In a CTIA conference yesterday, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse, unveiled a new phone called Samsung Instinct. This is the device, which Sprint hopes to take on AT&T.

Other features are 3G and EV-DO Rev support, stereo Bluetooth, audible caller ID, voice dialling and commands, a full HTML browser, a digital music player , support for Sprint Radio Sprint TV, tethering, Microsoft Live Search, and integrated GPS with Sprint navigation.


While there is no IM capabilities yet, you will get multimedia messaging and access to personal and corporate e-mail.

One interesting upgrade from the iPhone is haptic keyboard.
