Would you look at that. I just dropped a post about the Instinct Mini and Sprint goes and officially announces the handset. So it looks like it won’t be named the Instinct Mini, but instead will take the moniker of ‘Instinct s30′. Aside from a refreshed form factor from the original Instinct, the Instinct S30 offers the same haptic touchscreen action, a 2MP camera and a Speech to Action button that lets users activate a myriad of functions such as ‘text, picture messaging, traffic, movie, sports, news and search’. Samsung has also conceded to the pressures of ‘open source’ and will provide access to core Java APIs which should allow creative developers to take advantage of all the handset has to offer.
Starting April 19th the Sprint Instinct S30 will be available online and in stores for $129.99 after a 2-year agreement and $100 mail-in-rebate.
