Samsung Instinct s50 to be called Instinct HD
Out of nowhere, a very trustful tipster of ours has contacted us to say that the new Instinct for Sprint will not be called the s50, but rather the Instinct HD. Okay, we like that one (and hope it is indeed real). Would this mean the new device will be capable of shooting and playing HD videos like the Omnia HD? We certainly hope so! Now what we would like to do is a quick recap of all the rumored names we have heard of for the Instinct’s successor. It was known as the Instinct2, Instinct Deuce, Dash, M850, Instinct s50 and now the Samsung Instinct HD. Wow, these sure were a lot of rumors.

The HD video, I don't know but I heard it may also have a slide out keyboard.. How's that for a new rumor?

If it's capable of shooting HD videos, that would make it the first in the US. I hope that's the case because that would mean Sprint is starting to be the originators again instead of the followers.

I was going to say, it doesn't surprise me that they changed the name to Instinct HD. Cus over a month ago it was made obvious in the high rez Zagg pic, then confirmed by World1-1 that the "Instinct 2" has hdmi out on the right side. The high rez pic has a hatch that says VIDEO on it. World1-1 says he has an HD option in video record mode. But so little love has been paid to this phone thru all mobile news sites that no one talked about it. I'm still excited, and I'm still looking forward to the BREW OS.
