Mid-range Samsung clamshell for Sprint, anyone? Cousin to T-Mobile's T619, the SPH-M500 shares most of the spec sheet (save the radio, of course) such as a 262k color internal and external display, 1.3 megapixel camera, 50MB of internal memory, and Bluetooth. It also picks up where the T619 left off adding expandable memory via microSD, Power Vision, and support for turn by turn driving directions and mapping your location using Sprint's Location Based Services. Expect this device to set you back $279.99 full retail or $79.99 on a two year contract after the instant and mail-in rebates.
