New Sprint roadmap says Samsung Conquer 4G pushed for August, and a mystery Motorola XT603 slated for October
We have the Samsung Conquer 4G, which was supposed to appear by the end of July seemingly pushed for 8/21. This handset is supposed to take the place of the Sanyo Zio. This is a low-end Gingerbread handset with a 3.5" display, 1GHz chipset and 3MP camera on the back, which should be coming pretty cheap on contract.
Further down the list we spot a few smartphones of RIM's new crop. The BlackBerry Bold 9930 and Torch 9850 (aka BlackBerry Volt), are supposed to hit shelves 8/21 as well, whereas the run-of-the-mill BlackBerry Curve 9350 will appear 9/9, and in purple as well. The BlackBerry Bold 9930 should combine a 2.8" capacitive touchscreen with the beloved RIM keyboard, plus 1.2GHz processor and 5MP camera, while the Volt keeps this hardware, but as a true Torch successor is a slider with 3.2" display.
Next in line are two handsets from Kyocera - the Kyocera KYS3015 is supposed to replace the eco-friendly LG Remarq, while the Kyocera KYC5120 will take the place of the Samsung Intercept, from which we can safely assume that it should be an Android handset.
The Motorola MB855 listed as coming "Summer 2011" is actually the Motorola PHOTON 4G, which was already announced for 7/31 launch and $199.99 on contract. A mysterious Motorola XT603 is the interesting thing in this roadmap, scheduled for availability 10/2. It appeared on a document for Wi-Fi certification as well, but specs remain in the realm of speculation.
Rounding up the list are two offerings from value-for-money Asian manufacturers - the Huawei M650 smartphone for 10/30, and a ZTE V55 tablet pushed way forward to the first quarter of 2012. Not much can be obtained about the specs of those two. The Huawei M650, for all we know, could turn out Huawei's Windows Phone handset for Sprint, whereas ZTE's tablet should be shipping directly with Android Ice Cream Sandwich next year.
Of note is that the LG Optimus Slider has dropped from the previous Sprint roadmap, which we saw last month. Any of those upcoming Sprint darlings caught your attention? We know, we know, wake me up when the roadmap includes a Galaxy S II version, right?
