Given the BlackJack's popularity on AT&T, it only makes sense that Sprint (among other carriers
) would be looking to get in on that action. Indeed, as expected
, Sprint has now launched Samsung's ACE (get it? like the really good card to have when you're playing blackjack?) that comes out swinging with Windows Mobile 6 Standard, 1.3 megapixel camera, microSD slot, stereo Bluetooth, EV-DO, and a SIM slot for hooking your globetrotting butt up with GSM service when you find yourself overseas; what it doesn't
have is HSDPA, so don't look at this puppy as an apples-for-apples BlackJack II
replacement. It's available now for $199.99 after the usual laundry list of rebates and contract discounts.
Separately, Sprint has also gone live with the M520, an unassuming slider we've known about for a while now
with GPS, a 1.3 megapixel cam, and tethering capability. This one comes in at a reasonable $49.99 after rebate on contract.
