watched the entire process move rather quickly and now its just a matter of time before you can have this device in your hand.
