Just when I thought Sprint had begun to get their shit together, they go and officially introduce the Samsung Instinct HD.  This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about this device, but up until now we could only go on rumor and speculation when it came to specs.

Within Sprint’s official announcement, they’ve stated, and I quote that the Samsung Instinct HD “allows photo and video playback on an HD capable auxiliary device but it does not provide HD playback directly on the handset.”  Damn, talk about taking the wind out of your own sail.  Of course, this is more Samsung’s doing than Sprint, but that should mean a more affordable price tag, right?  Wrong, you’ll be dropping $250 after a 2-year contact signing.

At least this version includes a 5 megapixel camera that can record HD video, and Samsung has also been kind enough to toss in Stereo Bluetooth, an accelerometer, visual voicemail, a full Opera Mobile 9.7 Web browser and WiFi connectivity.

Expect the Samsung Instinct HD to arrive on 9/27 at a Best Buy store near you.
