UPDATED: Samsung Instinct HD caught on tape
The Samsung Instinct HD was announced just yesterday and the first video preview of it has already popped on YouTube. The video reveals that the device will provide access to popular social networks like Facebook, My Space, Twitter and YouTube. In case you don't know what the phone is all about we'll give you a quick reminder.. Compared to the original Instinct, the screen has now grown a bit to 3.2 inches and the WQGVA resolution has been scrapped in favor of the higher HVGA (320x480) res. The camera has also gone a few big steps further from the 2-megapixel unit on the original. It is now 5-megapixel and can record HD videos in 1280x720 pixels, which can then be watched on an auxiliary HD capable device, thanks to the phone's HDMI connector. Unfortunately, the camera and TV out features weren't covered in the video., The handset will be available for purchase from BestBuy starting this Monday for $249.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and with a 2-year contract with Sprint.
