Sprint's Samsung M240 makes no attempt to be high-end

Chris Ziegler

Tired of the flurry of Samsung announcements yet? Hmm? Of course you aren't, so here's another one to keep you fed, fat, and happy: the M240 flip is now available on Sprint. Samsungs without names are typically extraordinarily low-end, and the M240's no exception -- the company flat-out describes it as a "no nonsense device focusing on the basics" with a non-EV-DO radio, voice dialing, speakerphone, basic (and we do mean basic) web access, and support for up to 500 contacts. It runs a cool $19.99 on contract after instant discount -- in other words, roughly 10 percent of the functionality of a BlackBerry Tour for 10 percent of the price.
