Instinct keeps getting better, now offers calendar sync
Things just keep getting better for Sprint's feature phone.  After releasing a firmware update a few weeks back that allowed third party applications to access the keyboard (Opera Mini, yay!) and added document viewing capabilities (.doc, .xls, .pdf, etc.), Sprint has again updated the Samsung Instinct to bring corporate calendar support to the phone.  Sprint Mobile Email Work, developed by SEVEN, already supported synchronization of work email and contacts, and now anyone with an Exchange server or Lotus Notes account can also take control of their calendar via their mobile device.

This is a full featured solution, which gives the user complete control over their calendar.  From the Instinct users users can see upcoming appointments in daily, weekly and monthly views, as well as an appointment view which gives them further detail about the event.  Appointments can be created, edited and deleted on the go, and users are able to accept and decline meeting invitations.  Anything done on the phone, of course, syncs back with the server.  The update to Sprint Mobile Email is available now to all existing customers, and new customers will automatically benefit from the changes.  Sprint plans to bring this update to other non-PDA phones in the future, further blurring the line between consumer and corporate devices.
